Slow Cooking is an irresistible collection of simple, delicious dishes to take your time over.

Chef James Martin shows how cooking slowly is the perfect way to draw out flavours and textures, enabling you to produce mouthwatering dishes with minimum effort. James’s temptingly easy recipes make it simple to cook fabulous food for family and friends. Every James Martin recipe includes an hour or more of cooking or marinating time and no lastminute preparation – so let your oven or slow cooker do the work while you get on with other things.

The recipes range from family favourites such as soups, roasts and one-pots, to more unexpected and adventurous dishes that embrace the slow philosophy, such as Fresh mackerel pickled with oil, vinegar and whole spices or Fillet of beef wrapped in clingfilm and slowly roasted until cooked perfectly to medium rare.

Slow Cooking shows how, by preparing a few good-quality ingredients, and cooking or marinating them slowly for a least an hour, everyone can produce showstopping dishes with very little fuss.

My Kitchen’ is the brand new collection of James Martin’s favourite seasonal recipes. As the face of British food, James knows how to cook for an audience. But what happens when the cameras are turned off and it’s time to feed himself and his friends? Here he shares the recipes that see him through the year, with plenty of easy and irresistible ideas for fantastic food, even when there’s no occasion.

James firmly believes that fresh, local ingredients are always the best, and he often uses his own home-grown fruit and veg in his everyday cooking. The recipes are organised by the seasons and James also includes ideas for using different cuts of meat, harking back to an era of ‘waste not, want not’. Determined to prove that game, such as grouse, rabbit and venison, is not only affordable but also very delicious, he finds versatile ways to turn these meats into mouth-watering dishes that everyone will love.

With over 100 no-nonsense recipes from James’s personal repertoire, all explained in his straightforward and easy-to-follow manner, this is a book which cannot fail to inspire healthy, hearty home-cooked food.

In Easy British Food James introduces the kind of easy-to-prepare versions of family favourites that he’s become famous for – dishes such as cottage pie, Cornish pasties and treacle tart.

Alongside these he brings us his recipes for some of the simplest to prepare British classics, including roast beef, poached salmon, and gooseberry fool.

Easy British Food is packed with traditional roasts, pies, stews and fries. You’ll find all the simplest national favourites – from liver with bacon and onions to home-made Cumberland sausages, from beef and black sheep pie to Welsh rarebit, from jam roly poly to raspberry pavlova.
