How to Eat Brilliantly Every Day by Abel & Cole

From the super indulgent to the crazily quick, Abel & Cole recipes are fast, fun and full of unusual ingredient combinations. There are also plenty of swapping suggestions so you can enjoy the dishes all year round. For those struggling to find the time, there are even three-line recipes that can also help use up those stray ingredients that have been nestling at the back of the fridge.

Enjoy sweet and sour rhubarb pork with egg-fried rice or griddled cabbage steaks with feta and mint in the spring. Indulge in smokey aubergine and tahini chocolate brownies in the summer, or plum and bay custard tart in the autumn. And welcome in winter with baked golden beetroot risotto with roasted garlic cream, and spiced gingerbread truffles.

How to Eat Brilliantly Every Day guides you through the seasons and explains more about the difference organic really does make for a better way of eating and living. It aims to inspire readers to go beyond their cookery comfort zone and experience the joy of veg. The ‘School of Veg’ will teach you the basics of making your own broth, kraut and slaw, as well as how to smoke, dry and pickle at home, to give you the freedom and skills to create your own dishes.
