Tom is a cook and writer. He currently runs the kitchen at The Eagle Public House in London, and contributed to their book Big Flavours and Rough Edges in 2001. Tom learned his craft as a youngster.

Format: Hardcover
What a wonderful cook book!
This book is full of what used to be known as "nursery food", purely for comfort eating, but in the pages of this book, we learn very early not to sit in judgement. Just because the food does not originate at some isolated Italian Mediteranean location doesn't mean that it's 'bad' or 'junk'. In fact, good British food was always crying out for a champion and this book does the job admirably.
Eat Welsh Rabbit, Lancashire Hotpot or beef and ale casserole and eat it with relish! It's how we should have been brought up to eat and it's GOOD.

this is the way I cook - soup to feed the nation- casseroles to fill the hungry & everything I've tried to pass on - a wonderful book to give to everyone from 5 to 80 to enjoy

I love it, my husband loves it and so do my kids. You don't really need any other book for family cooking. We eat the melting moments literally in a moment LOL

I knew there was a bread pudding that wasn't a 'bread and butter pudding' and that wasn't loaded with eggs (yuck), one that my mother used to make, and here I found it, in this unassuming but essential book. My copy is all splodged and cracked down the spine, it is the most used on my shelf.

What a wonderful and increadibly useful cook book. From instant meals to something a little more challenging, it all in here and can make anyone look like a real chef!!! I love the way the book gives you ideas on how to modify traditional recipies and the wonderful colour photographs would make anyone's mouth water.
