Sharing good food with family and friends is one of life's great pleasures, but it's easy to become stuck in the daily routine and lose your passion. Love to Cook is designed to help you discover (or rediscover) the joy of spending time in the kitchen and at the table. Inside, you'll find more than 140 recipes - themed by ingredient for easy reference - that will take you from quick weekday dinners with a clever twist to impressive ideas for entertaining. Love to Cook is filled with fantastic, original recipes from Mexican Pull-apart Pork, Bloody Mary Crab Pasta to Prawn and Pork Gyozas and even Salted Chocolate Caramel Pots. Each recipe is brought to life with stunning images created by food photographer Jeremy Simons.
