In this day and age, fresh food is available to us year round. But according to Adrian Richardson, just because it’s there doesn’t mean we should eat it! If we pay attention to seasonal produce, we’re guaranteed a tastier, more satisfying meal – especially if it’s home-made.
Winter is a time for soups and warming puddings. Spring is the season of fresh fruit and vegetables, and summer is the domain of barbecues, pizzas and canapés. And then there’s autumn, set aside for preserving and curing. In Adrian Richardson’s The Good Life
, you’ll experience a year of cooking and eating with family and friends, where the seasons decide what ends up on your table – and you’ll never be short on ideas.
The Good Life
embodies the joy of creating food for yourself, from growing your own herbs and vegetables to crafting cheese, sauces and breads from scratch, or perhaps even trying your hand at jams and preserves. Richardson’s beautiful cookbook will take you back to your culinary roots, helping you to reconnect with the feel of hands-on, basic cooking. But for those of you who appreciate a challenge, there’s step-by-step master classes included for more technical tasks, such as making focaccia and sausages.
Summer, autumn, winter or spring – whatever the time of year, The Good Life
will help you create wholesome, honest food for family and friends.
