Food is more than something to satisfy hunger pangs, it can revive us and give us energy, it warms us on a cold day, it can lift our mood when we are feeling blue, it can even evoke nostalgic memories of a person, place or time. Choose from warming savoury recipes to raise your spirits, from Roasted Root Vegetable Soup and Bubble and Squeak to a Fried Mozzarella Sandwich and Curried Lamb Samosas, or spoil yourself with a mainstream national dish, perhaps Shepherd?s Pie, Lentil Dahl, Chicken Fajitas or Moussaka. Breads from around the world offer sustaining fare for every part of the day and night, whether baguettes, ciabatta, bagels, pitta or naan. There is a perfect time and a place for each one of an array of sweet indulgences that includes Baked Caramel Custard, Boston Banoffi Pie, Blackberry Charlotte, Sticky Toffee Pudding, Lardy Cake and Chocolate Eclairs. Or if you are partial to an indulgent drink take your pick from Frothy Hot Chocolate or Coffee Egg Nog. This glorious cookbook offers more than 150 tempting recipes that hit the spot - from soups, stews, roasts and risottos, or g?teaux, cookies, cr?pes and ice-cream, every dish has the power to soothe your soul.
