Just recently it would have been hard to believe with what great respect and gratitude we will treat the most ordinary flour or eggs. The months of the pandemic have changed our approach to food. They taught us how to waste less and be more creative with recipes and ingredients. Anna Jones's book has been laden with ideas on how to reduce the most common losses in food preparation. There are universal recipes for using any amount of vegetables and advice on how to use what most often ends up in the bin. Anna uses only a few ingredients and a minimum of utensils. He is involved in the problems of protecting the Earth and climate and suggests how to change everyday habits in small steps for the benefit of us and the Earth.
Big changes start with small steps!
Recipes in the book are grouped by method of preparation. Stews, curries and soups are included in the chapter titled One Pot. Pancakes, pancakes and crispy fried vegetables went to the chapter One pan. All-in-one baked dinners and desserts have been collected under the banner One tray. There is also a collection of quick recipes for those occasions when we lack the time or the desire to cook and stand at the stove. At the end of each chapter, some complex ideas for meals that we can prepare when friends visit us.
Chapter One vegetable is a collection of ideas for vegetables that we buy most often. At the beginning, information about the types or varieties of a given vegetable and how long the season lasts are included. We will learn how to prepare them, and then cook them and what goes best with them. Finally, ten simple ideas for each vegetable.
