Product Description

Review

'The levels of inventiveness and sophistication of the 100 recipes gathered here leave you goggle-eyed at the things ordinary people get up to...' -- Carolyn Hart, Telegraph Magazine

'From cakes and bakes to pies and biscuits via a handful of dishes that folks up and down the country have made their own, this is a wonderfully eclectic collection of flavourful dishes.' Rated 9 out of 10 stars. -- Ben Keenan, Bury Free Press

'The Food Glorious Food official book is crammed full of heart-warming recipes from the show - including all finalists' dishes and the winning recipes. Divided into regions, the book is full of the food that we all love to eat and want to know how to cook. Old favourites like Bread and Butter Pudding, Cornish Pasties and Bakewell Tart sit alongside new and inventive fusions of flavours that simply have to be tasted.'
--Tasty

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I was a little dumbfounded when I looked through this book of the "best recipes" in Britain.

Firstly, there is the foreword by Simon Cowell ... yes THAT Simon Cowell; and I do have to wonder what he knows about cooking. Of course he knows a money making scheme when he sees one and cookery and recipe books are big income producers.

Secondly, why haven't they done them in some logic order - they are in regional order which might be ok if you have seen the programme and want to cook dishes from a particular region (such as the South East or North West) but even in these regional "chapters" there is no order to the dishes with deserts being mixed in with the main courses.

Then there are the dishes. I have to wonder if these were truly the best dishes in the country.

"Brussel Sprout, Chestnut and Coconut Soup" (page 144) - my mum loves brussel sprouts so we tried this out. It stunk the house out for days, and worse than that it has put my mum off brussel sprouts. The mention of them makes her feel sick.

On page 230 there is a recipe made from the offal and lights of pigs they are truly horrendous. The dog wouldn't go near them and not even the carrion birds would try these dreadful things.

And so on.

There are some good recipes - apple pie, bakewell tart and so on but I already have well used family recipes for these; and I have to ask when you have a classic dish which is almost universally liked why mess with it!

Sorry to say that I was left feeling disappointed by this recipe book.

Not having seen the TV series I was hoping that there would be some nice surprices in the book, but I am quite disappointed in the recipes to be honest.

The book itself seems quite disorganized and disjointed, instead of the recipes being arranged by ingredient or starter/main/desert, the are organized by region. Now although this seems like a good idea to fit in with the show, it's not very practical when your trying to locate a specific recipe, without having to trawl through the index.

The variety and quality of the dishes did leave me a little crestfallen, as after all these are supposed to the the best us British have to offer. They range from the dishes everyone knows how to make such as victoria sponges, bread and butter puddings and cottage pies, to the dishes I'm not sure anyone would want to make! Such as Brussels sprout, chestnut and coconut soup, spiced lentil vegetable cakes and smoked salmon cheesecake (not to mention the recipe that uses pigs lungs, heart, liver and kidneys!)

To be honest it's not my favorite cookbook and I highly doubt I will use it on a regular basis. I think it would be better suited to someone who watched the TV series, and wanted to make a specific recipe they saw on there. I much prefer the The Great British Farmhouse Cookbook (Yeo Valley)

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I hadn't seen the TV series accompanying this book, but I have a passion for food and a keen palate. That said, I have to ask who chose these recipes as the nation's favourites.

Some of the recipes are classic recipes with a twist, but it's very much subjective as to whether or not these twists add to or detract from the original recipe - I would have to say that the recipes should be left as they are!

The few recipes I tried were nothing special and I wouldn't replace any of my favourite meals with them.

Some of the recipes, such as bobotie; I've never heard of them and neither had anyone I spoke to, so it begs the question: Who selected these recipes?

The foreword by Simon Cowell, with its accompanying photograph, made me feel like this was part of a cynical marketing machine and only put me off this book even more.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As cookbooks go, this one isn't the longest, but it does have the novelty of having been associated with a TV programme. Having not watched the programme, I was a bit mystified as to what was behind it, but collected here are 100 recipes from different parts of Britain, family favourites put forward by the public and tested in a series of programmes.
There is a wide range of ingredients and a wide range of cultures reflected within the pages. British Asians contribute various curry-based recipes, there's an intriguing meat/fruit combo from a Polish lady now based in the UK, and the Caribbean community contribute too.

The recipes are placed within the book in the context of the programmes in which they appeared - a programme from each of the regions represented. So a recipe for scones is placed next to one for savoury main courses. The best way to find something specific is to use the good index which has the name and page of a recipe listed under one of its main ingredients. Where there are several main ingredients there are therefore several entries. A chicken and leek pie is listed under chicken and leek, for example.

Nobody in the book is well known beyond a fairly local level, but they all are given a photo - a still from the programme, perhaps - along with some biographical details. There's a wide range of ages too - with a toddler being given credit for one egg-based recipe.

This will doubtless appeal to fans of the programme more than others but it has its own merits as a cook book. Recommended
