Carbs - Lauren Goodman
From weekday dinners to blow-out brunches, rediscover the joy of the humble carbohydrate.
We've tried to hide it, shoving carbs aside for cauliflower rice and courgetti, but we're not fooling anyone. Carbs are what we want - what we really, really want. We love them because they make every meal better. And anyway, global medical guidelines now say carbohydrates should make up 50% of our daily food intake, and that skipping them could lead to long-term health issues. What have we been thinking? It's definitely time to embrace carbs in all their guises. Macaroni cheese is (practically) a medical replacement.
Whether you've always been a die-hard carb lover, or you'd like to learn to love them again, this book has the recipes you need. There are rice bowls, pizzas, pastas, tacos, toasties, muffins, loaves and oh-so-many ways with the glorious potato, king of the carbs. It's time to put carbs back on the table.
Laura writes about food and travel for the Sunday Times, Eater, Food52, Foodism and The Pool. She has won a Young British Foodies writer prize as well as Young Travel Writer of the Year. Laura didn’t always like food. For years, she ate yoghurt, chocolate cake, pasta with cheese sauce, and not much else. Now, though, she likes thinking deeply about what might be a nice thing to cook and eat, and then cooking and eating it.
