Small Adventures in Cooking synopsis
Considered an exciting new voice that is irrepressible in food, James Ramsden is also one of a generation of 20 and 30, and many of them, despite keeping pace with current trends, are reluctant to cook anything more demanding than pasta. In this first book by James, the influential food blogger and pop-up dinner club host aims to get his peers out of their cooking routine and try out delicious, unexpected, and simple recipes.
Post-work fast food like lamb chops with harissa and hummus salad, food for friends like roasted eggplant with tahini and pomegranate and delicious slow-cooked dishes like pork with apple juice and lentils are all fuss-free and achievable for any aspiring cook. Nothing here is scary, daunting, or expensive but everything is different enough to liven up the kitchen.
Because James believes cooking is more fun when he is filled with a sense of adventure and exploration. Not crossing continents or kind of eating insects, but the kind of simple change - using unusual spices in a plate, a trip to the butchers to get interesting cuts of meat or conjuring up something cool from the contents of the corner corner - will help elevate your food beyond the day.
In this book, James invites you to join him on his culinary adventure with quick feasts, fine dinners, slow lunches and late-night snacks that will make every meal a little exploration.
