There are few things better than sharing a heartwarming home-cooked Sunday roast dinner with friends and family, followed by a delicious traditional baked pudding or cold dessert. This book of classic British meals is Just Like Mum Used to Make.

This book features many of the nation’s favourite recipes like Roast Beef and Yorkshire Pudding, Rack of Lamb with a Herb Crust and Roast Chicken with Tarragon. There is also useful advice on what joints to buy, how to prepare them and how to create delicious meals from the leftovers, like Shepherd’s Pie, Coronation Chicken and many others. In addition, there is a mouth-watering collection of Mum’s classic puddings and desserts, from Sticky Toffee Sponge and Bread and Butter Pudding to Eton Mess and Lemon Meringue Pie.
