I bought Tender volume 1 a few weeks ago thinking it looks like a nice big fat book full of interesting recipes. I was so wrong, it is so much more than that. It’s one of the best cookery books I own.
If there is a vegetable he has not included in some form or other, I can’t spot it. I have always thought I don’t like certain vegetables, I was so wrong about this too. I now have a new love affair with vegetables and there isn’t a single one I would overlook. Everything is made to seem so easy – it turns out it is.
Leek and Pancetta risotto – made with leek instead of onion and a standard risotto recipe and dinner was on the plate within half an hour. It was scrumptious. I am eagerly anticipating Volume 2.
This book has also made me want to start growing my own vegetables. I think I will start with broad beans, tomatoes and spinach. Lets wait and see what happens…
