An inspiring collection of velouté recipes from Great British Chefs featuring amongst others pumpkin, white beans, chestnuts and shellfish. A type of blood sausage, black pudding is at once a staple British product, worthy of its place in any full English breakfast, and a controversial ingredient in the same way that offal and sweetbreads are. This collection of traditional Italian recipes is full of well-loved dishes, packed with bold and bountiful flavour, including Bolognese ragù, spaghetti alla carbonara and Sicilian cannoli.
