Yes! As an old hippy, I'm very pleased that Hugh F-W seems to be espousing a bit of veggiedom and hope that many of his fans will follow suit.

PS I couldn't think of where I'd heard of orzo recently until I picked up The Secret History and there it was! On the page I fell asleep reading last night - orzo salad at the funeral. Synchronicity, I suppose.

Yum, I love orzo - had it first in NZ for some reason where food is better even if it's supposedly 'European'. This looks great, am going to give it a try
Did you see pic of HFW linked to from yarnstorm the other day? Off the cover of OFM I think, slightly dubious way to present himself...

Lyn

This sounds wonderful, I love mushrooms & risotto so I'm keen to give this version a try. I have the book on order at the library so I can't wait to try a few recipes.

Liz

Waitrose has a very good recipe for Orzo and Squash. My teenage girls think it is one of the best meals they can have. I thoroughly recommend it. I don't know if I'm allowed to post the link

Rebecca

My family and I love orzo with onion, garlic, and spinach sauteed in olive oil, then layered into the bowl with the orzo and feta, olives, and parm. cheese, salt and pepper to taste. It's fast, quite healthy ( you can adjust the amounts of "healthy" and "not so" at will), good hot or cold, and open to many adaptations. Highly recommended!

Cornflower

That sounds delicious! Many thanks, Rebecca.

Cornflower

Is it this one, Liz? http://www.waitrose.com/content/waitrose/en/home/recipes/recipe_directory/o/orzo_pasta_with_squash.html If so, that does look good. Many thanks for letting me know.

Cornflower

Do try the bread recipe when you get the book, Lyn. I used it to make rolls today and they were very good.

Cornflower

Have just seen it!

Cornflower

Oh well, if there are no baked goods in the book for our 'cakes' post, at least I can make that salad!
