Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Crisp, maple-sugared bacon with oven hash browns and poached eggs

    • Melanie on March 02, 2014

      The hash browns were great! It took a while to bring them together so probably wouldn't make regularly. The maple syrup bacon was okay but only okay - not worth a repeat. Instead of poached eggs I went with scrambled.

  • Maple and blueberry sticky buns

    • Melanie on March 02, 2014

      Definitely sticky! Very moist, I didn't need to drizzle with the extra syrup as I found that they didn't need it. Use a pastry scraper when working the dough as it is quite sticky. Worked well in the muffin tin even though the pinwheels didn't look that great. I substituted dried currants for the blueberries which worked really well.

  • Cheddar cornbread muffins

    • Melanie on March 02, 2014

      Very good - best served warm within a day or so of baking. I ate these with one of the Bill Granger tomato chutney recipes. I substituted mozzarella for part of cheddar cheese (mozzarella went into the batter and I used cheddar for the centre). I also subbed lemon and milk for the buttermilk.

  • Glazed cabbage

    • Barb_N on November 14, 2015

      I adapted this recipe heavily; well I used the same ingredients but roasted cabbage wedges with liquid to accompany cider braised pork. Tasty and simple.

  • Honey's raspberry turnovers

    • TLouise on December 27, 2020

      Great easy recipe. Don't use frozen fruit or they end up a little soggy.

Publishers Text

Alice Hart is an exciting, authoritative new young voice on food who loves to share her culinary knowledge with friends. For her, food is about fun. In this, her first book, she aims to encourage her generation of 20- and 30-somethings to cook the original, modern food they enjoy to fit the lifestyles they lead. With chapters based around occasions - breakfast and brunches, suppers and shared lunches, laid-back parties, outdoor camping and picnic food - Alice is acutely aware of seasonal cooking, dividing the recipes into Frost and Fireside or Sunshine and Strawberries. Whenever you dip into the book - whether it be in January to find a New Year brunch, during August for a faded summer kitchen supper for friends, or in winter for ideas for a chic drinks party - you will find a selection of inspiring and memorable menus.

Recipes are eclectic and varied, ranging from Boursin Omelette Baguettes (Portable Breakfast for a Crowd), Campfire charred mackerel with red chicory and pomegranate (Summer Camping), Lemongrass pork bun bowls (Autumn Supper), to Toffee Pears with Flaked Almonds (Winter Film Night).

Alice shows how to make cooking for a crowd easier and cheaper, and her practical hints on timing a meal, making your storecupboard work for you and scaling quantities up or down will make life more easy for people who love to cook and eat. This book is above all cook-friendly, with quick ideas for packed lunches and recipes to get you out of a fix when time is really tight. As Alice says, it's not just about cooking, it's about enjoying life to the full.
