Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Braised Bibb lettuces with butter and spring onions

    • veronicafrance on January 09, 2012

      We had this as a side dish with beef stroganoff; it was delicious and went really well with it. Very easy to do as well. Note, in the UK edition it's called Braised Little Gem lettuces with butter and spring onions (p 123 in my copy). I've had this book a while and this is the first recipe I've cooked from it -- thanks EYB!

  • Raspberry clafoutis

    • veronicafrance on February 21, 2014

      This was OK, but I don't think raspberries really work in a clafoutis. It took much longer than advertised to cook, but that might be because my frozen raspberries weren't as thawed as they might have been. Basically, tart fruit that exudes less juice is better in clafoutis.

There is a section on apples with a perfect apple tart, a section on curry with Constance Spry's original Coronation chicken salad dressing and a section on duck with Braised duck with peas and the classic Roast duck and apple sauce.

"Roast Chicken and Other Stories" was voted the most useful cookbook of all time by "Waitrose Food Illustrated" and also won the Andre Simon and Glenfiddich awards. "Second Helpings of Roast Chicken" will provide new inspiration the many fans of Simon Hopkinson's sensible, practical, creative approach to cooking and love of good food, prepared to please rather than simply impress.
