HASH(0x9e8f1168) out of 5 stars Simply excellent! 20 Aug. 2010

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Rachel Allen turned out to be my favourite chef by far... I discovered her just by chance when I got Home Cooking (100% outstanding) when in London. I knew nothing about her. Now I've become fan number one... What about this book? As always, recipes from Rachel work well, tasty food, clear instructions,etc ;both unique and tradicional recipes are included in her books. You can argue that there are a lot of pictures of her and her family...:) but still this book is simply excellent. A real pitty that and to work independently. If one wants to get her other books... only imports are available.

HASH(0x9e8f1594) out of 5 stars Heartwarming and lovely 5 July 2010
By Scottish Footie - Published on
Format: Paperback
What a nice book of food for the family. This is a bit of a personal quest for me, as I have a couple of picky eaters in our house. Her food is hearty when it needs to be, light when you want light, and seems to have passed muster with most of the kids. She's a good cook, rather than a chef, and I find that makes all the difference in how doable and 'eatable' the recipes are. I picked this up before I knew that she has a show on TV, and it stands alone nicely. More than can be said for some other tv cookbooks I've bought.

HASH(0x9e8f15e8) out of 5 stars Charming and easy 16 Mar. 2012
By Holly - Published on
Format: Paperback
For Americans Rachel Allen's Favorite Food at Home is just a tiny bit "European" without any hard work or tricky ingredients you don't have. The pictures of Rachel and her family are so casual and inviting you wish you were there. The food feels and reads and turns out the same way. Casual and inviting. Kids will eat it! Grandmothers want to make it. And everybody in between can fix it, serve it then sit down with a glass of wine and enjoy the people who are going to help eat it.

Have you seen the recipes before? Probably. Or something quite like them with maybe different names here and there. This book doesn't intend to be more inventive or impressive than other books of it's kind. You're invited you to do it your way if that makes you happy. And that is the point of this cook book. It will make you feel happy. It mixes love right in every recipe.

If you're looking for simple, tasty food this is the book for you. It's not mom's fried chicken or aunt tillie's meatloaf, but interesting food, made accessible.

HASH(0x9e8f1b7c) out of 5 stars Favorite Food at Home 21 April 2010
By Compassion - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this cookbook thinking it was strictly Irish foods but to my dismay it isn't--it includes other ethnic foods but is still a nice cookbook to have. The book is thick & a paperback which makes it hard to leave open when trying a recipe.
