So far we have made the chick pea puree, which is a garlicky delight and takes about three minutes to make. We have also made the Huevos Rancheros and eaten its component parts (fresh salsa, home made guacamole with a kick, and cumin fried black beans), both as part of the dish and separately in other things, because they are so versatile. We have also made the palmier biscuits, which were dead easy to whip up, and made use of the puff pastry my son put in the kitchen drawer instead of the freezer.
I would say that we cook Huevos Rancheros fairly frequently, but this recipe is slightly different from the way we usually do it, which is why I tried it. The family agreed hands down this was the best version they have tasted.
Tonight we are having the baked chicken breasts and the pea and asparagus risotto, before making some cookies for my husband to take to work tomorrow. We are all looking forward to dinner.
The recipes are simple and easy to follow. Sasha is very relaxed about the recipes, indicating where you can switch ingredients to suit tastes, which is something I have to do a lot of in our house anyway, and I like the freedom of being able to tweak a bit, and being encouraged by the author to do it.
The book is nicely set out and arranged into useful sections. The production quality, as I would expect with a Quadrille publication is high, and the pictures are appealing, and not too arty, so you can actually see what you're working towards if you've never made a dish before.
I have a feeling this book will get used and used in our house as a pratical, every day cookery book that keeps on offering up deliciously simple meals that work without fail.
There's an excellent selection of vegetarian recipes interspersed with the carnivorous ones and the recipe book is laid out in a very intuitive, easy to read format with sandwiches grouped together, burgers grouped together and sections for hot weather food and cold weather food.
The fried gnocchi recipe has become an instant weeknight staple (and as she says, is an excellent hangover cure.) I've also made the mushroom lasagne with great success and look forward to trying the other recipes.
