James Martin – Easy British Food

Price: £17.99

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. But with these are popular new dishes too: pizza margherita, lamb curry, garlic pesto, pea and salmon risotto and creme brulee, which are all made easy in this delicious collection. James is perhaps best loved for his teatime cakes and bakes, and in this book he doesn’t disappoint.

His irresistible recipes include parkin, shortbread, Madeira cake, doughnuts and carrot cake. Whatever the occasion, Easy British Food has the perfect dish.
