Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Gluten-free orange and almond cake

    • trudys_person on October 13, 2017

      This is a lovely flavourful moist cake. I made it for a friend's birthday and everybody loved it, whether they were GF or not. I just made a glaze of orange juice and icing sugar. I'll try the citrus topping next time. The ground almonds I used were not blanched, so it didn't look quite as refined as the photo. I'll find blanched for next time. And I used regular grind cornmeal instead of polenta - think they are the same things - it's a matter of coarseness and semantics. Very easy to make! I did have to bake it for 55 minutes at 325F.

  • Italian-style meatballs

    • ithyt on May 30, 2016

      5.16 Tasty mid week meal. T enjoyed. Kids ok

    • e_ballad on April 22, 2018

      Yum! These were incredible. And crazily easy to knock up. Highly recommend!

  • Pasta with broccoli

    • ithyt on May 30, 2016

      5.16 Delicious mid week meal- kids loved. Tasty quick and easy.

  • Breakfast on the run bars

    • e_ballad on August 13, 2019

      Also found in “Essential: Volume 2” as “Gluten-free snack bars” (albeit with a scaled-up quantity), these would make a great nut-free school lunch. If left out at room temperature, they did become quite soft - I wonder if freezing them would work better if used in a packed lunch.

  • Last-minute butter chicken

    • e_ballad on February 05, 2021

      This is ridiculously quick & was devoured by the kidlets. Note: if you are another big fan of Annabel’s & you also own her cookbook “Essentials”, this is NOT the same recipe, despite having the same title.

  • Sunday sauce

    • e_ballad on April 22, 2018

      A nice tomato sauce, but not enough to prevent me from returning to Marcella...

  • Freekeh with eggplant and herbs

    • e_ballad on March 11, 2017

      There's quite a few issues with this recipe. With a 12 min cooking time for the freekeh, I'm guessing that cracked freekeh is called for - the recipe doesn't state this & the accompanying photo appeared to use wholegrains. I did use the cracked variety, but the volume of fluid was way off & it would've resulted in sludge. Strongly recommend following different cooking instructions for your freekeh & then proceeding with the rest of this recipe as it was quite tasty.

Publishers Text

The fourth installment in Annabel’s series of seasonal publications, Share the Love brings together more than 120 soul-warming eating ideas, including everything from cosy brunches and hearty oven bakes to zesty winter salads and easy Asian dinners.

"Whether it's a simple pot of soup or an elaborate multi-course dinner, cooking gives us the chance to share the love,” says Annabel. “I wanted to show that winter food doesn’t have to be bland and stodgy. It’s all about keeping your tastebuds tempted with creative combinations of tastes and textures drawn from a global pantry of flavours.”

A whole chapter is devoted to make-ahead meals that will wow your friends at your next pot-luck dinner party, another focuses on family friendly sausage recipes, and a third suggests innovative new bento lunchbox ideas.

For the sweet-toothed, there’s a decadent collection of best-ever chocolate baking, some sublime citrus desserts and Annabel’s favourite autumn preserves.

Famous for her clever cooking tips, Annabel offers advice for adapting all your winter favourites for the slow-cooker, and a handy survival guide for that oh-no moment when you realise you don’t have the right size cake tin.

A six-week meal planner offers simple solutions for weeknight meals, while Annabel also provides menu suggestions for every occasion, including a vegetarian feast, gluten-free guests and entertaining on a shoestring.
