1.0 out of 5 stars Review of "Harvest", 4 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Harvest (Hardcover)
I found this book more of a 12th century epic poem than a novel; too much description and characters without any depth or indeed interaction amongst one another. I found the book devoid of emotion; an author too pleased with his endless use of literary tools and therefore unable to examine his characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgia, 12 July 2009
How fashionable it is now to laugh at England' first, timid attempts at opening its doors to world cuisine. Many of the recipes here are delicious, even if dated, and are bound to make a comeback. This is a charming book, easy to read and follow, and a great excuse to have prawn cocktail, steak diane and a wonderful black forest gateau!
