Synopsis

Alice's Cookbook by Alice Hart

Alice Hart is an exciting, authoritative new young voice on food who loves to share her culinary knowledge with friends. For her, food is about fun. In this, her first book, she aims to encourage her generation of 20- and 30-somethings to cook the original, modern food they enjoy to fit the lifestyles they lead. With chapters based around occasions - breakfast and brunches, suppers and shared lunches, laid-back parties, outdoor camping and picnic food - Alice is acutely aware of seasonal cooking, dividing the recipes into Frost and Fireside or Sunshine and Strawberries. Whenever you dip into the book - whether it be in January to find a New Year brunch, during August for a faded summer kitchen supper for friends, or in winter for ideas for a chic drinks party - you will find a selection of inspiring and memorable menus. Recipes are eclectic and varied, ranging from Boursin Omelette Baguettes (Portable Breakfast for a Crowd), Campfire charred mackerel with red chicory and pomegranate (Summer Camping), Lemongrass pork bun bowls (Autumn Supper), to Toffee Pears with Flaked Almonds (Winter Film Night). Alice shows how to make cooking for a crowd easier and cheaper, and her practical hints on timing a meal, making your storecupboard work for you and scaling quantities up or down will make life more easy for people who love to cook and eat. This book is above all cook-friendly, with quick ideas for packed lunches and recipes to get you out of a fix when time is really tight. As Alice says, it's not just about cooking, it's about enjoying life to the full.

About the Author

Alice Hart, 28, was the youngest ever food editor at Waitrose Food Illustrated, a chef, and a food stylist whose friends describe her as a 'feeder'. Her firm grasp on what people love to cook and eat comes from amazingly broad experience. Since begging her way into the pastry section at the renowned Griffin Inn in Sussex as a teenager, she has gained a degree in physiology and neuroscience, run a farmer's market bakery stall and become an alumnus of Leiths School of Food and Wine. Her popup restaurant week in London's Shoreditch in February sold out in less than a day. Later this year she plans to launch a Vietnamese restaurant. And whenever she has the time, she is cooking and travelling in her pride and joy: Myrtle the Hurtle, a bay window, 1972 VW camper van, fully decked-out with kitchen. Author Location: London
