In these uncertain economic times, we're all cutting back, nesting, and making do with less. Now Diana Henry, award- winning author who shared the joy of winter comfort food in Roast Figs, Sugar Snow and the road to effortless every day meals in Pure Simple Cooking, shows us how to spend less, waste less, eat plenty and even better than before. With her deft hand at creating truly flavorful, accessible recipes, she assures us that adapting to the times doesn't mean compromising flavor, quality, or quantity. It comes down to matter of planning, shopping well, and making the most out of leftovers. PLENTY presents 300 truly satisfying, easy-to-make recipes your family will enjoy, proving without a doubt that less can be more; it can be the most; it can be great!
PLENTY'S recipes, inspired from around the globe, show the variety of great food you can make without spending a fortune. With what is left from a simple Roast Chicken, you can make a fabulous Greek Chicken, Pumpkin, Feta & Filo Pie. Turn a bumper crop of tomatoes and basil into a luscious Tomato and Basil Tart. And thanks to a special section on less expensive cuts of meat, you'll soon be creating new family favorites from lamb shoulder, pork belly, and skirt steak, among others.
The book also advocates protecting our planet's resources. You'll learn to cook with respect, using readily available, abundant ingredients, such as cooking with Mackerel, the most sustainable fish, or using ingredients found in the wild, such as raspberries and elderberries.
With PLENTY, you will see that less is more.
