I have been lucky enough to get my hands on a copy of Marcus Wareing’s new cookbook One Perfect Ingredient – three ways to cook it, a follow on from his successful How To Cook The Perfect which was released in 2007. The cookbook is all about taking one simple everyday ingredient, using a simple recipe and ending up with great home cooking. My kind of cookery!
To say the cookbook was inspiring is an understatement. Within 30 min of me receiving the book I was in the kitchen whipping up the gingerbread on p188. As you can see from the photo below, it was delicious and perfect with a cuppa.
I love the way the book is split up into sections with my personal favourite being “store cupboard”. There is great recipes throughout the book using everyday ingredients in a different way. For example with the humble carrot he makes makes Carrot & Coriander Galette, Three-Carrot Salad with Feta and a Carrot Cake with cream cheese frosting; all of which sound delicious. The photos accompanying the recipes are mouthwatering.
To have a chance of winning a copy of One Perfect Ingredient pop along to Maninas: Food Matters. Be quick the competition closes on the 7th April.
