Format: Hardcover
Inside we find old favourites such as 'Chicken Curry', 'Vegetarian Lasagne' and 'Treacle Tart' mingling with the lesser well-known 'Leek and Sweetcorn Roulade', 'Crock of Mussels in Thai Cream Broth' and 'Roasted Saddle of Rabbit with Chicken and Mushroom Filling', along with some 'tweaks' - generally with a 'secret' ingredient - such as is found in Kevin's version of 'Prawn Cocktail' and his 'Classic Italian Meatballs with Spaghetti and Tomato Sauce'.

From the back cover:-

'Chef and father of three, Kevin Dundon shares the secrets of his favourite family meals. His mouth-watering recipes and straightforward instruction will show you and your family that great, home-cooked food need never be a chore.'
Kevin also runs 'Dunbrody House' in County Wexford, Ireland along with the 'Dunbrody Cookery School' and is also a regular cookery writer, so great credentials to turn such talent into a first class cookery book!

Durable hardboard covers, with dust-jacket, open to 190 shiny quality pages, split over main chapters:-

1. One-pot wonders (pg 8-31)
2. Quick & easy suppers (pg 34-71)
3. Roasts & family meals (pg 76-104)
4. Leftovers (pg 108-126)
5. Accompaniments (pg 130-140)
6. Desserts (pg 145-183)

sandwiched between an introduction and 4-page index which is enhanced to indicate illustrations.
Also included is a useful UK/US glossary.

Each chapter simply opens in a 2-page spread with relevant snapshot pictures on one page and a short relevant paragraph on the other.
Then it is straight into the unpretentious recipes which are clearly laid out with the title, an opening note, the number of servings, the list/s of ingredients (metric, imperial and cups) and a numbered method.

This is an excellant cookbook with easy to follow recipies. I have cooked alot of recipies from the book. Good pictures and easy to follow. Alot of good family everyday recipies that you can cook without too much effort. It will be used loads of times and not left on the shelf like some cookbooks.

Format: Hardcover
This book does what it says on the tin-good, honest, family recipes (plenty of roasts, stews, etc). Easy-to-source ingredients accompanied by clear directions make this book easily accessible to beginner cooks but there are plenty more challenging recipes for those with a bit more experience. The reason why it did not get a full five stars is because not all of the recipes are accompanied by photos. Good luck and thanks!!

More Meat and Potatoes with style 21 April 2010
By I break for nerds - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I love this cookbook. It has become a family standard. Not only is it full of easy to make recipes to please any group but has a section of recipes for using your left overs. Smart and practical and well worth every penny. These are the recipes that I fall back on to impress and comfort.

I love his recipes for;
Pan fried breast of chicken with wild mushrooms and spinach
Turkey with sage and onion stuffing
Roasted leg of lamb with marmalade crust
Salt Beef and cabbage (took St Pat's Corned beef on to my family's everyday favorite's list)
Savory Bread and pudding - with goat cheese and wild mushrooms
Lamb and rosemary

Forget the review, I am hungry now. Listen this is just a plain wonderful cookbook. Buy it, you won't regret it. If you can find a copy of his other cookbook....Full On Irish (a little higher end and fancier recipes), buy it too. So very good that his soup recipes alone make it worth the cost.

Easy to follow recipes, great cookbook 29 Nov. 2009
By Veronique N. Deblois - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I had the pleasure of dining at Chef Dundon's Raglan Road Pub in Orlando and got this amazing cookbook there. The chef speaks a language that any pro of home cook can understand and provides simple recipes that sound and look beautiful. Highly recommend getting this cookbook if you're looking for simple recipes that can be easily replicated at home for your families.
