This is a simple approach to cooking that puts freshness and flavour first. It is about reducing recipes to their essential elements and creating meals of beauty and simplicity. Jill Dupleix has drawn on inspirat ion from all over the world and the result is a book full of stylish and sophisticated recipes to take you through the day. Each recipe is built around three building blocks, the three flavours that can make or break a meal. For example, bread, tomato, garlic; prawn, chilli, ginger or clams, beans and mint. Add to these a small supporting cast of store-cupboard ingredients and the result is simple cooking with stunning results.
