For anyone who likes to read their cookery books as well as use them, this is a good choice – and as an added bonus, the photography is delectable. A lovely nostalgic look at food, Sophie Dahl presents a through the year look at favourite dishes and in her notes and additions to the recipes explains why she loves them. Her first book, Miss Dahl’s Voluptuous Delights (listed below) was a huge success and From Season to Season is every bit as good - worthy of a place in any gourmet’s kitchen.

Miss Dahl’s Voluptuous Delights, Sophie Dahl
Notes from My Kitchen Table, Gwyneth Paltrow
Continuing where her hugely successful Voluptuous Delights left off, bestselling author Sophie Dahl offers up a seasonal almanac of bountiful dishes alongside warm food-filled memories and musings.
Taking a gastronomic journey through the seasons, from the Victorian Beeton era to a recent sodden Parisian evening, Dahl captures the smoke filled days of Autumn with a nostalgic Squash and Parmesan soup, the blooming warmth of an English garden in high summer with Grilled Peaches with Pistachios and Ricotta; and the burgeoning beginnings of Spring with a Butter Lettuce, Lobster and Crayfish Salad.
Bursting with moreish yet nutritious recipes for budding foodies and seasoned gourmets alike, stunning photography and Sophie's delightfully quirky illustrations, this latest offering promises pleasure, indulgence and of course, simple, good food.
