Organized by time of day, Rachel's recipes are nuanced and unusual and cover the broadest possible array of techniques and ideas. Rachel both includes and transcends such jam-filled classics as Victoria Sandwich and Classic Jelly roll to reveal an entire world of tempting sweet and savory possibilities. Blue Chair Cooks with Jam & Marmalade explores not only breakfast and tea time, but also numerous savory lunch and dinner options, including sausages, soups, salads, hors d'oeuvres, and paella. With over 150 recipes ranging from Fruited Irish Brown Bread to Brussels Sprouts with Kumquats & Smoked Salt to Poppy Seed-Cocao Nib Torte, this much-anticipated sequel to the classic Blue Chair Jam Cookbook is sure to occupy a special place in your kitchen.
