Essential Volume 1
Annabel's 25th book is an essential contemporary, authoritative and comprehensive kitchen companion for today's home cook. A 320-page treasury of easy but delicious savoury recipes illustrated with full-colour photography and accompanied by an encyclopedia of tried-and-true cooking tips. Featuring more than 650 recipes, ESSENTIAL Annabel Langbein offers something for all tastes, all seasons and all occasions.
"My aim is to inspire people to try something new, then empower them to make it their own, changing ingredients to suit the season or their personal tastes, or applying 'springboard' techniques to different cuisines or flavour families. This makes it so easy to get creative in the kitchen and have fun around the table." Every recipe has been retested and tweaked for today's tastes - maybe with fewer refined ingredients or a gluten-free option, or maybe with on-trend flavours such as sriracha, chipotle or aquafaba. "It's amazing how our cooking has changed over the years. With a global pantry of flavours at our fingertips it's now so easy to make interesting dishes from all around the world."
