Batch But Better: 3 Meals From 1: More Taste + Less Waste

We rated this book:


Leftovers can feel boring, but not with this cookbook! For example, leftover Baked Salmon leads to a lovely Omelette and some Fishcakes; extra Roast Chicken adds heartiness to Mushroom Risotto or a Chilli Stir Fry. Each main recipe is followed by two extension recipes, but each can also stand on its own if you prefer. Most recipes indicate that they “serve 4, plus leftovers”, which I found to be the case. The Sticky Almond + Honey Tart made a generous nine-inch pie which led deliciously into a filling for Stuffed Baked Apples. Do be aware of serving sizes and amounts; the Rich Chocolate Mousse gave me eight delicious portions but if I’d wanted leftovers to make Chocolate Fridge Cake, as suggested, I really could only have served four. (I will just double it next time though!) The amazing photography that accompanies each recipe is reminiscent of paintings by old Dutch masters: “Still Life with Cranberries and Braised Red Cabbage”. Some of these you want to frame and hang on the wall! It’s a beautiful book and a fun way to cook that keeps mealtimes interesting and enjoyable even when leftovers are on the menu.
