Publishers Text

This is the perfect way to reduce the family grocery bill and at the same time produce simple classic food. Over 300 classic recipes that you can't find in modern cookery books such as Baked Eggs, Kedgeree, Steak and Kidney Pudding and Apple Dumplings sit easily alongside the author's love of French and Italian cuisine. Pot-au-feu, Clafoutis, Risotto Milanese and Coffee Granita as well as many other international dishes make their appearance here. Practical information as to the most inexpensive cuts of meat, metric conversions, temperature charts, roasting tables and essential larder ingredients make this book a timely addition to every kitchen.
