Karen loves cooking traditional food - be it Mediterranean, Middle Eastern or comforting English baking - but adds something extra to make it look and taste special: kibbeh, normally made with lamb, is a revelation when ocean trout is used instead; a dollop of smoky eggplant completely transforms a piece of chargrilled tuna; and a classic cheesecake becomes an elegant dessert when paired with a spoonful of wine-soaked berries.Based on Karen's phenomenally popular column in Sunday Life magazine, this collection of 150 recipes, beautifully photographed by Earl Carter, offers the inspiration needed to turn the evening meal into a special occasion, every night of the week.
