Darina Allen can be counted on for recipes that are simple, satisfying – and that seem that little bit special, too. She covers a few basics (how to make stocks, how to prep crab) but devotes most of the book to the generous dishes, based on top-quality ingredients, for which she and Ballymaloe Cookery School are famed.
from the publisher
"More than anything else I want people to discover just how easy and enjoyable it can be to cook delicious food - and what a wonderful difference it can make to everyday life." Such is the philosophy of Darina Allen, owner of the renowned Ballymaloe Cookery School at Shanagarry, Co. Cork. In Simply Delicious Suppers, she shares her enthusiasm for superb cooking where the true flavours are allowed to shine through and shows how, with good ingredients, simplicity is the key to working magic in the kitchen. With recipes for everday fare such as Ballymaloe Bacon Chop, as well as traditional Irish dishes like Dingle Pie and spectacular dinner-party creations such as Vanilla Ice-cream served in an Ice Bowl, Darina Allen describes how to prepare meals that are not only truly outstanding but also deceptively simple, and inexpensive, to make.
