When the temperature cools down and the nights become longer, we tend to crave our favourite comfort foods - slow-cooked meats that fall off the bone, rich chowders and hearty stews, succulent roasts with all the trimmings and fragrant and warming curries served with steamed rice.
This is the time of year when we tend to skip the salads, smoothies and lighter meals and the art of winter cooking comes into its own. Winter: Warm recipes for cold nights, is a stunning collection of innovative cold-weather recipes perfect for this time of year.
From simple and warming traditional comfort foods like classic French onion soup, slow-cooked beef stroganoff, chicken cacciatore, rich osso buco and a moreish tuna pasta bake, to impressive modern cold-weather dishes including Asian-style caramel pork, Panang chicken curry, roasted pumpkin risotto with browned butter and sage, and creamy Calvados chicken, as well as a host of decadent desserts - think dulche de leche and chocolate peanut butter puddings, slow-baked spiced quinces, chai-spiced slow-baked rice puddings and winter warming dried fruit compote - Winter has a recipe to cover every occasion.
With 140 recipes included - designed to not only taste amazing but to warm you up too - Winter is a comprehensive volume on cold-weather cooking. This season now promises to be that much more delicious!
