Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I do agree with the previous review - this is a lovely collection of recipes conveniently organised by the calendar. I have cooked a couple of the June recipes - broadbeans (cooked unpodded with ham which was new for me - and absolutely delicious) and roast welsh lamb which I can lay my hands on. Instructions are very clear and specific.

But it is not a cookbook that requires access to Welsh products (prawn laksa anyone?)in order to use and enjoy. There are many very straightforward - and one or two more complex recipes - but they all look very practical and delicious. I can see myself using it throughout the year: apple bread and Caribbean pepper pot are on the list for next week.

Physically it is an attractive book - well illustrated. Perhaps a tiny bit too much text and not quite enough recipes but that is a small quibble. Handsomely illustrated cover - I am of the old school, however, I prefer a dustjacket for my cookery books but again not an important point. The recipes are the thing and these are excellent.

Format: Hardcover
As a proud Welshwoman I am always on the look out for exciting Welsh cookery books. My excitement was doubled when I noticed that here was a book not only about cooking in Wales - but it was also by one of my favourite cookery writers! (I loved her European Peasant Cookery).

The book is not brimfilled with the traditional Welsh recipes I had hoped for - but there are enough...... along with many exciting additions........ it's the sort of book that has you drooling within the first couple of pages. Partly because you want to eat the food - and partly because you are so very eager to cook the food. (Not sure I'll be trying the squirrel or snail recipes anytime soon though...... but never say never).

The recipes in general do not require a cupboard full of expensive and hard to source ingredients. (I do wish cookery writers would realise that we do not all live in big cities with access to Asian/Mediterranean Grocers).

Format: Hardcover
This was a wonderful Christmas present,a journey through the year with recipes and family life, by writer Elizabeth Luard. I had resolved to read it a month at a time. However, April led into May, and June looked interesting.... hence, I have just finished it in April!
I particularly enjoyed the introductory sections to each month, about what is happening in her garden and in the countryside around the old house of Brynmerheryn, in Wales.I loved hearing about her grandchildren, and liked the different sort of illustrations, the atmospheric photographs, the little water colours which adorn the pages.There are some attractive cookery photographs, but I would have liked some more, as I like each recipe to have a photograph with it. However, the cost of this would probably have been too much, together with the requirement to make the book longer as a result.The author's friends and family, who she cooks for, must have a wonderful time when visiting her. I shall certainly be reading more books by this author. Thank you, Elizabeth Luard, for a lovely day.
PS And Yes, there are some great sounding recipes!

Format: Hardcover
If you want to cook real food to give yourself and others nourishment of mind, body and spirit, then this is the book to buy. It is a joy to read, to look at Luard's gentle watercolors, and from which to cook any number of delicious dishes. With her track-record of cooking books, magazine articles, and other writing, Elizabeth Luard has established herself in the first-rank of not just food writers like the famed Elizabeth David and Jane Grigson, but that rarer thing: a multi-talented person who knows how to open her heart to living whether it is about food, herself, or the many places where she has lived and worked. How lucky to be one of her friends or grandchildren. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to cook honest food and have fun along the way by sharing Luard's enthusiasm for life. A woman to admire. A writer to read. A book to cook from wherever you live. Buy it.
