Book Description

5 Oct 2009
Putting food on the table for the family quickly and economically doesn't mean you have to compromise on quality. This book shows how Hugh's approach to food can be adapted to suit any growing, working family, or busy young singles and couples for that matter. Breakfast, baking, lunchboxes, quick suppers, healthy snacks, eating on the move and weekend cooking for the week ahead - all these, and more, are covered in River Cottage Everyday. As Hugh says: 'I have honed the River Cottage approach to food over a decade now, and I believe passionately that it is relevant to everybody, every day. I intend to tempt and charm you towards a better life with food - with a set of simply irresistible recipes that just happen to be seasonal and ethical.'

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous 9 Oct 2009
By Getoka
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant down-to-earth daily inspiration 5 Oct 2009
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A real family gem, without any preaching. 4 Oct 2009
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, a decent cook book! 9 Oct 2009
Over the years I bought enough Cook books to wallpaper my entire house at least twice with their pages. Most of them feature recipes with tons of ingredients you either never heard of, are not freely available and blow your budget. Most celeb chefs don't seem to realise that while you cook dinner, you supervise childrens homework, break up arguements and stop the dog from raiding the bin ect. This is my first River Cottage recipe book, but definately not the last. We've tried a fair few recipes already and they were all lovely, easy to follow. Most recipes are more then suitable to cook during the week and won't blow you budget. I can confidently recommend this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great FW book 17 Oct 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As always FW has some great recipes with the twist this time being that they are generally simple and quick to make. I particularly enjoyed the lunch-box section to get a fresh set of ideas of how to turn left overs into lunch for work next day. The biggest disappoint was that this was released at roughly the same time as Nigel Slater's Tender and only a couple of months after Rick Stein's Far Eastern Odyssey which means I just have far to much choice!
