Sally Clarke's cooking is of the utmost simplicity; everything depends on the absolute freshness and quality of the ingredients. It is firmly rooted in Mediterranean and California traditions, using the day's best produce in a light, contemporary style that has gained accolades, awards and rave reviews since her now world-famous restaurant, Clarke's, opened its doors in the mid 1980s in London. But at long last the rest of us have caught up with her and her philosophy. Never before has this book been so meaningful or useful. Any cook will learn a great deal and for those now following the contemporary food culture which preaches seasonality and terroir, it is a 'must-have' cookbook which won the coveted Glenfiddich Award when it was first published. This collection of her creations, arranged by season offers heaps of excellent modern recipes, and an introduction to how you, the home cook, can produce her signature dishes.
