Reviews from The New English Table:

‘An inspiring guide to rediscovering long–lost British ingredients and recipes.' Daily Mail

‘Exceptionally handsome’ Observer

‘Quintessentially English and pretty, this collection is set to expand your knowledge of new ingredients and ways to use them.’ Sainsbury’s Magazine

‘200 completely delectable and original recipes in this inspiring new book.’ YQ Magazine

'Rose manages to turn traditional and unfamiliar ingredients into something special - but without the angst. We love how she recycles leftovers in ingenious ways to make really good food go further. Even nervous cooks will be won over!' SHE

‘A proper kitchen book, made to spend time on the kitchen table…A book that chimes with the ‘new austerity’ ethos of buying wisely and making it last.’ Time Out

We have come to have high expectations from the writings of Rose Prince. The author of "The New English Kitchen", "The New English Table", "The Savvy Shopper","The Good Producer's Guide" and countless food and cookery missives from the weekend Telegraph, has set the bar for a new kind of cookery writing. After nearly two decades of shaping and refining her craft, "Kitchenella" (published by Fourth Estate this month) is, for sure, destined to be her bestseller. She has, in the words of one of my cookery students, "hit the nail on the head".

"Kitchenella" is not just a wonderfully didactic cookery book, it is also delivers a powerful message, a philosophy, a way of life. For too long home cooking, femminine cooking has been unrepresented and undervalued in society and the media that reports on it. This book uncovers what part of the title indicates as "the secrets of women: heroic, simple, nurturing cookery for everyone". Women across the social spectrum are highlighted as valiantly and modestly having to juggle housework, problem solving, the family, preparing supper, doing the shopping as well as coping with a full day at work. The book emphasises and celebrates "the gentle art" of femminine cookery, born out of love, care, wisdom and instinct.

In "Kitchenella" you will find the importance of the female voice; the cultural value of the matriarchal tradition in passing down recipes and ideas. Rose gives us plenty of examples of this, as she was born in a family where the provenance and preparation of food ranked high in the domestic agenda. Her mother was obviously a very creative and accomplished cook, and inspired and taught her six children to follow very high standards across all the domestic arts.

I'm a keen cook and lover of cookery books so when 'Kitchenella' came up on my 'Recommendations' list I thought I'd give it a go, and I'm so pleased I did!
What a fantastic, lovely book. Not only does it have some brilliant recipes, its also a treat to read. Rose Prince's style of writing is informative and entertaining, with anecdotes about her life, children, friends and other chefs.
I defy any cookery loving full time working/mother/girlfriend/wife in todays modern society not to identify with her day to day battle of wanting to cook healthy, wholesome, organic meals for the whole family whilst still doing all the cleaning, washing etc AND working 8-10 hours a day!!
This book is a total joy and I can't recommend it enough. The recipes are simple enough for the less confident cook but also provide good ideas to adapt on for those wanting more of a challenge. The section on children's food has some great ideas to get vitamins and minerals into the more fussier little eater's and I loved the dinner party section, it made me realise i'm not the only lunatic out there trying to be superwoman!

Format: Hardcover
This book has some very good straightforward recipes with simple ingredients which are easy to follow and just right for the busy mum who does not always have time to shop especially.
The only drawback is the lack of illustrations which for an extra cost, would have been very welcome to brighten business of cooking for the family.

This book is a really engaging and generous read, it goes along in a good conversational style and it really is packed with things that you never knew that you needed until you came upon them here. I think that it is quite a good way of expanding a simple home repertoire for the family. I have it in Kindle and hard copy and I have to admit that I like the latter more.

Kitchenella is a very good book. Lots of recipes and lots of interesting bits in between them. Rose Prince is very knowledgeable and I enjoyed reading and trying out her recipes. A lovely book to own.

I like this book - I can sit and read it as a book, as there's a lot of conversational chat in between the recipes. I have used several of the recipes, and been pleased with the results - I will do them again.

Two small things I'm not so keen on: some of the instructions refer you to other recipes on different pages, so you need the book open at two different places at once; and the list of recipes at the start of each chapter doesn't give page numbers. As I said, just minor problems. I will be trying lots more of the ideas in this book.
