Our friend and colleague Ed Smith wrote a cookbook! It’s called On the Side: a sourcebook of inspiring side dishes and it does exactly what it says on the tin — there are 140 inspiring side dish recipes (all photographed) and insightful tips to make your pulses, roots, vegetables and greens dazzle in their own right. We particularly like the recipe directory at the back that’ll help you find the perfect accompaniment to whatever your eating in the middle, including cured meats and cold cuts. It’s an essential addition to every kitchen.
To celebrate, we and Ed’s publisher, Bloomsbury, have teamed up and are running a mighty tempting competition.
For a chance to win a signed copy of On the Side AND a Cannon & Cannon tin of brilliant British cured meats, RT and like on our social media channels, and email firstname.lastname@example.org naming the side dish you most like eating with cured meats. Salads, pulses, roots and green veg, we think there are plenty of options.
The competition closes on 5th December, when Ed will select his two favourite entries. We’ve two books and tins to give away.
If you can’t wait that long, On the Side is available now at all good bookshops and online!
