| Recipes for every palate and every occasion, from a leisurely lunch
to a formal dinner party. Emphasis is placed on the freshest vegetables,
combined with grains and pulses. From warm asparagus salad to Homity
Pie, from braised celery in cream sauce to chocolate pecan tart, this
book draws its inspirations from all corners of the globe.
Cranks Restaurant first opened in Carnaby Street in 1961 and was hugely
influential in developing the way people approached vegetarian cooking.
Even in the 1960s, the proprietors at Cranks were sourcing organic
vegetables and stone-ground wheat .
The New Cranks Recipe Book is full of good, sensible recipes, enhanced
by the superb photography of Gus Filgate . Looking through the book,
the reader is not conscious of the fact that meat has no mention.
Each recipe is sufficiently interesting in its own right and would
satisfy even the hungriest carnivore. The recipes are varied, all
fairly simple and look good. The use of colourful and contrasting
ingredients has not been neglected and each dish is a masterpiece
to look at.
