Food writer Matthew Evans shows us how to ethically source, cook and enjoy real food. With a huge range of recipes to nurture the soul and family, The Real Food Companion outlines everything you need to know to navigate today's complex food world.
Mathew is the farmer, butcher, fishmonger and baker by your side identifying all the right choices and approaches. It will appeal to dedicated foodies as well as novice cooks looking for a reliable and up-to-date kitchen companion.
Here's what he says about his new book:-
This is my take on what makes some food taste better than others, an attempt to empower cooks when they go out to shop. It answers questions you may never have thought to ask;
such as what is “bred free-range” pork, and why isn’t it actually free-range? Is veal cruel? Why you should chop the green tops of your baby carrots the minute you get them home and why you shouldn’t throw out mussels that don’t open in the pan.
This is the result of three years’ research and a lifetime’s worth of obsession with food. There are over 200 recipes and chapters are organised so you can dip in and out of topics at will.
