Greenfeast - Autumn, Winter (Hardback)Nigel Slater (author)
The second half of Slater’s follow-up to the seminal Eat, this sumptuous volume crafts quick and easy vegetarian recipes from judiciously chosen seasonal ingredients. Lucidly written, accessibly structured and handsomely presented, Greenfeast is Slater at his culinary best.
'Much of my weekday eating contains neither meat nor fish ... It is simply the way my eating has grown to be over the last few years.'
From the start of autumn, we crave food that nourishes, food that sets us up for going out in the cold and wet. 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

'There's a zen-like calm reading Greenfeast, the latest from Nigel Slater. Perhaps it's the simple, yet graceful way he describes a dish: greens, coconut curry is "vibrant, verdant". Or the brushstrokes by artist Tom Kemp that punctuate pages throughout the book. Or simply that Slater writes so beautifully about how he - like so many of us - is eating less meat. But ultimately it's the recipes. I dare you to open the book at any page and not say to yourself, "Yes, I'd fancy that for dinner tonight"' Independent
