Maria’s new book features 18 of her favourite ingredients, each of which she takes on a ‘flavour journey’. Whether it’s lamb, aubergines or chocolate, Maria provides an insight into how she comes up with her bold flavour combinations and then encourages you to experiment with the recipes and make them your own. Each recipe can be adapted to suit your mood – so meatballs have an Asian or Mediterranean twist depending on which spices or herbs you choose to add. With over 100 recipes and no end of variations, this book will give you confidence in the kitchen and get your creative juices flowing.
