One of the Food Programme's Cookbooks of the Year 2021!
"Good to eat" recipes indeed, as well as lots of things which are "good to know". David wears his knowledge lightly - about the science and nutrition of food - so that the focus can remain on making the food delicious. It's all there, though, for those who want the 'why's as well as the yums...' Yotam Ottolenghi'
'Good to Eat is full of tasty morsels of both knowledge and recipes that you and all your gut microbes will love! A fantastic book.' Tim Spector'
'People often think that healthy eating means restricting foods or counting calories, but for me this form of 'healthy eating' was not sustainable. Plus, it was dull. I hated cutting out the food I loved best - bread, cake, pizza, Yorkshire puddings! That realisation changed how I approached food.
Food should be healthy, but so should our relationship with food. So instead of depriving myself of my favourite dishes, I found new, easy ways to make them better for me.' - David Atherton
GOOD TO EAT is a book that indulges our craving for baked goods, filling foods and sustaining meals but leaves us feeling good. With a few simple tweaks - like using root veg to minimise the use of sugar or trying a plant-based alternative - you can enjoy what you love to eat while nourishing your body.
Food is one of the longest relationships of our lives and what we put on the plate should be more important than what we are leaving off it. With 100 exciting new recipes from the 2019 Great British Bake Off winner GOOD TO EAT promises fresh and filling suppers, sweet treats with a healthy spin, hearty salads to pick and mix, soups and more. David will leave you eating and living well.
