One Pot Wonders by Lindsey Bareham

Lovereading view...

I’ve always enjoyed Lindsey Bareham’s recipes and have a number of her books but missed out on this one first time round. One Pot cooking is something of a passion for Lindsey, saving as it does fuel, time and washing up. One-pot meals can be slow or fast and can be made in the oven, baked, fried or stewed - not to forget soup and curries. If you don’t buy cookery books because you can only find 2 or 3 recipes you want to cook, then try this one as I suspect you’ll find a great many recipes to your liking – and many that will become part of your basic repertoire. Good food, good ideas and some informative and helpful introductory notes to the recipes.

Lindsey Bareham is one of those writers - like Elizabeth David or Jane Grigson before her - whose books have the power to change the way people cook and eat. * Sunday Times * I want to cook every single recipe in this book! -- Nigella Lawson (referring to The Trifle Bowl and Other Tales) A great read as well as a really useful cookery book. * Waitrose Weekend * Lindsey Bareham is a star. Her recipes brighten up each day for the desperate domestic cook. Her idea of good food is my idea of good food - easy on the skills, easy on the eye and tremendously tasty. -- Matthew Fort Not only a collection of great recipes but also a unique glimpse into a terrific cook's kitchen. * Telegraph *

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
