The Cookbook Circle


Roast Chicken and Other Stories - Simon Hopkinson

Season 1, Ep. 3

This time around, we’re discussing the classic cookbook, Roast Chicken and Other Stories by “the food writer’s food writer” Simon Hopkinson.

Find out what we cooked, which dish failed miserably under the influence of wine, Victoria’s adventures with body cheese and whether we think this is worthy of its place as one of the top books on our master list. Do you have a copy of this on your bookshelf? Let us know if you’ve cooked from it and what you think @cookbookcircle on Instagram and Twitter.

We also mention Ed Smith’s exciting new book, Crave: Recipes Arranged by Flavour, to Suit Your Mood and Appetite, which is out in May 2021.
