  • Former Pub Chef of the Year, Justin Brown’ first cook book, Dining Through The Seasons is aimed at the aspirational home cook, the book is full of seasonal starters, mains and desserts to help you prepare fantastic food that’s not only delicious and simple to make, but is also in season. Justin has been planning the book for most of his career. “I’d had the idea for this book for some time. My friends and family are always hosting gatherings and often ask me for ideas and recipes – so this is as much for them as anyone else! Everyone likes to cook seasonally, but I wanted to create something you could turn to for simple yet amazing recipes whatever the season. The great thing about this book is most dishes can be prepared in advance – meaning, by the time your guests arrive, all your hard work is done! It’ll give you more time to spend actually enjoying the occasion – and less time panicking about it!”
