I have loved Peter Gordon’s food since I was a wee young thing - and that is a very, very long time ago! (Well, maybe not quite that young, as I believe I am older than him!) Everything in his restaurants or his books has the particular mark of his genius: a mixture of exuberant culinary curiosity, essential generosity and a bold but sensitively attuned palate. I’m so very happy to see Eating Well Everyday reissued after its first publication six years ago: it’s such a cosy, just-cook-me-now compilation of recipes. I’ve chosen this Chicken and Peanut Coconut Curry from it as it perfectly exemplifies the full-on flavour and laid-back style of the book.
