Happy book birthday! And so the day is finally here, and true to form on publication day, I’ve spent most of my waking hours on various radio stations and chatting to journalists, not to mention signing a pile of 503 quite large and heavy books in the Penguin offices on the Strand.

Cauli Mac-N-Cheese, as seen on ITV!

This is part mac ‘n’ cheese, part cauliflower cheese, and deliciously golden and moreish with some crispy bacon thrown in for good measure.

JACK & ALLEGRA’S HOT PORK SALAD

When we were invited to River Cottage HQ to do a cooking demo together, we didn’t realise we would be writing the recipe on the train on the way there, with some home grown radishes, a couple of pork steaks and a whole lot of knives tucked into the luggage rack of the 09:15 from [...]
