Winter draws on – as they say and what better for a spot of personal central heating than Clarissa’s Comfort Food. It’s not specifically cold-weather cookery but there are some ideal winter warmers to be found here. Clarissa Dickson Wright presents a wonderful collection of old and new, recipes to get you cooking, recipes to remember and recipes to try. This is ideal home cooking, no frills, well explained and with many anecdotes along the way.

Synopsis

Clarissa's Comfort Food by Clarissa Dickson Wright

Comfort food can restore body and mind. Whether it is the beginning or end of a hectic day, we often turn to food for comfort and pleasure as well as nourishment. Clarissa Dickson Wright, the knowledgeable gourmet, has selected 100 of her favourite recipes to create an eclectic and inspirational collection of dishes for you to enjoy at home. People are becoming increasingly aware of the advantages of homemade, simple food that will nourish friends and family instead of choosing a takeaway or buying ready meals that are often full of chemicals and hidden nasties. Clarissa has revived and simplified old classic recipes as well as presenting original recipes that have been inspired by her travels around the world. Choose from warming classics like Sausage Casserole or Fish Pie as well as more exotic dishes such as Pheasant with Dates and Walnuts and gorgeous desserts like Bread and Butter Pudding. Clarissa also entertains and informs the reader with her witty, historical and often nostalgic introductions.
