The Trifle Bowl and Other Tales

One cook, her kitchen and a lifetime of recipes.

A cookery book like no other, The Trifle Bowl and Other Tales is a dip into Lindsey Bareham’s kitchen, introducing us to more of her tempting, easy-to-follow seasonal recipes, this time organized by the well-loved and well-used pots, pans, gadgets and utensils she uses to cook them. Roast Tomato Risotto with Saffron and Honey in a sauté pan, Cod, Anchovy and Spinach Boulangère made using a mandoline, Vietnamese Chicken Patties with Mint Salad and Roast Peanuts in a quaint burger press, and Raspberry Jelly Trifle in her grandmother’s trifle bowl. This unique approach to ordering recipes also looks at the objects themselves – their history, design evolution and why they’re good at what they do – and their power to evoke memories of meals past. It is not just a book to cook from, Lindsey’s fine writing makes it a pleasure to read from too.
