From Nature to Plate : A Seasonal Journey by Tom Kitchin

From Nature to Plate : A Seasonal Journey

Cookery, Food and Drink   

Sue Baker's view...

Not being a terribly good cook, I’m always rather wary of “Chefy” books; I don’t have the time or the skills to emulate the creations and certainly don’t have the patience to faff around with elaborate garnishes and fancy finishes. Yet, with From Nature to Plate, I did feel the urge to cook, the recipes are a good mix, some very simple, others more elaborate but there are notes and suggestions for tailoring dishes to your circumstances. The recipes are well laid out and clear to follow and with the emphasis on seasonality one can progress through the book from Spring to Winter. It makes good bedside reading too, with an autobiographical thread, details on produce and throughout the book we meet some of the people who dedicate their lives to producing the very best produce.
