On The Side: A Sourcebook of Inspiring Side Dishes

By Ed Smith

Photographs by Joe Woodhouse

“This book is for anyone who already realises that the best bits of a Sunday roast are the trimmings. And for everyone else too – because you’ll see the light soon.”

This recipe book is a game-changing force within modern-day kitchens, filled with many recipes that focus on the delicious extras that you would normally ignore. Not only is every recipe incredibly easy to make, but you’ll learn the importance of colour, taste and texture, whilst also realising that once in a while rules of thumb are there to be broken.

Written by the founder of a the food blog, RocketandSquash.com, Ed Smith teaches you how to fall in love with fresh and seasonal produce, and how to rustle it up quickly into a dish that is bursting with flavour. With recipes such as Turnip tops with burnt lemon and olive oil and Scorched sweet potatoes with sobrasada butter, Smith teaches you to look beyond the obvious to add spicy depth, or cheesy mustiness.

On The Side helpful has its own Recipe Directories, where you can find a side dish to suit whatever else you are cooking. The recipes are divided into four sections, broadly covering herbs and green vegetables, other vegetables and fruits, roots and potatoes and grains and pulses. Each recipe will offer scents and flavours that will fit easily into any kitchen and every occasion. 


“A lifelong fan of the “bits on the side”, the joyous accompaniments to the main course, I am thrilled to see them taking centre stage. I want to eat every recipe in this book.” Nigel Slater
