Lawson recently announced great news to U.S. and Canadian audiences, sharing that they now have the option to pre-order her book, which will be available on April 20th, 2021 (via Twitter). Fans are thrilled, as one describes: “Good news. Before all this, I’d travel to the UK and buy food and drinks books I thought were unlikely to be published for the US/Canadian markets. Not this one. I knew this one would be coming. Retaining the original measurements?” Don’t worry, Lawson assures us, “The measurements are in cups, and baking recipes are in cups and metric!”
And even more importantly, what should you cook first when your book arrives? The Fish Finger Bhorta from the new cover tantalizes us with an almost artisan and adult take on our childhood fish fingers. Described by Happy Foodie as a “transformed freezer food,” this dish mixes fish fingers and spinach with a paste made from mustard, chili, garlic, and ginger and finishes it all with pickled onions. For dessert, try the Warm Chocolate Tahini and Banana Brownie. Think of this kind of like a warmed-up moist brownie pudding with a savory nutty sesame twist.
There are so many dishes to choose from, you’ll want to block off some time when your book arrives and meander your way across this tasting journey.
