Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Roast Chicken and Other Stories provide an insight into Simon Hopkinson's unique style of unpretentious cooking with 160 of his favourite recipes. Simon Hopkinson's forty favourite ingredients include everyday basics as potatoes, chicken and cod as well as more exotic foods such as asparagus and truffles. The book is arranged alphabetically with a chapter on each food. Unable to hide his great love of food, Hopkinson writes about why he likes each particular ingredient, and gives sensible advice on quality, variety and good cooking principles together with the recipes.

The book is aimed at home cooks and all the recipes can be prepared by anyone with basic cooking skills. From Grilled Augergine with Pesto to Roast Chicken and Homemade Ice Cream, Simon Hopkinson's foood is always honest and inviting, designedto please rather than simply to impress.

ruth-ida, February 7, 2011 (view all comments by ruth-ida)
this was a must for my collection. the short essay that
precedes the recipes often has some of the best tips and
ideas. i'm giving it as a gift to someone that really likes
liver, marrow, and kidneys. me, not so much. but the book
works on many other levels for my cooking.
