'A collection of vibrant recipes'
Packed full of delicious, satisfying recipes and loads of meat wisdom, Carneval promises to give you a better understanding of how to source, cook and appreciate the meat that you eat. Full of delicious meat recipes from around the world, popular family favourites, such as Swedish Meatballs and Ragu Bolognese, rub shoulders with more unusual dishes, like Middle Eastern Kibbeh and Chinese Kung Pao Chicken.
Whether you want to master the art of a perfectly cooked steak, or transform cheaper, tougher cuts into silky, melt-in-the-mouth delights, Harry Eastwood encourages you to honour the whole animal and eat meat with joy and moderation. The very best way to do that is to make sure that every meat meal is a Carneval.
Let’s eat more salad! It’s fresh, colourful and healthy fast food. A far cry from the ‘rabbit food’ image of old, salads are now rightfully top of the menu. In A Salad for All Seasons, Harry Eastwood shakes things up, introducing us to over 100 delicious, original and easy-to-make salads to see you through the year.
Spring and Summer are packed with vibrant, exciting recipes that can be knocked up in minutes, such as Peach and Mozarella with Sweet Chilli and Tomato Glaze and Thai Beef and Basil with Noodles, while Autumn and Winter offer warm, hearty, nourishing combinations, such as Roasted Squash with Thyme and Taleggio and Spinach, Lamb and Fig with Orange and Honey Dressing.
From well-loved favourites to exotic delights inspired by Harry’s travels and love of fresh ingredients, A Salad for All Seasons is the ultimate proof that natural, fresh and nutritious food can also be a feast – the whole year round.
Harry Eastwood has taken on the challenge of a lifetime: marrying her love of classic French cookery with a desire to maintain her waistline.
The Skinny French Kitchen is the result of Harry's year spent tasting, testing and tweaking the great French classics in her tiny Parisian kitchen up seven flights of stairs. Every recipe has been slimmed down to a fraction of its usual calorie cost without robbing it of flavour or its French character. From light and delightful Tarte aux Pommes and Mousse au Chocolat to irresistible Coq au Vin Blanc and Croque Monsieur, Harry has proved once again that fat and flavour don't always go hand in hand . . .
DELICIOUS WHEAT-FREE CAKES THAT WILL REVOLUTIONISE YOUR BAKING
Harry Eastwood loves cake: from light, fluffy Victoria Sponge to dark and delicious Forbidden Chocolate Brownies. In Red Velvet & Chocolate Heartache, she has fiddled, tweaked and thought outside the box to pioneer a way of bringing exquisite cakes that remain natural and healthy into our everyday lives - by introducing ingredients from the vegetable garden. Ginger Sticky Toffee Pudding made with parsnip, or Orange Squash Cupcakes made with butternut squash are bound to amuse and delight your tastebuds.
In this spirited cookery book, Harry shares her baking secrets and practical knowledge as a cook and as a food writer to prove that it is possible to have your cake and eat it.
Harry Eastwood first came to the public’s attention in 2007 when she co-presented Channel 4’s popular prime-time television series Cook Yourself Thin. She later went on to present the 20-part US version of the show on Lifetime network and is the author of three other cookery books, Red Velvet & Chocolate Heartache – which has sold more than 42,000 copies, The Skinny French Kitchen – which was nominated for the prestigious Guild of Food Writers Miriam Poulnin Award for Healthy Eating, and A Salad for All Seasons.
Famous for her imaginative and unusual approach to food, Harry’s focus remains the creation of original and reliable recipes that work every time. Her most recent TV series have included Fox’s Baking Good, Baking Bad and Sinful Sweets, which aired on Cooking Channel USA.
Harry is especially well known for successfully sneaking vegetables into cakes. What may come as a surprise is that she has also been researching meat in all its aspects for more than 15 years. Her passion for butchery and all meat matters even took her to Smithfield Market where she moonlit as an apprentice butcher in her early twenties. Carneval is the result of this colourful journey.
Harry lives in Paris.
