Time is the highly anticipated follow-up to the award-winning Gather. In it Gill Meller distills the essence of his approach to food and cooking time spent in the kitchen, with good ingredients, makes for the best possible way of life.
Morning, daytime and night these are the touchstones of our days, and days are the markers of our years. Gill's unique dishes fit within this framework, moving through the seasons, from freshness and light, to comfort and warmth.
Gill's dishes follow the course of the day: simple breakfasts (wild mushroom & sausage chachouka, buckwheat pancakes), glorious seasonal lunches (steamed vegetables with tamari, honey & sunflower seeds, chicken with chamomile, tomato & anchovy tart, date, olive oil & fennel cake), evening gatherings in the soft glow of summer or chill of winter (lentil dhal with crispy kale, roast pheasant with parsnips & chorizo, ceviche with rhubarb, lemon & chilli, treacle tart with thyme & orange, quince & vanilla crème brûlée).
This is the best of modern British cooking, from the most exciting new voice in food writing.
Praise for Gill's previous book, Gather:
Gather does for contemporary British food what Ottolenghi has done for contemporary Middle Eastern cooking... Beautiful writing, beautiful food, this is an exquisite book that I cannot stop reading. Nigella Lawson
My book of the autumn and possibly of the year... Gather is a perfect expression of something food writers have been trying to define for the past three decades: modern British cooking. Diana Henry
