Praise For Eating Well Everyday…
“Inventive and delicious home cooking.” - Waitrose Weekend
I have loved Peter Gordon’s food since I was a wee young thing - and that is a very, very long time ago! (Well, maybe not quite that young, as I believe I am older than him!) Everything in his restaurants or his books has the particular mark of his genius: a mixture of exuberant culinary curiosity, essential generosity and a bold but sensitively attuned palate. - Nigella Lawson
Eating Well Everyday is a delight of a book, with recipes that are accessible to the regular home cook. Lots of the recipes give a nod to Peter’s love of Asia but there are European dishes, too. Many of the recipes would actually work well with your regular roast dinners – this is a mix-and-match style of book. The reader will quickly come up with their own preferred combinations. - Mostly Food & Travel Journal
