The Cornershop Cookbook : Delicious Recipes from your local shop Hardback


For most people, an amble round a farmers' market is a luxury, something that belongs in the hallowed realm of the weekend.

On most weeknights we're more likely to dash to the local cornershop or convenience store to grab something that'll pass for dinner.

These delicious recipes show cornershop cooking needn't mean compromise.

From yam to Spam and greens to sardines, these delicious recipes reveal the wealth of culinary creativity to be unlocked from modest cornershop offerings.

There are dead simple recipes for a quiet night in like Linguine with Tinned Crab; vibrant alternative takeaway offerings like Twice-Cooked Aubergine with Vietnamese Sauce; solutions for weeknight guests, from simple Smoked Salmon Baked Eggs to the larger-scale Fish Finger Taco party; there is comfort food, from nourishing Thyme, Chorizo and Leek Broth to down-and-dirty Meatball Sub; and finally there are sweet things like Frostie Florentines. This book will inspire newfound love for weeknight cornershop shopping and cooking.

You will discover overlooked ingredients and learn new ways with everyday staples.

Whatever your shopping options, look no further for deliciously simple meals.
