CUISINE REVIEW: You're All Invited - Margot Henderson

Release Date: 06/09/12


Margot Henderson's first cookbook will completely change the way we think about entertaining and family food - perfect for anyone who loved Nigella Lawson's "How to Eat", or Simon Hopkinson's "Roast Chicken and Other Stories". Want to cook dinner for fifteen? Have fifty people for drinks and canap??A?s? Feed your family comforting food at lunch time? Make an elegant dinner for eight? Transport quantities of food to a picnic so it doesn't spill and crumble? In "You're All Invited", Margot Henderson, who cooks for between 30 to 200 people every day, shows you how: using her panache as a caterer for Arnold & Henderson and restaurateur at London's Rochelle Canteen, and drawing on her family life with Fergus Henderson and their three children, she provides 165 easy and delicious recipes for all occasions.


Food for me is all about making a star of one ingredient but accompanying it with others that compliment and build upon that flavour profile and this is the approach that Margot Henderson takes in this title. The reader is treated to various options for different times of the day with rich flavours and foods that may seem simple but let you know about making the most of the items within.

It’s a great read, it has so many different choices with items that will compliment the star with my personal favourite being the Lemon Potatoes that seems magnificently decadent with a roast chicken. Add to this simple instructions, wonderful flavour profiles and all in this is a book that will definitely make its way into my Christmas menu.
