On The Side
Cookbook #1 … first published in 2017.
On the Side is a sourcebook of inspirational side dishes. It encourages cooks to make more of the trimmings, rather than end up with uninspiring and / or overcooked mush. Sides make up the majority of your meal, so don’t neglect them.
The recipes are interesting enough to individually inspire the other things you’re cooking; indeed, within the pages are 140 recipes that require just a little effort, but will make a big impact on your meal.
If you’ve already fixed your mind on the centrepiece, there’s also a comprehensive directory at the back to guide you to recipes in the book that’ll work with it.
Seek it out in your local bookstore. Alternatively, if you’re an Amazon shopper, I get a % of their sale price if you order through this link (think of it as you enforcing a small tax on them). Or consider Bookshop.org, who if you use this link also send a small % my way, plus 10% to the independent bookshop trade. Or, finally, buy direct from me, and I can send you a signed copy (it’s a discounted price, but with postage it works out a fraction more than RRP).
A revolutionary cookbook that moves the humble side dish to centre stage

“This is both a beautiful and eminently useful cookbook. I know it will often be pulled out from my kitchen shelves.” Anna Jones
“A lifelong fan of ‘bits on the side’, the joyous accompaniments to the main course, I am thrilled to see them taking centre stage. I want to eat every recipe in this book.” Nigel Slater
