About this deal

Tom Parker Bowles gives us more than 140 of his kitchen staples; the dishes he cooks day in, day out. It begged for something green and fresh, so garnished with chopped cilantro and served with lime wedges - both excellent improvements. Now, with this deeply scrumptious book, he reveals how talented he is at the first bit: the cooking.

He isn’t shy about promoting suppliers he likes, or other cooks’ books either, so there’s some really useful references tucked into the text. Tireless in pursuit of a good dinner, Tom Parker Bowles has eaten some of the best food in the world – and then recreated his favourite dishes in his own kitchen.While I wouldn't go that far (see above recipe reviews), I will say that we've eaten extremely well over the past month. I found discussions on Chowhound where folks on the upper east side of Manhattan were unable to local smoked haddock, the central feature of his fish pie. I was particularly interested in Tom's commentary on the debate about the origin of 'Sticky Toffee Pudding', because coming from Cumbria I had only ever heard the Ulswater version of the story. His easy culinary style and winning writing will delight fans of his fellow Englishman Simon Hopkinson's Roast Chicken and Other Stories. The From far-flung shores chapter includes dishes inspired by Tom’s travels, such as ceviche, or Lime marinated prawns with avocado and there's a chapter on Cooking for children too.

Let’s Eat is the published version, a great, casual cookbook, full of things you’d like to eat, some familiar, others of exotic provenance, a few a potent blend of the two. The book is filled with just the sort of food I adore at any time of the year: warm and mushy comfort foods, especially those that simmer for hours. This book delivers on both those levels – there are delightful snippets of information woven into these recipes, making them just lovely to read. I think, often, good solid recipes that ACTUALLY WORK get lost in the fashion and fluffery of food writing. Let's Eat Meat shows us how to enjoy meat, whether it is a prime cut or a scrap of meat used in a way that is thrifty but never mean.The combination of all these things serves to make this a much more engaging recipe book than most, despite the fact that not every recipe is accompanied by a photograph (although most are). The From far-flung shores chapter includes dishes inspired by Tom’s travels, such as ceviche, or Lime marinated prawns with avocado and there's a chapter on Cooking for children too. To access your ebook(s) after purchasing, you can download the free Glose app or read instantly on your browser by logging into Glose. Packed with photographs, Let's Eat is an irresistible hotchpotch of delicious recipes; a trusty cookbook for foodies and families alike.

They come from all corners of the world, including his childhood kitchen, garnered from his travels, noted down on scraps of paper, deciphered later at home and written up into ‘a battered old leather recipe book, dark blue and stained with fat, ketchup and chilli sauce. Despite the fact that I don’t eat meat (and Tom has some amazing meat based dishes here – from grouse to oxtail) I found plenty that I intend to try out for myself: ‘Lemon Risotto’, ‘Hot Buttered Crab’, ‘Trifle’, ‘Shrimp Broth’ etc. How difficult it is the navigate these recipes (the reference section at the back saved me, or I’d have plugged this thing so full of bookmarks it would have looked like a revision guide). Tireless in pursuit of a good dinner, Tom Parker Bowles has eaten some of the best food in the world - and then recreated his favourite dishes in his own kitchen. I’ve used this book so many times (triple cooked chips: amazing, griddled lamb with cucumber raita: scrummy…) I completely forgot to review it, so apologies for lateness – it was actually published back in June.This is a great recipe book, but pretty far from traditional in terms of its content and layout, with chapter titles like ‘Comfort Food’ and ‘Slow and Low’. Join our special guest, Tom Parker Bowles, for a lively talk followed by a three-course dinner in Café Modern celebrating classic British cuisine.

I doubled the onions and mushrooms and was generous with the hot sauce and mustard, in keeping with my "more = better" stew rule. Guy Chambers performed an impromptu set on the piano, The Duchess of Cornwall stopped by to support her son by suggesting he didn't 'make another sweaty speech'. Divided into playful sections like “Quick Fixes” and “Slow and Low”, from his mum (aka the Duchess of Cornwall)’s heavenly take on roast chicken to a fiery Asian noodle soup, it’s evident that Parker Bowles is an enthusiastic everyday gourmand—and his eagerness is infectious. this is not only a lovely book to keep for yourself, but you can genuinely give this as the perfect gift to anyone, especially someone who thinks they have everyting.

There's so many small gems of information in this book, that there's something here to spark everyone's interest, even a reluctant cook's! In continuous publication since 1885 and widely respected as England's longest running weekly magazine for women, The Lady is celebrated both for the quality of its editorial pages and its classified advertisements. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH). He's as over the moon for simple food€”a perfectly melting bacon, egg and cheese sandwich, or a rich tomato soup€”as he is for the exotic, the fiery hot, and the elegant. This is more than a simple collection of recipes however, there are snippets of memoir, pop culture food references and pocket histories of recipes or ingredients as well.
