Happy Easter! And what a perfect weekend for it: sunshine, chocolate, a few extra days off for many and an ideal opportunity to spend some time getting creative in the kitchen.
Big hitters in the cookery section this month have included the ever-dependable Mary Berry’s Quick Cooking and the runaway success, Pinch of Nom – delicious, home-style slimming recipes by smash-hit bloggers Kate Allinson and Kay Featherstone.
After the deluge of strict diet and fitness books published every January, Spring also heralds the arrival of a mouth-watering range of more specialist cookery books, providing us with inspiration and ideas for experimenting. Like those I’ve highlighted below, these titles can take us all over the world and often include a generous history of a particular foodstuff, making them so much more than a simple list of recipes.
So choose your favourite, don your apron and enjoy making a delicious new dish this Easter!
