What is a roast? Much more than a hunk of meat cooked in a certain way. A roast may conjure up images of vast joints of beef turning on spits in front of huge fires, of venison poached from under the gamekeeper s nose, of medieval boards groaning under the weight of peacocks, swans and sucking pigs, of Christmas geese and turkeys, and of convivial Sunday lunch. In short, a roast is an idea of plenty, of feasting, and of occasion.

Acclaimed cook and food historian Laura Mason presents delicious beef, lamb, pork and chicken roasts, plus traditional recipes for turkey, goose, duck, game birds, rabbit and hare, and venison too. All the best accompaniments and vegetable dishes are included, from essential Yorkshire puddings and roast potatoes to sauces and stuffings. 

Everything you need to know about sourcing, preparing and roasting quality meat is explained and most importantly, the best part of any roast is often the leftovers, and there are mouth-watering ideas for soups, sandwiches, salads and pics.
