Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Go-with-anything cake

    • Astrid5555 on November 20, 2016

      Made this for a gluten-intolerant friend and she really loved it. While the end result is a really nice sticky, dense and sweet cake, the process of making it is quite strenuous. You first make a stiff paste by beating egg yolks with sugar and then folding in the ground almonds. You are then inctructed to fold the beaten egg whites into the very stiff paste with a metal spoon. There is no chance this can be done by hand. I had to use an electric whisk to be able to mix anything together. In the end it worked but in the process you lose all the air you have whisked in before.

  • Chocolate marmalade slump cake

    • PatriciaScarpin on January 13, 2014

      Delicious, perfect for dessert, not too sweet, with a great chocolate flavor. I lined only the bottom of the pan with baking paper and it turned out fine.

  • Spiced cherry ice cream

    • Frenchfoodie on July 19, 2018

      This is so good. As the author says, the spices just make it taste more cherryish. A hit.

  • Beetroot risotto with goat's cheese

    • PatriciaScarpin on July 17, 2012

      This is absolutely delicious - the tangy cheese compliments the sweetness of the beets perfectly. I loved it.

  • Leek and mascarpone risotto

    • Varundel on April 05, 2015

      A simple-flavoured, very comforting supper dish. Used a homemade veg stock and an added parmesan rind for extra flavour.

  • Roast pork belly with juniper and apples

    • Melanie on August 22, 2015

      Really enjoyed this dish. Liked the baked apples, an easy alternative to making apple sauce.

  • Spaghetti with courgettes, basil and lemon

    • Astrid5555 on June 15, 2016

      Nice recipe to have on hand for the coming zucchini season. Really like the lemon, zucchini, basil combination!

  • Cream cheese, anchoiade and basil on toast

    • Varundel on April 19, 2015

      Strong gutsy flavours - not for the faint-hearted but great if you like anchovies and garlic!

  • Five-spice butternut soup

    • Melanie on August 16, 2015

      Quick and tasty. Keep lid on saucepan to speed up process when pumpkin is cooking. The five spice was a nice touch and not overpowering.

  • Savoy cabbage and white bean soup

    • Melanie on August 21, 2015

      This was a hit in our house. Full of flavour and the soup still has some bite, not too mushy. Used kale instead of Savoy cabbage.

Simple, delicious, unfussy -- Sunday Times resident food writer Lucas Hollweg offers good food for real people. Good Things to Eat is just that: great food that focuses on the ever-popular ingredients and types of recipes that home cooks turn to again and again; the dishes that make everyone go 'yum!' From risottos, stews, gratins and things on toast to lamb, fruit, pasta, pies, squashes and puds, Lucas opens up scrumptious new possibilities for the kinds of flavours people know and love. Lucas weaves together his recipes with personal memories, inspiration, gentle advice and the odd joke. His warm, unhurried writing and layman's understanding of what needs explaining and what doesn't, plus his usage of ingredients that people can easily get hold of, ensure he will inspire everyone to make uncomplicated, tasty food -- no matter how practised they are in the kitchen. At long last, here is the book his fans have been waiting for. Recipes include: Sea bream with fennel and orange Chicken schnitzel with lemon and thyme Aubergine, courgette and basil gratin Cod with lentils, rocket and salsa verde A bowl of roast quails with spiced yogurt Spiced rack of lamb with butterbean mash Peach, prosciutto and mozzarella salad Veal chops with Roquefort and thyme butter Pot-roast chicken and chicory Beef stew with cinnamon and prunes Raspberry and mint sorbet Autumn mess with blackberries Banana and black pepper tarte tatin A go-with-anything cake (and things to go with it) The 123 cocktail
