Now here's a treat. Rose Prince has sent me a copy of her new cookbook and it looks glorious.
Beautiful, simple and practical recipes so you may enjoy one of the great pleasures of life: cooking for friends and family.
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.
