Simply Good Taste

Peter's ambition is to give the Lake Distinct the same profile as Padstow (Rick Stein). He gives his homely yet imaginative style of cooking an emphasis of lifestyle and the Lakes to produce six chapters of recipes that combine local produce with other influences: Out & About (includes Sweet garlic chutney and local Brie on foccacia bread, Japanese beef wrap and Espresso fruit bread); Family ( includes Pizza with the kids and Lemon syllabub), Boys' Weekend (includes Black bacon butties and Salmon by the lake), Cafe (includes Posh fish fingers and Blueberry and passion fruit cake), BBQ (includes Lakeland burger and Baked sweet potatoes with chilli and cumin butter), Something Special (includes Porcini and roast garlic soup, local venison with potato fondant and port and juniper sauce and White chocolate ice cream with Grasmere gingerbread).
