Reviewed: Bitten. Sarah Graham, Struik

BittenI have been cooking out of this marvellous book for a month now and still haven’t run out of dishes I want to try, although I have the Whole Lemon Tart in my sights for a weekend lunch party.

Sarah Graham writes a great food blog called, a clean, colourful and inviting array of recipes, reviews and foodie chat. But if you don’t have time to log on, and don’t know what the hell to cook for dinner, just keep her book on the kitchen counter. She promises easy and fast, and she delivers: Coriander Pesto-baked Hake, “Why-he-married-me” Bacon Pasta, Spicy Moroccan Chickpea Salad. I regularly make the Spinach Tart studded with bacon and Peanut Sesame Chicken quickly became a staple in our house.

To simplify our lives Graham provides a choice of Meals for a Month, and suggestions of menus for weekend entertaining with tips on wines to accompany each dish.

As the great Franck Dangereux says in his Foreword: “Bitten. is the antithesis to intimidating food; you will enjoy feasting on these down-to-earth, happy-making recipes for feeding people you love.”
