A Taste of Home: 200 Quick and Easy Recipes

With A Taste of Home, Angela Hartnett brings her informal, grounded style of cooking into our kitchens. Drawing inspiration from her childhood experiences of accessible home cooking with her Italian grandmother, she mixes Mediterranean influences with European to create delectable recipes that are straightforward, quick and easy to make.

Whether you want to cook a simple lunch or an after-work supper, Angela has a mouthwatering, easy recipe to satisfy your needs. If you just want a snack or a starter you can try Lamb Broth with Mint, or Goat’s Curd and Lentil Salad. For main meals there are fresh twists on classic home dishes, such as Beef Stew with Butternut Squash and Red Onions, as well as more unusual dishes like Quail Salad with Harissa Dressing – and some traditional Italian recipes including Sausage Rigatoni and Fennel. Those with a sweet tooth can indulge in Ginger and Passion Fruit Trifle or Chocolate Pecan Tart.

With mouthwatering photography by Jonathan Lovekin, this is, simply put, an indispensable cookbook and an essential item on any home-cooking enthusiast’s shelves.
