Following the massive success of River Cafe Cook Book Easy, Ruth Rogers and Rose Gray have created yet another superb book in exactly the same mould. River Cafe Cook Book Easy 2 has been written in the same clear, accessible style and is complimented by vibrant photography and a fresh, striking design. River Cafe Cook Book Easy pioneered a new approach to cooking and eating. Taking account of today's frenetic lifestyles, Ruth and Rose set out to dispel the notion that stylish and healthy food meant spending hours in the kitchen. Now, in their new book, they have gone even further towards taking the hassle out of midweek cooking and weekend entertaining and have made it even easier to create delicious, nutritious yet elegant meals in moments. They offer us a selection of delightfully simple mozzarella recipes, easy-to-assemble salads, perfect pasta, grilled meat and fish recipes, and cakes and puddings for those special occasions that do not rely on hours of slaving in the kitchen but on the wonderful flavours created by the combination of fresh, readily available ingredients. With recipes ranging from Potato and pancetta soup and Tomato, dried porcini and parmesan pasta to Lemon and almond tart and Pannacotta with chocolate, this book will have you planning tomorrow's meals before today's have been digested.
