A new book to accompany Simon Hopkinson's first and long-awaited TV series
Simon Hopkinson loves food and he knows how to cook it. Simon Says is the result of over 40 years' experience and is Simon's treatise on good food. He will reveal the everyday ingredients he can't live without, the cheap cuts that produce the best results and he will also show you how to make the best of them in over 100 recipes.
Simon's genius lies in his understanding what makes a great dish. Why the wine you choose is more important than the chicken in a Coq au Vin. Why you should only use Spanish anchovies - except in Jansson's Temptation, when they should be Swedish. And why breast of lamb is such an underestimated treasure.
Structured around Simon's most prized ingredients (Anchovy and Aubergine, Cheese and Wine, Smoked and Salted Fish, Ham, Bacon and A Little Pig) and written with Simon's trademark perfectionism and precision, this is the book that all foodies will cherish for life.
