ALEX DOESN’T DO FRENCH FANCY
RESTAURATEUR Alex Jackson has a few ideas to keep you sated and happy this summer with his new Provencal-inspired cookbook.
The owner and head chef of Sardine in London has divided his book into seasons with classic French dishes like ratatouille, clafoutis, mussels, pâté, tarts, grilled rabbit and cassoulet. There’s a feast for every season as well as
appetising dishes for the perfect summer dinner party. Sardine: Simple Seasonal
Provencal Cooking is published by Pavilion, priced £25, and the recipes are straightforward to follow.
There are relatively simple dishes like grilled fish and salads as well as meals that require more time and patience like leg of lamb on a string, and salt-baked guinea fowl.
