Author(s): Laura Mason

Cooking & Food

* From Steak and Kidney Pie and Lancashire Hotpot to Coq Au Vin and Luxury Fish Pie, stews and pies are the ultimate comfort food. * Prepared ahead or left to cook gently during the afternoon, there are few meals that are simpler to make or better for sharing with friends. * All recipes can be made with inexpensive cuts of meat and added to with seasonal ingredients or whatever you have to hand. Delicious, slow-cooked ingredients simmering in the cooking pot or inside a homemade pastry crust are among life's greatest simple pleasures. Easy and economical, pies and stews are simple to make and can be thrown together in minutes, making a filling and nutritious meal that can be left to cook gently while you get on with the rest of your day. The ultimate comfort food, they make good use of inexpensive cuts of meat and are very versatile - ingredients can be altered or added depending on the season, mood or whatever is to hand in the cupboard. Laura Mason presents a selection of quality recipes for every palate, including beef, veal, lamb, pork, chicken (of course), game, fish and vegetables. From Lancashire Hotpot, Lamb Casserole and Chicken Pie to luxury Fish Pie with Potato Topping and Irish Stew with Dumplings, there is something here for everyone, whatever the occasion.
