Alice Hart is an exciting and authoritative new young voice on food who loves to share her culinary knowledge with friends. In this book she encourages her generation of 20- and 30-somethings to cook the original, modern food they enjoy to fit the lifestyles they lead. Dip into Alice’s Cookbook in January to find an inspirational New Year brunch, or during August for a vibrant and memorable summer kitchen supper. Each recipe is designed to fit into busy social lives: Hands-on cooking times are provided for each dish, menus are adaptable to seasons and availability, and advice is given to scale quantities up or down to feed a crowd (or not).
A cookbook filled with recipes to nourish a busy lifestyle.
Stop eating prepackaged pasta because you have no time to cook, writes the author. Don't miss all the jokes at the dinner party because you are sweating it out over the stove. Food editor Hart thinks spending time with friends and family is made great by sharing a fantastic meal. To pull this off, the author prepares most meals early. "This advance prepping is my way of picking a path through life's vicissitudes, with sanity somewhat intact and delectable food on the table," she writes in the introduction to her debut cookbook. Hart follows that up with easy-to-follow menus and recipes for seasonal lunches, portable breakfasts and parties, among other occasions. She breaks down exact prep time, as well as how long a recipe can be refrigerated. The author has even manipulated recipes so that multiple items can be in the oven at the same time and temperature. The recipe for Quick Damper Bread Dipping Sticks, meant to be cooked over a campfire, includes tips on how to transport prepped ingredients to the wilderness. The author's menu for an Autumn Sunday Lunch for Six includes Carmelized Baby Roots, Feta and Sweet Lemon Dressing; Slow-Roasted Red-Currant and Thyme Lamb Shoulder; Glazed Cabbage; Giant Yorkshire Pudding; and a Pear and Almond Tarte Tatin. To this feast, Hart folds in as many time-saving tips as possible and provides a minute-by-minute break down of how to get all of the dishes on the table by 2 p.m.
