    'Every now and again a food writer with a fresh and authentic voice comes along, and Jack Monroe is that rare find' NIGELLA LAWSON

    A Year in 120 Recipes is a mouth-watering seasonal guide to what-to-eat-when and how to do it in style.

    In this beautiful food diary, Jack Monroe divides the year into six and teaches us how to make the most of seasonal produce. Whether you're planning a light lunch al fresco, a family supper (for even the pickiest of eaters) or a romantic meal for two, there are affordable and tasty recipes for every occasion.

    Recipes include Radish, Pea and Mint Risotto; Smoked Mackerel with Rhubarb Salsa; Lamb and Aubergine 'Baba Gosht' Curry or Brown Sugar Meringues with Blackberry Yoghurt - all bursting with taste and goodness but always keeping to a tight budget.

    A Year in 120 Recipes is both a brilliant cookbook and a celebration of cooking and eating all year round.
