Dinner & Party

Gatherings. Suppers. Feasts.

By Rose Prince

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

From Telegraph journalist, Rose Prince comes the only book you'll ever need for effortless, elegant entertaining.

"Come Over..."

Whether you're a beginner looking for simple, impressive recipes to feed friends and family, or a seasoned host hoping to inject your repertoire with stylish, interesting ideas, you'll find all you need in Dinner & Party.

Rose's stance on entertaining is that the cook shouldn't be banished to the kitchen; cooking for guests needn't be fussy or hard to juggle, but instead made up of dishes - some classics, some novel - that can be prepared in advance, dressed up to impress last minute and enjoyed by everyone. Practicality is central to a book updating the etiquette for entertaining in our times.

With this in mind, Part 1: Dinner showcases easy options for every course, all alongside thoughtful advice about how to source ingredients, when to begin preparation and how to serve. Meanwhile, Part 2: Party provides tried and tested catering ideas for larger groups, from indoor picnics, to standing parties and Christmas dinners.

With sample menus, including an innovative guide to putting the right dishes together through the seasons, this is the friendly, practical guide to making entertaining easy in the 21st century, bringing everyone together.

Along with many others I'm really bad at working out how much to cook when I'm catering for more than 10 people. Rose Prince offers dinner menus for fewer than that number but, especially in the run-up to Christmas, this book will prove its worth for the party menus that cater from anything from 20 to 60 guests. Prince's food is real and achievable; she has her own style that feels very English, although she takes ingredients and influences from all over the world. — Diana Henry, DAILY TELEGRAPH
Beautiful, simple and practical recipes so you may enjoy one of the great pleasures of life: cooking for friends and family. — Raymond Blanc

The Tuscan Year

Elizabeth Romer
Authors:
Elizabeth Romer

In 1972 Elizabeth Romer moved to a farmhouse in Tuscany, where she discovered a life moulded by the past and tasted the simple, sublime flavours of traditional Italian cooking for the first time. Here, she introduces the Cerotti family who farm one section of the valley, and vividly describes, month by month, the Tuscan year. From January's prosciutto and salame, to cheese-making in March, to threshing the corn in high summer, to the game and chanterelles of autumn, and the chestnut woods of November and December. In the heart of the Cerotti household wonderful meals are prepared using fresh and simple ingredients, governed by the rhythms of the changing seasons. Elizabeth Romer presents the fare for high days and holidays as well as every day, from fresh garlic and wild herbs to fried flowers and carnival cakes. This magical book reveals the secrets of an ancient way of life and cuisine, with dozens of delicious recipes to bring the flavour of Tuscany to any kitchen.

Influenced by the rhythms of the land he farms, he renames and redefines the seasons into three growing groups and shares creative recipes, preserving techniques and ideas on using these 'root' ingredients all year round.

Blackwing

Ed McDonald
Authors:
Ed McDonald

The republic faces annihilation, despite the vigilance of Galharrow's Blackwings. When a raven tattoo rips itself from his arm to deliver a desperate message, Galharrow and a mysterious noblewoman must investigate a long dead sorcerer's legacy. But there is a conspiracy within the citadel: traitors, flesh-eaters and the ghosts of the wastelands seek to destroy them, but if they cannot solve the ancient wizard's paradox, the Deep Kings will walk the earth again, and all will be lost.The war with the Eastern Empire ended in stalemate some eighty years ago, thanks to Nall's 'Engine', a wizard-crafted weapon so powerful even the Deep Kings feared it. The strike of the Engine created the Misery - a wasteland full of ghosts and corrupted magic that now forms a No Mans Land along the frontier. But when Galharrow investigates a frontier fortress, he discovers complacency bordering on treason: then the walls are stormed, and the Engine fails to launch. Galharrow only escapes because of the preternatural magical power of the noblewoman he was supposed to be protecting. Together, they race to the capital to unmask the traitors and restore the republic's defences. Far across the Misery a vast army is on the move, as the Empire prepares to call the republic's bluff.Blackwing is a gritty epic fantasy for fans of Mark Lawrence, Scott Lynch and Daniel Polansky.

"Don't be afraid of offal. Some of the greatest of all French classics involve organ meats such as brains and sweetbreads." - Michel Roux Jr Celebrated chef Michel Roux Jr passionately believes that we are missing out. At a time when food shortage is a global concern, health fears over processed meat are making headlines and the cost of living is higher than ever, he can't understand our reluctance to utilise every part of an animal's carcass. Brains, organs, intestines, hooves - items that are traditionally viewed with distaste in our society - are an integral part of French and world cuisine. With this book, the two-star Michelin chef hopes to change the way we think about offal and demonstrate that, with a little time and effort, it can be used to produce enticing and delicious food to impress friends and feed families. The book will contain recipes ranging from the simple sweetbreads Michel's mother fed him as a child, to the more adventurous dishes in the style served at his award-winning restaurants. Dishes range from La Salade Aveyronnaise (Warm salad with sweetbreads and Roquefort) or Soupe aux abattis (Giblet soup), to Cervelle de veau zingara (Calves' brains with zingara) or Langue de boefu au persil et cares (Salted ox tongue with caper parsley sauce).
