In A Girl and Her Pig, April Bloomfield takes us behind the scenes of her lauded restaurants - the Spotted Pig, the Breslin and the John Dory - and into her home kitchen. Pairing quintessentially British food with a deeply Italian influence, April's recipes showcase her bold flavours, nose-to-tail ethos and love for the tactile pleasures of cooking and eating. From a creamy Smoked Haddock Chowder to the ultimate Caesar Salad, from melt-in-the-mouth Braised Lamb with Tomato and Anchovy to April's famous Ricotta and Parmesan Gnudi, these are innovative yet refreshingly straightforward dishes perfectly achievable in your home kitchen. Written with real verve and full of personality, A Girl and Her Pig is a cookbook full of tales and tips from one of the world's best-loved chefs.
