Tamasin's Kitchen Classics - Tamasin Day-Lewis

Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 2006, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with the expected associated chafing to the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight.

Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “What is a classic? Do we even know any more? This book is full of the dishes Tamasin is cooking now. Her classics are all about taking the best ingredients, the dishes she and her family know and love, and breathing new life into them.

Bread and butter pudding becomes gingerbread and butter: in go some pears and a whiff of stem ginger. She swaps classic lemon curd for vibrant raspberry, blackcurrant and redcurrant curd, turning them into tarts, ice creams and steamed sponge puddings. Classic old-fashioned dumplings are revived with a hit of horseradish, a sprinkle of parsley, or a hint of English mustard.

There are New World dishes and Old World dishes: a perfectly simple black-and-white risotto balsamico, a warming New England clam chowder, an autumnal, musky morel and wild boar stew.

When the cupboard is all but bare Tamasin whizzes up little crab custards spiked with sherry, Parmesan and cayenne pepper. In the fruitless winter months, she invents a grainy dried fig and hazelnut ice cream and stirs last year’s homemade Seville orange marmalade into a stupendous creamy cake.

Tamasin’s Kitchen Classics is the book that will bring fresh tastes and scents to jaded palates and inspire all keen cooks. A classic for our times.”
