Delia Smith's Summer Collection

Front Cover
Viking, 1995 - Cooking - 212 pages
Delia Smith's Summer Collection was the most phenomenal number-one bestseller in British publishing history, with more than one million hardcovers sold. Now this Martha Stewart from across the pond has adapted her clear, simple, inspirational recipes for American cooks.
Delia Smith's cookbook is a celebration of summer and all its glorious ingredients. She has distilled the essence of summer into a collection that draws the sun into the kitchen - whatever the weather.
From early May to September a dazzling progression of summer produce brings with it freshness, excitement, and the anticipation of what is new. Delia Smith takes this as her inspiration and introduces us to the more unusual ingredients that are becoming increasingly popular: such as fresh lemongrass, cilantro, and sorrel. More familiar ingredients are transformed by subtle influences of Californian, Italian, Spanish, Greek, and Oriental flavors and ideas.
