Product Description

Review

"Neil Perry is one of the very few chefs whom I would consider to be a gastronomic 'global citizen.' With "The Food I Love" we get to experience his formidable knowledge and nonpareil sensitivity regarding the pleasures of the table, but in this case geared for those who love to cook at home. A tip of the hat to you, Neil, for this incredible work reminds me of why I got into this field in the first place!"-- Charlie Trotter

Format: Hardcover
Not only is this a fabulous cookbook, but it is also an absolutely beautiful book to have on your bookshelf. The recipes and photographs are mouth-watering. There is a lot of attention to detail which is really helpful - I have learnt lots of new tips and skills. It is a gorgeous book full of contemporary, as well as traditional, recipes, for all hours of the day, and every day of the year.

This book is simple and easy to use but also beautiful and stylish. The recipes are to die for! I thought it was quite expensive and now think it is a bargain! Everything I have cooked so far has worked amazingly and the little tips all the way through have changed the way I think about food. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone. It is so much more than just a cookery book. Neil Perry is my new food hero!

Like the other reviewers, I think this book has fantastic content - recipes that work very well, and lots of ideas for adaptations. I've been cooking various cuisines (at home) for 30 years and thought my technical skills and knowledge were pretty good. But, I've been able to pick up a great many very useful tips from this book - even how to do a perfect boiled egg - seriously, try it!

The only place I've found this book to be less than perfect - apart from the weight! - is in the index. I wanted a recipe for tuna urgently and, unbelievably, Perry's book didn't have one. Later, reading through, I found excellent content on grilled tuna with pesto - lovely! Yet, there was no entry in the index under tuna, it was - wait for it - indexed under "grilled". I don't know how many similar omissions there are, so I'm reading the whole thing and making notes. But, this is such a fundamental flaw that I am deducting a star for it. Hopefully, a second edition will do a bit of work on cross-referencing the index. Otherwise, a great book everyone should have.

I saw this cookbook reviewed in the newspaper and loved the look of the food. When my own copy arrived it really did not disappoint - it's massive and full of delicious recipes. I was surprised at how much useful info there was about getting your oven to the right temperature and how to cook meat and fish properly, so that was an unexpected bonus. This is the perfect book to give as a present - it's beautiful and practical.

This was recommended by a friend who is an excellent cook, so I treated myself to it for Christmas. It's one of the best cookbooks I've read for some time, and I have a lot of cookbooks.

So far everything I've cooked from it has been good. I don't go for some of the more pacific-fusion aspects of the contents, but for me its strength lies in is in very refined but regular, plainer home cooking. Beautifully presented and laid out, good value.
