New Voices in Food: Comfort & Spice by Niamh Shields £ 14.99, paperback
Full-flavoured, generous and easy to reproduce recipes have won Niamh Shields a huge following for her blog, Eat Like A Girl, as well as critical acclaim (The Times included the blog in its top ten food blogs from around the world).
Now, for the first time, her adventurous though frugal food and warm, bright writing style is collected in a book. Niamh’s gastronomic curiosity has gathered together the cookery of her native Ireland, in such dishes as the Cork speciality Spiced Christmas Beef, as well as exotically greedy but delicious Asian Chicken Skin Skewers, and an elegant Raspberry and Rose Tart, in dishes that embrace both the passing of the seasons, the foods of the world, and the special occasions of a modern life.
Comfort and Spice is a book both to read in bed and to splatter with sauce next to the stove, whether you’re a nervous novice – a group of potential cooks very close to Niamh’s heart – or simply someone who wants to make their food sing.
