I have now finished the Cooking in Advance chapter!!
I have to say, I think that this chapter is my favourite out of the whole book. I mean, it's just got such a high proportion of hit recipes! Those stews! That chick pea soup! The trifles! The baked ham pasta!
The only ones I didn't like were the South Beach black bean soup, the incredibly feral pheasant stew, and the baked spiced aromatic plums. 3 not so good recipes out of 26, (or 23 out of 26 great recipes). That's an 88.46% success rate. Those are pretty good odds.
Here's a look back at all of them...

I really, really love Nigella's stew recipes. In fact, recently I've been craving stew pretty badly... but I've already done them all! I'll have to console myself with another delicious roast for lunch today. *Sigh*... life is tough.
