A Bit of What You Fancy,
by Jo Seagar (Random House, RRP $55):
Jo Seagar has done a good job of finding 130 recipes that help inspire tasty dishes.
You do not have to flick far to find recipes – balsamic roasties, slow-roasted pork belly with lemon and fennel seed crackling, easy strawberry cheesecake in a glass – to set the tastebuds tingling.
She has designed the book for good cooks looking for inspiration and learners who want the recipes to turn out just like the photograph. It is uncomplicated food made easy. All the recipes have their own page – after all, there is nothing worse trying to flick between pages while cooking.
She has stayed true to her philosophy of minimum effort for maximum effect – something that the home cook should be able to appreciate.
I am sure the salted caramel slice will become a firm family favourite, along with several other dishes in the book.
