Home is a collection of more than 200 original recipes by Stephanie Alexander. Each recipe is a finely crafted tribute to her passions and preferences for produce and flavour, and each reflects her consummate skill in communicating the fundamentals of technique.
There are detailed recipes for the more ambitious home cook, but also simple ways to combine beautiful ingredients to make dishes for everyday eating. Essays on people, places and experiences offer inspiration to readers looking to deepen their knowledge and appreciation of food.
Beautifully designed and photographed, Home is a celebration of the sensual and social delights of food and an essential addition to any kitchen shelf. The recipes - classic, masterful and delicious - will be cooked, shared and enjoyed for years to come.
Praise for Home:
'Stephanie Alexander is one of the few chefs with the heart of a home cook: every recipe she writes is infused with warmth, vibrancy, and a deep understanding of the pleasures of both cooking and eating; no kitchen should be without her. And behind each of her recipes is her vast knowledge and keen intelligence, which she shares so generously and with such clarity and economy. There is really no one to match her: an enthusiast for farm-to-fork eating and a well-seasoned enthusiast with a peerless palate, she has always been both a repository of tradition and yet always ahead of her time. I bow down before her!' - Nigella Lawson
