People often discard British food as boring and uninspiring. "Classic British Cookbook" illustrates how elegant, enticing and flavourful it can be. There are quintessential classics, such as Beef Wellington and Irish Stew, but also healthy dishes like Roast Salmon with Watercress Sauce and Scallops on Pea Puree. Creative dishes for our home-grown vegetables - Beetroot and Horseradish Gratin - or twists on old favourites - Tart of Black Pudding, Smoked Bacon and Caramalised Onion instead of the usual English breakfast - make this a truly inspirational and exciting cookbook. And don't forget the good old tea-time treats of freshly baked Scones and Parkin and delightful puddings and desserts. There are recipes for every occasion, and for every course. British food is not only comforting, but nutritious and appetising, and this cookbook ensures that it is not forgotten.
