The multi-talented Fearne Cotton has been gracing our TV screens since the tender age of 15 and appears on a number of high profile shows including Celebrity Juice and Comic Relief.
However, it is only recently that this healthy-living vegetarian has shared her love of cooking with the nation. Following on from the success of her bestselling book ‘Cook Happy, Cook Healthy’, Fearne has now released a new book – Cook. Eat. Love. – packed with her favourite recipes.
With chapters covering fresh and delicious breakfasts to start the day well; simple, sumptuous lunches to enjoy at home and on the run; and comforting dinners that show you how to eat the rainbow, Cook. Eat. Love. provides over 100 recipes that will have you eating happily and healthily at every meal-time. One of her favourites is avocado cream with chargrilled cucumber.
She explains where she got her inspiration: “One summer in Ibiza a friend of ours cooked us up a big, beautiful dinner using local ingredients. The meal that he served up was unusual and delicious, so I went about trying to recreate it as soon as I got home to England. I had never even thought about charring cucumber before I had this dish, but now it’s become one of my fave ways to eat it. Cucumbers can be terribly boring and are reduced to a sandwich filler at the best of times. This dish brings life to the humble cucumber and works perfectly with the creamy avocado. This is a great starter if you have mates over for dinner and is also perfect as a little mid-morning snack.”0
