The Aga is much more than an oven: it’s an icon. It’s a statement. It’s a way of life. Aga cookers have never been more popular, and the queen of Aga cookery is undoubtably Amy Willcock. Here is her definitive Aga Bible, with 300 classic, timeless recipes and bags of advice and tips for Aga owners.
Here are all the essential recipes that every Aga owner needs to know – from how to cook a full English breakfast on an Aga, making soups, cooking fish and roasting meats, through to baking pies, cakes and breads. The delicious family food includes Beef stroganoff, Steak, mushroom and horseradish pudding, and Bacon and egg pie, and there are stunning dinner-party recipes such as Rillettes of duck with toasted brioche, Chicken in Marsala with oranges and shallots and Parmigiano, thyme and rosemary risotto. Amy also tempts the tastebuds with a delectable range of desserts and cakes, including Raspberry souffles, Chocolate pecan tart and Lemon meringue cake. And there are 30 new and exclusive recipes, such as Moules marinieres, Crab and coconut soup and Apple and onion tart. All the recipes feature conventional cooking instructions, so even non-Aga owners can enjoy Amy’s tasty dishes.
