'Josceline Dimbleby’s Complete Cookbook' is a selection of 260 of her favourite recipes from those that she wrote during her fifteen years as food writer for the 'Sunday Telegraph'. In addition to her inventive and delicious recipes, Josceline writes evocatively of their origins and draws on her travels throughout the world to provide a fascinating background to the food. The recipes themselves have been revised and updated, making this a unique collection.
Josceline’s distinctive style and practical approach to cookery have ensured her reputation as one of the most popular cookery writers in the country. Her enduringly popular dishes give readers the confidence to try new ways of cooking, new flavours, new ingredients, and reflect Josceline’s love of food and cooking. As she says, “One of the reasons I enjoy cooking is that wonderful feeling of pleasing people and of giving.”
'Josceline Dimbleby’s Complete Cookbook' covers occasions throughout the day and year. Assuredly good ‘First Impressions’ provide stunning recipes such as Grilled oysters topped with a crust of fresh chilli, ginger and coriander, Broadbeans and quails’ eggs with proscuitto, or Roasted onions stuffed with sun-dried tomatoes, pine kernels and goat’s cheese. ‘Fish Feasts’ celebrate Josceline’s love of this versatile, healthy food – Red rice and smoked haddock pudding, Fish steaks and avocado with tomatoes, lime, chilli and angostura bitters, or Salmon fillet in a bay leaf cream; while her travels throughout the world have provided inspiration for ‘Traveller’s Tastes’ – recipes featuring touches of the east and using many of the exotic herbs and spices which characterize Josceline’s work.
From picnics to dinner parties, family favourites, Christmas creations or afternoon tea, here are marvellously inspiring recipes to be used again and again. Accompanied by colour photographs, not only of the food, but taken in Josceline’s home, this is a very personal collection and one that will be treasured by her readers everywhere.
“When I went to see the editor of my first cookery book, she gave me one of Josceline’s books and said, ‘This is how to do it’, and that’s what I’ve always thought since!
Josceline has this knack of making everything seem easy to do, and if she were ever to find a couple of her fish cookery ideas creeping into one of my future books, I hope she’ll forgive me.”
“I love Josceline Dimbleby’s cooking. Her recipes are imaginative, eclectic and original, yet at the same time both familiar and reassuring. This collection is everything I want home cooking to be – simple, innovative, friendly and informal, the sort of recipes and ideas you turn to over and over again.”
