Alice Hart is an exciting and authoritative new young voice on food who loves to share her culinary knowledge with friends. In this book she encourages her generation of 20- and 30-somethings to cook the original, modern food they enjoy to fit the lifestyles they lead. Dip into Alice’s Cookbook in January to find an inspirational New Year brunch, or during August for a vibrant and memorable summer kitchen supper. Each recipe is designed to fit into busy social lives: Hands-on cooking times are provided for each dish, menus are adaptable to seasons and availability, and advice is given to scale quantities up or down to feed a crowd (or not).


About Alice Hart

See more books from this Author
Alice Hart, 28, was the youngest ever food editor at Waitrose Food Illustrated, a chef, and a food stylist whose friends describe her as a 'feeder'. Her firm grasp on what people love to cook and eat comes from amazingly broad experience. Since begging her way into the pastry section at the renowned Griffin Inn in Sussex as a teenager, she has gained a degree in physiology and neuroscience, run a farmer's market bakery stall and become an alumnus of Leiths School of Food and Wine.

And whenever she has the time, she is cooking and travelling in her pride and joy: Myrtle the Hurtle, a bay window, 1972 VW camper van, fully decked-out with kitchen.
