Mary Rolph Lamontagne confides that her inspiration for EATS was a light-bulb moment while working at a bush camp in Botswana. They were low on stock and the left overs were building up in the fridge. High-paying guests were expecting a memorable meal. In addition to a diverse and colourful collection of recipes, EATS provides practical solutions for saving and reusing ingredients to create new (and exciting) meals. Mary’s simple tips on reinventing left overs will help the home cook eliminate waste, save money, and challenge their culinary creativity. There are 27 master recipes with another 108 alternate recipes that are arranged by the colour of the ingredients. So, for instance, The Reds chapter includes ingredients such as beetroot, tomato and apple, and each ingredient boasts its own range of dishes, e.g. Beetroot tart with baby rocket, Tomato and fennel soup with cheese croutons, and Apple-stuffed pork chops. An extensive index ensures that the reader can locate dishes within the more traditional breakdown of appetizers, light meals, main courses, desserts, cakes, vegetarian dishes, etc. EATS covers a wide range of techniques and cooking styles, and also offers many tips and tricks on reusing food items, what to buy and how to store, and even growing your own fruit and vegetables.
