Gary Rhodes - The Compete Cookery Year

"A serious and passionate ambassador of British food", Times Magazine

Gary Rhodes has always been dedicated to championing the abundance of natural produce available to us in the UK. In The Complete Cookery Year he shares his knowledge and enthusiasm for seasonal ingredients to ensure we make the very most of our cooking.

Divided up by month, The Complete Cookery Year offers 100 exciting new dishes, as well as the recipes from his bestselling Spring into Summer and Autumn into Winter. From the fresh taste of early new potatoes to the sweetness of home-grown summer fruits, Gary takes a closer look at what's in season throughout the year and provides ideas on using these ingredients to enhance our everyday cooking. Delicious new dishes include spring-inspired Grilled lamb chops with mint-rolled Jerseys and apricot onions, a summery Broken salmon, cucumber and lettuce salad with fresh dill cream dressing, autumnal Sautéed pheasant and spinach with almond sauce and a rich winter Blood orange almond cake.

In addition to the recipes, Gary's new look, large-format volume contains 12 monthly features in which he focuses on particular ingredients in their prime. From spring greens in March to wild mushrooms in September, Gary offers advice on which varieties to choose and celebrates the flavours and culinary delights of each season.

With over 350 recipes and more than 130 stunning photographs, there are ideas to suit every occasion. The Complete Cookery Year is essential reading for experienced and novice cooks alike, and will help you rediscover the joy of cooking and eating the very best food throughout the year.

Gary Rhodes is one of Britain's best-loved chefs. He has held a Michelin star at four different restaurants since 1986. In 1996, Gary was presented with the prestigious CATEY Special Award, the catering industry's equivalent to an Oscar, for helping to revive British cookery and for his total dedication to the industry. He has made nine television series for the BBC and has written over ten bestselling books, including the award-winning New British Classics. One of Gary's top priorities is to continue his work on reintroducing cookery classes into schools on a compulsory basis. Gary Rhodes will be opening a new restaurant in the City of London in autumn 2003.
