5.0 out of 5 stars Practically perfect in every way 3 April 2014
By JennyB
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Maybe a little too prompt having just purchased this earlier today - but it makes really great reading, and I've been reading solidly since I downloaded it - couldn't put it down, and just know hours and hours of pleasure ahead.

I love the approach which trials and tests lots of different recipes from different sources, for the same thing. A bit like speed dating - sifting through the rubbish to get to the good bits!

I'm a fan of the original 'Perfect' and the Guardian column - and whilst this doesn't have all the detail of the column [but easy enough to check these out] it takes on board some of the criticism made of 'Perfect' by going into a bit more detail - and this does make for a much better read.

The commentary is honest, human and well written - and I particularly like the way that reasons are given for why bits are added or omitted from the recipes. As I read, I found myself testing out the comments and suggestions against my own mental bank of recipes, and own trial and error experiences. At times I thought - yes - that's what I've been doing wrong, in others such as the crab linguine - the addition of the brown meat to the sauce is what makes my Tobagan crab and dumpling recipe so great, but I hadn't thought to replicate the approach in other dishes, and, other times I thought - no - sacrilege! But that's the real beauty of the book - and the skill of the author in challenging you to find your own version perfect recipe and tests the versions you think are already practically perfect - avoiding being in any way condescending or patronising.

I can't wait to try out some of the recipes, and probably most important of all, her recipes always work!

5.0 out of 5 stars ButI really enjoy her approach 13 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'd not come across Felicity Cloak, we can no longer afford to take the Guardfian. ButI really enjoy her approach, and the light hearted way she writes. Also great to see some attempt to assess the relative merits of other published cooks. Made me want to instantly get cooking. Her scones were lovely.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect kitchen companion 13 May 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Felicity Cloake has found a niche market. This is a gorgeous and vital supplement to her companion book "Perfect". Taking simple and useful dishes, she has researched the literature, tested thoroughly and come up with practical ideas for making the best. Her commentaries are a delight, too.

As Mary Berry says of her own recipes "Follow the recipe the first time and then alter it to suit yourself".

But, you may not need to change anything. Even if you do not ultimately follow her recipes exactly you will find so much good sense here that you will become for your family and friends a better, or even perfect, cook
