PLEASE, SIR, I WANT SOME MORE
Dear Food-lover!

I bet you're hungry. It's the cold weather, you know. Every year around this time I start thinking of beef casseroles, of thick, hearty soups, crusty bread and of roast dinners.

I love feasting in winter, especially if its cold and rainy outside. And baking too. Who doesn't like to be sitting on the couch near the heater, the rain pelting  against the window pane, when the aroma of muffins, or cakes, or brownies baking in the oven comes wafting through the house?

Well, there has to be some pros to balance the cons of winter!

Oops, almost forgot, there's a good reason why you're receiving this newsletter, I want to show you all of the exciting and scrumptious new food and drink titles just out or just about to be released. So here goes - Bon appétit!

Kind regards

RUMP AND A ROUGH RED
Greg Duncan Powell

'When ingredients are limited, the most important ingredient is ingenuity.'


There is a real art to cooking on a budget, an art that food and wine writer Greg Duncan Powell revives in Rump and a Rough Red. Each chapter focuses on a single classic ingredient and different ways to cook and serve it, always with an eye to thrift and flavour, and the glass of wine you're going to drink with the dish. Whether it's a peppered rump, lamb curry or apple and walnut cake, Greg complements his recipes with witty, engaging anecdotes about food and wine.
