Chef and food writer Claire Thomson is the National Trust food writer and author of the superb cookbooks, The 5 O’ Clock Apron and Art of the Larder. We’re delighted to welcome Claire back to cook in the bookshop from her New Kitchen Basics. You will really revitalise your repertoire with this refreshing book. Most of us buy the same ingredients week in, week out, and cook the same old recipes. Claire wants to encourage people to ditch the boring chicken stir-fry, the all-too-predictable spag bol and dreary fish pie, and enliven their cooking and eating. She takes our favourite supermarket ingredients and reinvents them as modern classics. Simple yet imaginative, her kitchen expertise and knowledge of flavour combinations mean that these dishes will become your new standby meals. A new essential cookbook, a modern solution to the eternal question: “What shall I cook tonight?” Join us this evening for lots of lovely tastes and kitchen tips.
“Claire is a clever cook who writes recipes, which are useful, affordable and practical (not as easy as it sounds). Bravo Claire, a lovely book in every way.” Anna Jones
