Sunday lunch is synonymous with relaxing and eating with friends and family and this book ensures that the cook has an enjoyable time too. Clarissa gives you classic and imaginative ways to cook all types of meat (and there's a chapter on fish too), broadening your repertoire and inspiring you to try new creations. She also includes all-important sauces, ideas for accompanying vegetable dishes and an invaluable chapter on how to use up your leftovers (if there are any!) so nothing goes to waste. And Johnny provides essential information on carving so that a beautiful roast isn't turned into a hacked-up travesty. Basic Stuffed Roast Chicken, Beef Wellington and Pheasant with Figs are just a few of the tasty dishes that will have you cooking up a storm every Sunday - or in fact, any time you want to cook something special without too much hassle.
Clarissa Dickson Wright, formerly of 'Two Fat Ladies' fame, has seven cookery books and one Food Anthology to her name. Since then she has starred with Johnny Scott in three series of 'Clarissa and the Countryman' for BBC2 and they have co-authored three books on the series: Clarissa and the Countryman, Sally Forth and Sunday Roast. Johnny Scott is a keen shot and excellent horseman. As a farmer, naturalist and historian he has written for many newspapers and magazines. He studied farming on three continents, was a jackaroo, miner, lumberjack and brakeman in the British bobsleigh team, before returning to farm hefted black-face sheep in southern Scotland. Their two latest collaborations The Game Cookbook and A Greener Life were published to great acclaim by Kyle Cathie. Sunday Roast is a revised and re-photographed edition of the hardback published by Hodder Headline.
