The New English Kitchen: Changing the Way You Shop, Cook and Eatby Rose Prince
"The New English Kitchen has two genuinely original aspects. The first is that it attempts to combine two genres of food writing which have, for the most part, remained disturbingly apart: the epicurean genre of recipe-writing and the anxious genre of food politics....[T]he second original aspect [is] its insistence on the economics of food....In its particular combination of pleasure and principle...The New English Kitchen can claim to be a subtly transformative work." Bee Wilson, the Times Literary Supplement (read the entire Times Literary Supplement review)
Synopses & Reviews
A modern day household gem, giving a lifetime of stylish, beautiful, good tasting food and most of all making the most of food's usefulness. The New English Kitchen is a cookery book for our times. You do not need to be a millionaire to eat the finest food on offer, nor do you need to spend forever slaving in the kitchen. This book shows you how to make your meals go further, revealing practical ways to make the highest quality food fit inside a tight budget. Good food relies on skillful shopping, and The New English Kitchen is a hard-hitting guide to the most controversial food issues, helping you make the right decisions whether buying tuna or veal, milk or prawns. It also brims with suggestions, from exploring the flavours of unexploited fish, choosing inexpensive cuts of meat, to cooking with the new artisan British cheeses. With over 280 easy and distinctive recipes, and a mine of quick ideas, Rose Prince shows how everyone can eat economically and well, every single day.
"A cookbook with a difference. I instantly warmed to its readability, fierce intelligence and admirable sense of economy." Chris Hirst, The Independent
"A timely book with a practical and economical approach to sourcing top-quality, locally produced food." Evening Standard
Acclaimed food writer Rose Prince's guidance on making the most of local availability and seasonality, keeping a well-stocked store cupboard, growing staples such as herbs, and peppering our diet with luxuries such as Parma ham, figs, and wonderful cheeses shows that The New English Kitchen is not so much a cookbook but a plan, one that will endure as a practical manual for future generations of cooks.
