Providing first aid to every food craving, the author of The Borough Market Cookbook serves up a tantalising selection of exciting recipes, ingeniously arranged by their flavour profiles, from fresh and fragrant to cheesy and creamy.
6 Flavour Profiles. Over 100 recipes. Every craving covered.
Why do we choose to cook the things we do, when we do? Most of the time, it is simply so we can eat what we really fancy; a subconscious response to a constantly fluctuating state of mind and appetite that's influenced by mood, season, weather, memory, occasion, outside events and internal feelings.
Ed Smith helps his readers home in on their cravings (whatever the reason for them) by organising his recipes within six cleverly conceived flavour profiles: fresh and fragrant chilli and heat tart and sour curried and spiced rich and savoury; and (best of all?) cheesy and creamy. There's also a directory of alternative cravings at the back, providing additional ways in. All bases are covered, from snacks through sides, to main courses and puddings.
Think of fermented and fresh tomato salad with feta for when both sun and cook are already smiling; or lamb chops with cacio e pepe white beans if in need of a re-set; the likes of 'nduja spatchcock chicken, should a tickle of chilli be in order; or curried brisket noodles to meet spice needs. Whether we want snap and crunch or velvet softness, sharp citrus or warming aromatics, or just something involving bubbling, molten cheese, Crave presents a fresh take on seasonal cookery, but goes beyond that too - acknowledging core instincts and base itches, and so delivering recipes you'll want to make every day of the week, whatever the weather or mood.
