A brand new way to cook—more than 120 recipes presented in visual formRosie Ramsden has invented a whole new way of planning meals: it's called The Recipe Wheel. She takes one simple, core recipe—like risotto—that sits at the center of its own recipe wheel. From there lead spokes or threads to new, more developed recipes—select your perfect dish by occasion, budget, or time. Each wheel is like a mind map, bringing flavors together and encouraging the reader to mix and match, adding to their own creativity and cooking skills. A basic roast chicken inspires dishes like Chicken, Mango and Cashew Nut Curry; white bread goes into Beetroot Panzanella or Butterbean, Garlic and Thyme on Toast. Get creative with risotto with Barley Risotto with Chestnut and Savoy. A simple sponge cake becomes Three-tier Vanilla Raspberry Cake, and custard is transformed into Rhubarb Treacle Creme Brulee or Peach and Amaretto Trifle. This innovative cookbook turns the idea of the traditional recipe book on its head. Includes metric measures.


"The Recipe Wheel is so ingenious that I found myself wondering why no one had done it before. Rosie Ramsden's recipes are clear and intelligent and her writing is elegant and impeccably well-mannered. A real breath of fresh air."  —Russell Norman, author, Polpo

"With recipes that cry out to be cooked and a voice that is gentle and calming Rosie Ramsden is your new best friend in the kitchen' - Diana Henry, author, A Change of Appetite
