Quilts - A Beautiful History
Quick, Quick Slow: Great Slow Recipes Matched With Super-fast Dishes
By Allegra McEvedy
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.
