If, for you, summer is laid back, uncomplicated and familiar, then this could be just the book to take you through the season of barbecues, picnics and holidays at the bach. Health and family are now foremost for Gault and this collection of recipes nods to these drivers. There’s nothing here that will take you out of even the narrowest comfort zone, and you won’t need to search out exotic ingredients or master challenging new techniques or flavours. But, bolstered by Gault’s considerable experience, it’s a collection of solid recipes that will have your back when the sun’s shining and you don’t want to spend your time on complicated and fussy food. Photography is enticing with colours that pop off the page
