A book about eating as well as recipes, encapsulated in 24 wonderful seasonal menus. I really relate to David's food – its’ the way I like to cook for friends and family. Simple, honest, fresh fare delivered with a wonderfully evocative writing style.

Simplicity itself, and very much my style of cooking and eating. I had the honour of cooking with the author briefly at Chez Panisse - an extremely talented chef and very nice man! Really good food is not complicated.

David cooks the kind of food I want to eat and his writing feels effortless. When you read his recipes, it’s like you’re hanging out with him shooting the shit.

I think of Tanis as a cook of sunshine food in the tradition of the late Roger Verge. This is the first thing I read by Tanis. It makes me want to make food.

Tanis is as gifted a poet as he is chef. The descriptions that accompany each recipe are wise, wry and a delight to read again and again.

Beautifully designed, beautiful recipes, this is a book where style and content are perfectly matched (a rare thing).
