The Simple Things - - MARCH THINGS -

“What do you cook for the peo­ple you love?” was the ques­tion posed by Wil­liam Sitwell, the ed­i­tor of Waitrose’s mag­a­zine and this col­lec­tion of recipes, to 100 Bri­tish chefs, cooks, bak­ers and food he­roes. The re­sult is a cel­e­bra­tion of all that is bril­liant about Bri­tish cook­ing, and its melt­ing pot of in­flu­ences. Recipes from bee­keep­ers and lo­cal bak­ers sit along­side con­tri­bu­tions from Miche­lin­starred chefs*, in­clud­ing Nigella, Jamie and Ray­mond, who serve up tasty de­lights in­clud­ing a break­fast of net­tles on toast with pol­lack, wild gar­lic and poached egg, a lunch of Saigon Fresh Sum­mer Rolls and a lip-smack­ing dinner of risotto with cour­gette and crab. (Nour­ish Books) * Feed fur­ther cu­rios­ity for culi­nary lists with Jenny Lin­ford’s The Chef’s Li­brary ( Abrams), which show­cases the favourite cook­books of 70 chefs.
