Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Squash speltotto with walnuts

    • dyanarose on November 20, 2022

      Another tasty version of winter vegetable speltotto from River Cottage. I topped it with walnuts and feta to add a little salty taste.

  • Spicy pork belly and butter bean hotpot

    • dyanarose on October 19, 2022

      Substituted the veg for what I had in the house. Used carrots, beets, red cabbage and spring onions. After the first hour of cooking I removed the top layer of fat from the meat. Next time I think I'll put the star anis in a pouch because it's not nice to chew down on after it breaks into bits. Looked a bit of a state in the end but was very, very good.

Publishers Text

The perception that there is the food we love, and the food that's good for us, and never the twain shall meet, is swept away by this stunning collection of delicious, heart-warming recipes, that also happen to be packed with good things that help keep us well.

And Good Comfort is in every way generous, as Hugh makes our favourite foods healthier not by taking stuff out of them, but by putting more in: the best whole ingredients, celebrated in all their colourful and seasonal diversity. We can relish a hearty winter stew that is deeply beefy, but also heaving with healthy veg. We can tuck into a pie knowing that the pastry is awesome and the filling wholesome. Much maligned greens come out to play in moreish gratins and leafy curries. And we can put tea time treats on the table knowing they will bring our family and friends, and kids in particular, goodness as well as happiness.

Ultimately Hugh leads us on a journey to tweak our tastebuds and pamper our palates so that we can take as much pleasure – and ultimately more – from dishes that we know will do us good.
