Scrumptious Food for Family and Friends by Jane-Anne Hobbs

Scrumptious Food for Family and Friends by Jane-Anne Hobbs

"At a time when most cookbooks focus on meals in minutes and shortcuts to feeding the family, this title is both refreshing and reassuring: there are young food writers out there who are spreading the word, along with plenty of butter, that the creation of memorable meals requires time, basic skills and enthusiasm.

Among the “flourish of trumpets”, as she describes the starters, are trendy smoked venison with cream cheese and horseradish, topped with pomegranate syrup and seeds, followed by old-fashioned tuna paté updated with green peppercorns and white anchovy fillets. Hobbs also revives those 70s salads that contain a wealth of ingredients, as in her herbed rice salad with feta, walnuts and broccoli crumbs."

About the book:

Creating memorable dishes for family and friends is one of life’s great pleasures: how better to celebrate life and love than to gather at a happy table laden with scrumptious home-cooked food?

You don’t need to be an expert cook to produce heart-warming dishes that sing with flavour – all that’s required is passion, patience and smart preparation well in advance. Jane-Anne Hobbs has created over 90 original, triple-tested recipes designed to take the fuss out of home entertaining and bring smiles to the faces of the people you love.
