Acclaimed chef and food writer Skye Gyngell's cooking naturally follows the ebb and flow of the seasons, taking advantage of the best produce when it is seasonally available. My Favourite Ingredients focuses on what she loves cooking the most. Foods such as fish and shellfish, cheese, nuts, pulses and grains that always feature in her menus; seasonal favourites including asparagus, cherries, tomatoes and game that she particularly loves; and flavour enhancers like garlic, olive oil, vinegar and honey which are such an important part of her cooking. Her extraordinary ability to combine produce in a way that brings out their freshness and flavour result in dishes that are layered with light, clean flavours, softly marrying to provide a wonderful taste experience. Highlights include Raw White Asparagus with Porcini, Roasted Hazelnuts and aged Parmesan, Monkfish and Coconut Curry with Curry Leaves and Lime, Fritto Misto of Artichokes and Lemon with Mint and Anchovy Vinaigrette, and Chocolate Pannacotta with Blackberries and Warm Honey. Throughout the book, there are fascinating features on the key ingredients, varieties of leaves, tomatoes and apple and how to use them to their best.

This was an okay cookbook. It had interesting anecdotes and a few easy recipes that I would try, but most of those included are recipes that I would never even attempt to try.

Fun to read, but I will likely never be looking for a recipe for guinea fowl or mallard or partridge. Nor have I ever figured out why foods need to be smothered in sauces.
