About the Author:

Alice Hart, 28, was the youngest ever food editor at Waitrose Food Illustrated, a chef, and a food stylist whose friends describe her as a ‘feeder'. Her firm grasp on what people love to cook and eat comes from amazingly broad experience. Since begging her way into the pastry section at the renowned Griffin Inn in Sussex as a teenager, she has gained a degree in physiology and neuroscience, run a farmer's market bakery stall and become an alumnus of Leiths School of Food and Wine. Her popup restaurant week in London's Shoreditch in February sold out in less than a day. Later this year she plans to launch a Vietnamese restaurant. And whenever she has the time, she is cooking and travelling in her pride and joy: Myrtle the Hurtle, a bay window, 1972 VW camper van, fully decked-out with kitchen.

Review:

I’m going to cut to the chase and announce right off the bat that I have a lot of heart for Alice’s Cookbook. . . .The collection of recipes continue to inspire and motivate me in the kitchen. In fact, I’m having a hard time putting it aside and have a number of recipes earmarked to make in the near future. Each section of the book contains a collection of recipes for a particular menu (e.g. spring breakfast for six on the weekend) and provides make ahead suggestions to help avoid that dreaded last minute rush in the kitchen. I really appreciated the fluidity with which the recipes are written. . . .Alice include all of the relevant detail one looks for in a recipe, but keeps it open to interpretation in a way that really makes you feel in control of the dish as if you are co-creating it together. It’s more of a guide, leaving room for your natural culinary instincts to take charge. . . .Two thumbs up from me! (CookThatBook)

“I love this book. I love everything about it: the recipes, the tone and, as importantly, Alice's warmth.”

―Sophie Dahl, author of Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights

“Thoroughly modern and irresistible recipes. Full of meals for good times with friends. Makes you hungry just reading it.”

―Diana Henry, author of Pure Simple Cooking

“Alice's Cookbook brings the food of hip London chef Alice Hart to our shores, with an emphasis on dishes that are seasonal, crowd-friendly and uncomplicated. Hart . . . pairs flavors that make sense; they make complete palettes. . . . A relatively inexperienced, 30-something cook can pull off Hart's recipes and will appreciate [their] modern sensibility.”
Washington Post

“A cookbook filled with recipes to nourish a busy lifestyle. [Alice Hart provides] easy-to-follow menus and recipes for seasonal lunches, portable breakfasts, and parties, among other occasions. . . . For readers too busy to cook or those simply seeking fresh and tasty ideas.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Alice Hart . . . should feel very proud of what she's done. This is a compact paperback volume which is just the right size to carry around and study to tab all the great recipes. I try to test each book I own with at least one recipe, and for this one, it was the brownies. She boasted they are the best ever, and my husband concurs! The rest of the book is laid out around occasions in which you might prepare a certain meal– picnic, around the fire, Sundays, etc. I found this organization to be helpful not just for thinking of meal planning, but also in getting into narrative of the book and feeling as though I could relate to Alice's lifestyle and how food fits into it. Some of the recipes are a bit involved, but every so often, it's good to make an extra effort in the kitchen. I really like this book, a lot. With superb photography by Emma Lee, it is definitely on my list of favorites!”
