…smaller than ‘the Mag’, but a handy companion to have around. Here we find a touch of the traditional with ‘Crispy crackling stuffed roast pork with roasted apples’, classics such as ‘Moussaka’, & ‘Cauliflower gratin’ and some refreshing tweaks on old favourites such as ‘Coronation prawn and mango cocktail’, ’Dorset apple cake’ or ‘Fish pie with prawns and cheesy leek mash topping’. delicious. MAGAZINE: FOOD FOR FRIENDS HarperCollins Publishers/2009 Edited by DEBBIE MAJOR Magazine editor : MATTHEW DRENNAN From the introduction: ️ ‘…great main courses for those who love meat, fish and vegetarian meals and a special chapter dedicated to side dishes and salads, which can be a meal in themselves…’ Measuring in around 13.25 cm x 16.75 cm, the colourful paperback cover opens to 192 shiny pages covering recipes from ‘delicious. MAGAZINE’. Each recipe usefully has a full colour, accompanying illustration so you know what you are aiming for. The chunky little book is split over main chapters: starters and small bites comfort food al fresco fare ️ smart food for special occasions on the side delicious desserts …sandwiched between an introduction & conversion tables at the front and a useful handful of ‘menu planner’ ideas & an alphabetical index at the back…all finished off with a half page of picture/recipe acknowledgements. Each chapter has an appealing and colourful double-page spread opening, then it is straight into the recipes, all also on 2-page spreads with a full-page illustration on the right hand side. Each recipe is on the left hand page with the title, followed by a relevant opening note, the number of servings, guide times, the full list of ingredients and a clearly numbered method. Variations, tweaks or a ‘★delicious tip’, if applicable, are towards the bottom of the page. A small taste of some of the other recipes contained within: ※ Spiced prawn poppadoms ※ Thai fish cakes on lemongrass sticks ※ Sesame yoghurt dip with flatbreads ※ Smoked salmon, cream cheese and watercress rolls ※ Kabocha squash soup with pumpkin seed pesto ※ Pea, lettuce and tarragon soup ※ Creamy chicken, chive and mustard gratin ※ Braised lamb shanks ※ Roots, ham and caramelised onion pie ※ Roasted Mediterranean vegetable lasagne ※ Indonesian beef rendang ※ Normandy pork with cider ※ Maple syrup and mustard gammon with creamy gratin ※ Braised beef and winter vegetable stew ※ Roll-your-own chilli steak fajitas ※ Pork and chorizo kebabs ※ Barbecued leg of lamb with tomato and mint salsa ※ Best-ever Tandoori chicken ※ Greek beef burger with beetroot relish ※ Prawn and avocado quinoa salad ※ Cumberland sausage rings with sweet tomato relish ※ Grilled sea bass on garlic mash with lemon & chive butter sauce ※ Quails with pomegranate ※ Basil and lime salmon ※ Pan-fried duck breasts with sour cranberry sauce ※ Risotto cakes ※ Wild mushroom, mascarpone and tarragon torte ※ Zesty bulgur wheat Tabbouleh ※ Five-spice coleslaw ※ Orange and watercress salad ※ Griddled vegetables and feta couscous ※ Vanilla bean and white chocolate panna cotta ※ Double espresso tart ※ Caramel orange pavlovas ※ Pears in quince syrup ※ Caramelised pecan tart Cheat a little, if time is short, e.g. on ‘Feta and slow-roasted tomato salad’, with one of those aforementioned ‘★delicious tips’: …’look out for semi-dried, ‘mi-cuit’ or SunBlush tomatoes in your local supermarket or deli instead of the slow-roasted tomatoes’. In my case, the ‘al fresco’ chapter is open today for a ‘Welcome September’ fest later, and, the weather is looking great (at the time of writing) for my duo of: ‘Sweet and sour prawns with lime’ & ‘Sparkling summer fruit jellies’ The book can be a little reluctant to stay open at the chosen page in some areas but nothing a book stand/clip can’t sort, in my experience.
