From the cover: Gary Rhodes has long been championing British cookery. Now in New British Classics he has created his most ambitious collection of recipes yet.
The culmination of a quest to modernize and enhance traditional British food, New British Classics contains mouth-watering variations on much-loved favourites as well as stunning innovations. Recipes such as Scotch Eggs, Steak and Kidney Pie and Sticky Toffee Apple Pudding are revisited and updated, while Lobster Omelette Thermidor, Chicken Fillet Steaks with Chestnut Mushrooms and Iced Vanilla Parfait with Nutmeg Clotted Cream are just some of Garys future classics.
In addition to over 300 recipes, a series of special features looks at the many traditions that have shaped culinary Britain. Sunday Lunch, Picnics, and the Great British Breakfast are revived with hard-to-resist recipes such as Individual Roast Beef with Bitter Onions, Gruyere Cheese, Leek and Mushroom Flan and The Full English Breakfast.
With his imaginative use of the very best ingredients and ideas, Gary Rhodes gives us the definitive book on British cookery for the new millennium. Destined to become a cookery classic in its own right, New British Classics is essential reading for food lovers everywhere.
