Description of this Book

Whether it is a steaming bowl of your favourite pasta after being caught in a downpour or a crisp salad on a hot day, we all know that food has the power to restore, revive and rejuvenate. But it isn't just about the food on the plate: it's about how it got there. Cooking also has the power to turn a day (or a week, or a month, or a year) around. Focussing the mind on one activity and making the disparate collection of ingredients on your kitchen counter into something delicious can make the biggest (or the smallest) of problems seem far away. And what's more, what you end up with serves a purpose. It nourishes you inside and out. Stirring Slowly celebrates time spent in the kitchen. Wile away a happy hour or more folding a batch of pork and prawn gyozas, kneading pastry for a chicken and leek pie, or flipping some apple, ricotta and hazelnut pancakes. There are recipes for every occasion, but, most of all, there are recipes for those everyday in-between times when, actually, you just want to cook something, and you want it to be really good.

Author's Bio

Georgina Hayden is a food writer and stylist from North London. Growing up above her grandparents' Greek Cypriot taverna in Tufnell Park, she developed a love of cooking from the recipes passed down to her. As a teenager she ran a stall at a farmers' market and worked in restaurants, before studying Fine Art at university. Her passion for food landed her a job as a food writer and stylist on various food magazines, until she joined Jamie Oliver's food team where she worked for twelve years. She now writes, develops and styles for magazine, books, television and campaigns. She also writes an online family food blog- georginahayden.com. Georgina's work is inspired by her family, her heritage and her love of travel. There is nothing she treasures more than cooking with her mum and her yiayia (grandmother). She documents her food adventures on her two instagram accounts @georgiepuddingnpie and @peaandthepod. Her first book, Stirring Slowly, was published in 2016, and Taverna is her second.
