Inspired by the foxtrot, this new book from chef Allegra McEvedy brings together a variety of tempos and cooking styles to create a unique collection of recipes all based around the rhythm of Quick-Quick-Slow. Each Slow involves an initial input of kitchen time, then the canny cook walks away and lets nature take its course, only returning to whip up the Quicks and make any necessary finishing touches to the long-loved slow. The Slow recipes are about more than low and slow stews bubbling away: they explore how time not only affects flavour and texture but allows for magic to happen. Allegra draws on pickling, proving, curing, pressing, marinating, infusing and preserving as inspiration for the time-takers that are at the heart of each triumvirate. With the slow element underway, Allegra matches each one with a couple of eye-catching Quicks: speedy dishes that can be created in minutes, designed and crafted to complement, and in some cases complete, the accompanying Slow. And it's this change of tempo within each threesome of Quick Quick Slow that keeps the energy and pace of first the book and then the food that comes out of it both varied and exciting. There are simple suppers, light lunches, plenty of face-free veggie recipes and family feasts; stylish recipes for when you have guests to impress, and fun, flavoursome kid-friendly meals too. With Szechuan Treacle Crusted Pork Belly, Jamaican Oxtail Stew, and Dark & Stormy Gingerbread with Angostura Honeycomb, Allegra's food foxtrot has the right moves for everyone.

Cook Slow

Dean Edwards
Authors:
Dean Edwards

'There is a time and a place for all types of cooking, but it was the process of slow cooking that really got my creative juices flowing and reinvigorated my passion for food. Since the day I started to cook, it wasn't just the end result that I loved, it was the process. The chopping, stirring, simmering and tasting along the way, makes the experience...I believe that cooking food slowly is the ideal method for transforming basic ingredients into something very special.' - Dean EdwardsCook Slow features 90 delicious slow cooker recipes, all with conventional oven options, which will make you fall back in love with food again. Dean's fresh approach allows you to fit the enjoyment of planning, preparing and creating a meal into a busy life.

Skinny Salads

Kathryn Bruton
Authors:
Kathryn Bruton

Salads are perfect for big-flavour meals, but pre-made ones are often covered with sugary dressings and full of preservatives for extended shelf life, so Kathryn Bruton has ramped up the health-factor with her range of skinny salads to suit everyone, whether they want something warming and comforting, refreshing and revitalising or all-out wow. Chapters cover Gloriously Green, Comfort, Simple, Classics, Show-Off and Fruit Salads, and include gluten and dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan recipes. Plus there's a section with extra-good-for-you dressings, condiments and pickles. From warming Kofta Salad, a `Wind me Down' Winter's Evening Salad and tasty Spiced Roasted Plum Salad to a twist on the classic, Caesar Salad with Purple Kale, Kathryn minimises the use of sugary, heavy dressings and bland leaves and brings fresh, nutrient-packed ingredients. Each salad is less than 300 calories per portion but still jam-packed with flavour.
