Hugh’s newest book has an intriguing premise: delicious things you can make with just three main ingredients. Guardian’s food blog is flooded with the recipes just now. Have a look at this one with asparagus, haloumi and new potatoes or this with trout, watercress and spelt. Very nice.
Autumn book contest – The Little Paris Kitchen
If there ever was a twee cooking show, it was The Little Paris Kitchen earlier this year on BBC2. French classics with mixed with Rachel Khoo’s own modern twists. Instant TV classic, I think.
And, as with every self-respecting cookery programme, there’s the book to go with it.
Here’s what A. Burnes had to say about the book:
The recipes are excellent. They are all relatively simple, the ingredients are realistic (none of them either ridiculously expensive or too difficult to find), and there is always some edge to them that gives even the most familiar dishes an unusual touch.
That’s exactly what I loved about the show; if Khoo was able to cook these dishes in her tiny kitchen, I can give them a good try in mine. They were clever, yet there was nothing intimidating about them.
