A fabulous, fabulous cookbook.

I have all the River Cottage books and love them all but this is my favourite. I have cooked more recipes from this book in the couple of weeks I've had it than from any other cookbook I own (and I own a lot).

Plenty of lovely photographs enhanced by the wonderful doodles of Mariko Jesse, lots of recipes, clear instructions, useful suggestions for serving and varying the recipes, advice on storecupboard ingredients and excellent writing make this book a winner.

This is food for every meal and for every day with chapters on breakfast, lunch boxes, bread, meat, fish, veg, fruit and treats. Hugh recommends British grown and produced food wherever possible, sustainable fish and thrifty cuts of meat. I am finding that I don't need to rely on France and Italy for my cheese, oil or vinegar and I certainly don't need to look outside the UK or even my county for fruit and veg, except maybe for a lemon.

So far I have made the drop scones (for breakfast today), flatbreads, pizza, the tomato, chipolata and potato lunch box with mustardy vinaigrette, leftover stew pasties, parsley and pumpkin seed pesto, parsley, walnut and blue cheese pesto, two-root slaw, roast fish fillets with roast potatoes, pea purée, tupperware Mexican chorizo, sticky glazed spare ribs, quince and bramley apple sorbet, chunky fig, date and prune cake, ten minute chocolate chip cookies, lemon sponge pudding and sour dough bread. Every single recipe has been wonderful and the sour dough has changed my life.

Highly recommended.

Like the previous reviewer, I also own a good number of Mr F-W books and love the exposition about all things close to his stomach. However they can be a challenge if you're looking for a bit of quick inspiration or wanting to find a quick trick with the contents of your fridge - more labour of love than labour-saving (first fatten your pig...).

But this is a different kind of book. River Cottage Everyday is quite simply one of the more lovely and useful cookery books that I've been given in a while. It looks gorgeous - elegant layout, witty sketches and scribbles leaping from the pages alongside a photograph on every spread. And the recipes have had me slavering, or was it possibly even slobbering, as I've leafed through. The Lunch(box) section is great - beef with mustardy lentils and mint, pasties and frittata alongside three different 'slaws'. My kids are determined that we must create some of the fresh smoothies and the fishy section with quick fish soups, Thai fish curry and smoked fish and spinach omlette looks easy and yum. Oh and there's a whole section of imaginative (and potentially store cupboard friendly) salads.

I'm really chuffed with this book; whilst it is clearly for people who love food, it's been put together with such obvious enthusiasm that I reckon it's going to be an entertaining and easy ride from fridge to table. Definitely a book to keep by my side this autumn/winter and a cracking alternative to best-beloved tomes like Nigel Slater's Kitchen Diaries or my other firm favourite, Sarah Raven's Garden Cookbook.

As a huge fan of the River Cottage series I was straight on to buying this book to add to the collection (I own every other one) and I was genuinely suprised by really how good this is. I find some of Hugh's other books can be a little preaching, which is fine with me because I agree with what he says but I can see how this makes the series daunting to others. Not so with this book. It is a plain and fairly simple recipe book encouraging families to have a go at eating homemade food. The instructions are fairly easy to follow and almost all of the recipes have a really good sized colour photo. Hugh tackles every meal, snacks, baking and recipies that can be cooked by all the family. There is a wide variety of recipies from the classics to more inventive dishes but there will be something for everyone. The only reason i only give the book 4 stars is I feel that a total novice cook wouldn't find the book as useable but for most people who can crack an egg this is a great start if you want to start cooking and stop relying on ready meals.

I bought this book for my partner as he loves to cook and is pretty good at it too. He does everything from homemade custard from scratch,to pasties/banana loaf and fab spring rolls as well as loads of other things inbetween.So I thought he would like this as we watch River Cottage on tv and often comment on the recipes. First of all, although I feel HFW is truly trying to give us a good fundamental insight into the whys and why nots on everything in the book,for me,I felt it lacked a good few recipes especially on the meat section....I work alongside a butchers counter in a giant supermarket and take home enough different types of fresh meat to feed a small army so I relished the thought of loads of recipes for myself/partner to try as a variation on a theme to what we normally cook. Not so..There were not very many meat recipes in this book which was a little disappointing but there were a lot of good recipes to try even if you have never made them before.

I personally read through the very interesting section of bread and how to make it the overnight way or the quick way. I opted for the quick way as a first attempt to see what it turned out like!! Ureka! I made my very own loaf of bread in around 15mins of my actual intervention,from scratch with no bread maker/food mixer in sight..It takes around 10mins of kneading by hand, but it was lovely and I for one was well chuffed at how it turned out and will be making more and more over the next few weeks.I am however going to invest in a food mixer with dough hook as this does it in 5 mins lol....I never would of attempted it had it not been for this book so thank you HFW for getting me on the road to home bread making...I have just ordered the RC Meat book so look forward to reading that and whipping up a few meaty treats.
