Tara’s staff pick for December: “Comfort eating at its very finest, and since it’s Nigel Slater, I know the writing is going to be delicious too. Fingers crossed I’ll find this in my stocking on Christmas morning!”
The second in a pair of fast, season-led vegetable books from beloved author and cook Nigel Slater.
Greenfeast has over 110 gently sustaining recipes from milk, mushrooms and rice – as comforting as a cashmere blanket – big soups like tahini, sesame and butternut and crumbles made with leeks, tomato and pecorino. With puddings like ginger cake, cardamom and maple syrup, these spirit-lifting recipes are a varied and glorious celebration of simple, plant-based cooking.
Highlights include: Simple filo pastry filled with cheese and greens, a savoury tart of shallots, apples and Parmesan, soothing polenta with garlic and mushrooms, fiery udon noodles with tomato and chillies, creamy pudding rice with rosewater and apricots
