About the book
Sudy of a Spring Meal
by Thom Eagle
published by Quadrille, April 2018, £16.99 Hardback
“Thom Eagle’s writing is a pure joy – effortless and unaffected. He is easily one of my favourite writers, and this book deserves to become a classic.” Olia Hercules, author of Mamushka and Kaukasis
“THE THING TO DO IS JUST BEGIN. THE QUESTION, OF COURSE, IS WHERE?”
So opens Thom Eagle’s beautiful hymn to a single early Spring meal. A cookbook without recipes, First, Catch is an exclusive invitation to journey through the mind of a chef – to stand next to Thom in the kitchen as he muses on the very best way to coax flavour out of an onion (slowly, and with more care than you might expect), or considers the crucial role of salt in the creation of the perfect assembly for whisperings of green shoots and leaves.
In an era when we are so distracted that we eat almost without realising what we’ve just put in our mouth, Thom Eagle presents food to savour, gently steering the cook back towards simplicity, confidence and, above all, taste.
Thom is a contributor to Locavore and part of the team behind the restaurants Ducksoup and Rawduck. He is a Young British Foodies-nominated pickler. He is currently based at Little Duck in East London and blogs at In Search of Lost Thyme. First, Catch is his first book.
