Adrian Richardson's philosophy is simple: things taste better when they're homemade.

Baking your own bread, creating fresh cheeses or tomato sauce from scratch, making salami and sausages, cooking chutneys and preserves, mixing your own oils and vinegars, smoking or curing fish and meat, and turning out fresh pasta... in The Good Life, Adrian shows you how to do all this, and more.

This is back-to-basics living at its best, with delicious family dishes such as Spaghetti Marinara, Barbecued Lamb Koftas or Sticky Pork Ribs, nibbles and drinks for picnics and summer parties, ice creams and sorbets, delicate cakes and warming winter puddings, such as Caramelised Apple or Coffee, Prune and Frangelico. There are sweet tarts and savoury pies, with golden, flaky, homemade pastry.

Containing 10 fully illustrated, step-by-step Masterclasses and beautiful photography of the dishes, the vegie patch and lots of outdoor fun, this feel-good and comprehensive cookbook celebrates living through the seasons, will help you reconnect with food at its source, and remind you of the simple pleasure in making good, honest food for family and friends.
