A BIT OF WHAT YOU FANCY
By Jo Seagar, Random House, $55
Need some nibbles for a party? What about trying crispy fried chickpeas with smoked paprika, accompanied by garlic oil crostini with spinach, coriander and lime dip, and very simple but effective breadsticks with prosciutto and rocket? Can’t decide what to make for dinner? Why not try going retro with chicken Kiev? Staying true to her philosophy of maximum effect for minimum effort, Jo has created a number of modern classics, as well as giving a refreshing twist to some of those recipes we all know and love. Many of the recipes in A Bit of What You Fancy are inspired by summer. 130 new recipes that will inspire you to create gorgeous dishes for all of your friends and family no matter whether it’s for a quick mid-week dinner, a relaxed weekend meal or a special occasion.
