Roasting Pan Suppersby Rosie Sykes
(£14.99, National Trust Books, out 14 May)
Rosie Sykes, a chef and food writer, has written
a book to answer every home-cook’s prayers. Not
only is it packed full of enticing recipes we can’t
wait to cook, they’re all made in just one roasting tin or pot, meaning
less hassle and minimal washing-up. The book contains one-pan
meat, fish and veg-based dishes, as well as sides and desserts,
helpfully categorised at the beginning by recipe length (under
30 minutes, an hour, over an hour etc), and grouped into menus,
so you can plan feasts for friends.
