5.0 out of 5 stars I am full of admiration for your new book 16 Jun 2011
By lucinda
I am full of admiration for your new book; so far
I have tried your roast chicken, home made pesto and the mackerel and
beetroot salad with horseradish recipes. What I like-apart from your
writing throughout which comes across as though you are talking to one
personally or entries from a diary and, of course, the beautiful photos -is the
fact that the recipes are simple to follow, like the ones passed down from
my mother using what is available at different times of the year but
with some magic flourish to them -straight out of your head -which
lifts them to another sphere altogether! Well done!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple recipes for delicious food 31 Aug 2011
By Daisy
While packing for a long stay in a rented house by the beach this summer, I took a chance and left behind all of my tried and true but somewhat tired cook books for my new Recipes for Every Day by Jane Cumberbatch. I'm so glad I did, it was a wonderful, relaxing and memorable holiday due in part to what and how we ate.
Such simple, delicious food we had, much of it from local farms or fishermen. Among our favorite recipes were mozzarella and rocket salad (Cumberbatch urges splurging on buffalo mozzarella, and we were grateful she did), roast veggie couscous, rhubarb crumble (one guest said it was the most delicious thing she had ever eaten), and the book's dressings and sauces and salads served with grilled meat and fish.
As a fan of Cumberbatch's other books (especially Pure Style Living, which lays out her vision of making the home "a more sensual and practical environment" ) and her blog at purestyleonline.com, I was pleased to find that her cookbook offered the same kind of vision through her recipes, which are sprinkled with personal and historical anecdotes and practical suggestions for gardening, sewing and even novel-reading. Not just a cookbook, this is sort of a how-to for living in the moment and enjoying the most that each day has to offer. Having succeeded for the most part this summer, I look forward to cooling temperatures and trying recipes for apple and ginger pudding; chestnut, chorizo and tomato soup and chicken, leek and parsley pie, among others.

This book is not only a pleasure to read but is also wonderful to look at. I love the unfussiness of the recipes and the fact that they are all easy to follow. The author's writing style is relaxed and chatty with lots of bits of useful information apart from the recipes themselves. As a cook book it is great, but thanks to the charming text and the beautiful photographs it is a book to enjoy time and again even if you're not looking for recipe ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous, easy to use, inspirational book 13 Jun 2011
By Gail
This is a great book that should have a place in every home. Although not a very skilled cook myself the recipes are easy to follow with gorgeous pictures to inspire. Helpfully the book is divided into seasons so its very easy to just dip in and out to rustle something up for supper which uses seasonal ingredients. Although a wonderful recipe book this undoubtedly is, its much more than that too with great tips from everything from growing your own herbs, flowers etc to planning the perfect functional kitchen. Ms Cumberbatch has a truly inspiring way of writing and her enthusiasm for all things individual and home made is really infectious. Highly recommended.
