One by Florence Knight

One by Florence Knight One by Florence KnightAs Head Chef of the wildly popular Polpetto Venetian inspired restaurant in Soho, Florence Knight has been on touted as one of the country’s most exciting young talents and certainly one to watch in 2014. Whilst taking inspiration from her Italian cooking background, the key theme of her debut cookbook is how to cook with store cupboard essentials.  Each chapter focusses on a single ingredient, from ketchup to honey, with the result being a wonderful array of recipes ranging from Braised haricot beans with lardo and Salt beef with braised leeks in mustard to Maple custard tarts. Definitely one for those of you who like to spend a lazy Saturday afternoon cooking up a feast in the kitchen.  http://florenceknight.co.uk.  £17 from www.Amazon.com
