River Cottage Every Day
By

Rating
Putting food on the table for the family quickly and economically doesn't mean you have to compromise on quality. This book shows how Hugh's approach to food can be adapted to suit any growing, working family, or busy young singles and couples for that matter. Breakfast, baking, lunchboxes, quick suppers, healthy snacks, eating on the move and weekend cooking for the week ahead - all these, and more, are covered in River Cottage Every Day. As Hugh says: 'I make no prior assumptions about where you shop, what you may or may not know about growing vegetables or keeping livestock, whether you can tell the difference between a swede and turnip, or know what to do with a belly of pork and a breast of lamb. Instead, I'll show you easy and confidence-inspiring ways with cuts of meat, types of fish and other ingredients you may not have tried before. And I'll offer you new approaches that I hope will breathe new life to familiar staples, like rice, spuds, beans, and your daily bread. Above all, I intend to tempt you irresistibly towards a better life with food, with a whole raft of recipes that I think you will love. I hope some of them will become your absolute favourites, and the favourites of your dear friends and beloved family. I hope that the dishes you like best will infiltrate and influence your cooking, giving you increased confidence and fresh ideas. In short, I hope that before long, cooking simple and delicious food from the best seasonal ingredients becomes second nature and first priority for you, not just once in a while, but every day.'

Reviews

"A crowd-pleaser. . . . The past few years have delivered a library's worth of 'quick-easy-thrifty' cookbooks. Global economic crisis will do that, and from Britain, where pulling your socks up in the face of austerity is a matter of patriotic pride, we have new books in this vein by Jamie Oliver, Nigella Lawson, and even the late Elizabeth David. A surprising one is "River Cottage Every Day," an accessible collection of recipes from the farmer-cook Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. Compare, for instance, Fearnley-Whittingstall's "River Cottage Meat Book," which opens with a photo essay depicting the slaughter, skinning, and sawing in half of a cow. "River Cottage Every Day," by contrast, begins with a photo of the author scarfing honey-smeared bread. . . . Fearnley-Whittingstall is, at heart, a philosopher, and these new recipes make a case for approaching daily cooking with intention--or, as he puts it, finding 'things to savor and share that don't just fill up, but make us feel good." "I would love to cook my way through this book one delicious meal at a time. The range of recipes, from simple to more complicated, makes it a great book for new cooks, but there's also plenty here for seasoned cooks, too." --TheKitchn, 6/22/11 "the food is ace" --NYTimes.com, Summer Cookbook Roundup, 6/2/11 "This book's overarching theme of fresh, local seasonal foods everyday for everyone comes naturally, with Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's charming voice leading the way. Whether you incorporate a few of his recipes into your repertoire or cook from it every day, it will go a long way towards keeping you on a good food track." --Devour The Blog, Cooking Channel, 3/29/11 "The perfect book for anyone looking for new recipes for feeding their family." --The Family Kitchen blog, Babble.com, 3/28/11 "A crowd-pleaser. . . .
