Jennifer Paterson and Clarissa Dickson Wright venture forth on a Royal Enfield motorbike to discover the delights of traditional home cooking. In this work they have gathered together their favourite recipes, which include dishes for all occasions.
After collecting so many cook books that dress the plate like an art exhibit, it's so nice to find a cook book that is written by real people for real people!
Yes, the food is is at the higher level of "comfort" food, but it's the 1960's come back to life... bubble 'n' squeak, rabbit, pease pudding and the like are all there to take you back gloriously to those far forgotten days.
The recipes are written so that they are easy to follow and it's just like having your Mum at your side giving you advice; no fancy spring-sided cake tins for the Adult Chocolate cake, you just give the bottom of the tin a good "thump".
The book is amusing, well written interspersed with Jennifer & Clarissa's personal memories (which are worth the price of the book alone!) and they did it all with an Royal Enfield (isn't that where the Queen keeps her chickens?)
Sad that Jennifer is no longer with us, but in the hope that Clarissa soldiers on for many more books... I shall definitely be buying them!
