Simply The Best : The Art of Seasonal Cooking
Tamasin has an unbeatable philosophy: 'shop like you care (seek out the best quality ingredients, buy what is in season), cook like you mean it, and the result will be truly outstanding.' SIMPLY THE BEST is a rich selection of recipes for the home cook, from the very simplest fresh autumnal mushrooms briefly tossed in olive oil to more serious dishes such as Baked Shoulder of Lamb with Pink Fir Potatoes and Peach and Raspberry Trifle, all designed to allow you to get the very best from the season's harvest.

Alongside many of today's top chefs and cookery writers, Tamasin Day-Lewis believes in using the freshest of ingredients to get the best out of a recipe. With the plethora of specialist food producers currently emerging it is possible to get the very best and freshest of ingredients delivered right to your door. "Simply the Best" is a collection of Tamasin's recipes, many having already appeared in her Daily Telegraph cookery column on a Saturday, season by season, highlighting the produce at the peak of its perfection. Freshly picked fruit and vegetables, freshly caught fish, freshly slaughtered Spring lamb, autumn mushrooms and winter chestnuts. Innovatively mixed, the dishes acknowledge tastes from around the world: lasagna al forno, Spanish fish stew, cardamom chicken and rumbledethumps, reflecting today's multicultural cuisine. Attractively illustrated with colour photographs and accompanied by Tamasin's knowledgeable writing, it is a veritable feast of good, natural produce served to perfection. - Lucy Watson
