There's something about the title of this book that makes you know you're going to love what's inside, and I do. Of course, it helps that Margot Henderson's food is - appropriately enough - expansive, welcoming and creatively more-ish. I've chosen a rather old-fashioned recipe from it; well, the name is quaint, but the method is modern in its pared-down ease of preparation. Like the author, I have a weakness for ending a meal with a hit of lemon, and this is a particularly luscious way of doing it.
