Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Pumpkin mash

    • j_h on January 09, 2015

      This is a good side dish for Lemony leek meatballs from Jerusalem by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi -

  • Leek and chickpea soup

    • trentendnz on October 06, 2015

      Pleasantly surprised, was looking for a leek soup without potatoes and saw this, recipe looked more interesting than exciting but turned out great. Much deeper sweeter flavour than I expected and quick too. Will deffo make again.

  • Leek and pumpkin risotto

    • ithyt on October 06, 2015

      6.13 Wasn't quite long enough to cook pumpkin so just turned off and let steam which seemed to work. Quite tasty.

  • Blini basics

    • ithyt on January 05, 2016

      1.16 I substituted whole-meal spelt flour for the buckwheat flour - divine - great blini recipe just start a day in advance.

  • Pasta dough basics

    • ithyt on October 06, 2015

      5.13 Easy - just make sure pasta separated well with flour to prevent chunking together.

  • Greek salad

    • ithyt on October 06, 2015

      12.13 Yum yum yum! Substituted red onion w red caps. Feta a must have - dressing perfect.

  • Pear and honey smoothie

    • ithyt on April 17, 2016

      4.16 I found this really runny - and added some chia seeds.

  • Beef marinade

    • ithyt on October 06, 2015

      7.13 Used for beef to use on crostini - great.

  • Scone basics

    • ldockel on July 17, 2016

      Faultless Make Verbatim

Publishers Text

Marie Claire Kitchen is the ultimate companion for the time-poor home cook who wants light and healthy food that appeals to the eye as well as the palate. Cooking the best of each season's fresh ingredients simply is the essence of Michele Cranston's philosophy, and in this book, she equips cooks of all skill levels to create a multitude of recipes bearing this signature. The best of the basics: Marie Claire Kitchen features an extensive collection of basic recipes and variations for breakfast staples, savoury sauces, spice mixes, soup bases, marinades, chutneys, rubs, dressings, pastry, cake mixes, pizza bases, and fruit and dairy based sauces desserts. Luxury pantry: Each chapter contains a 'luxury pantry' section, full of fresh and fast recipes and ideas, many of which involve no cooking. Using just a couple of fresh or luxurious ingredients in addition to pantry basics, these ideas, combined with the best of the basics, add up to an endless source of inspiration. The best recipes: Michele Cranston's all-time favourites for every meal type and occasion: Breakfast, Spa (light meals), Lunch, Afternoon tea, Cocktails, Dinner, Sweets, Nightcap. Photography: Complimenting the ephemeral still life photography that has become a Marie Claire trademark, Kitchen will have an injection of lifestyle, reflecting the colour themes of the main recipe chapters.
