Simple, delicious, unfussy - Sunday Times resident food writer Lucas Hollweg offers good food for real people. Good Things to Eat is just that: great food that focuses on the ever-popular ingredients and types of recipes that home cooks turn to again and again; the dishes that make everyone go 'yum!' From risottos, stews, gratins and things on toast to lamb, fruit, pasta, pies, squashes and puds, Lucas opens up scrumptious new possibilities for the kinds of flavours people know and love. Lucas weaves together his recipes with personal memories, inspiration, gentle advice and the odd joke. His warm, unhurried writing and layman's understanding of what needs explaining and what doesn't, plus his usage of ingredients that people can easily get hold of, ensure he will inspire everyone to make uncomplicated, tasty food - no matter how practised they are in the kitchen. At long last, here is the book his fans have been waiting for.
