BASIC COOKBOOK

LESLEY PAGETT    Book Number: 86434    Product format: Hardback

Floral clothbound glamorous and heavyweight family cookbook with satin pagemarker and full page colour photographs to make your mouth water. Here are all the basics for soups, salads, light meals and snacks, pasta, rice and noodles, fish and seafood, poultry, meat, sweets and desserts. In today's busy world, many of us have forgotten what basic, nutritious home cooking used to be, prepared from scratch with recipes passed down from generation to generation - dishes that were comforting, delicious and full of goodness. Here is a collection of those versatile and simple recipes you grew up with. Practical and accessible, it also details directions for the novice cook on how to cook rice, scramble eggs, make stock and bake a cake and classic recipes like Pumpkin Soup, Shepherd's Pie, Coleslaw and Cheesecake and delicious curries, stir fries and casseroles. A delicious Corn and Crab Bisque is easily made with a can of cream of chicken soup and a can of creamy sweetcorn, add a can of crab meat and a teaspoon of curry powder. Add a can of red kidney beans to your minestrone, apples and walnuts to your Waldorf Salad, brown sugar to your Barbecued Spare Ribs and a tin of vine leaves, mince and rice to make Dolmades (stuffed vine leaves). A diced avocado will be the basic ingredient of a Guacamole and make your own delicious quiche, Shrimp Toast, Ravioli, Tuna and Rice Bake, or Garlic and Herb Chicken. There must be 300 recipes here plus glossary explaining allspice, ascorbic acid (scientific name for vitamin C), weights and measurements, conversion table and index. 400 glamorous pages, colour photos.
