Beautiful book!, 17 April 2013
A beautifully written, and photographed, book that made me proud to have a Brighton connection! But, rather than being overly Brighton-centric (no seagull burgers or seaside smugness thankfully), it's more a celebration of tasty food, that happens to sometimes feature local produce (though I imagine you could easily get the equivalents anywhere). I guess that's where the Brighton part plays its role: the approach has a joyful sense of freedom and creativity, doesn't take itself too seriously and above all the content is exciting and vibrant. And it's got a frickin' Brighton Rock cake - what more could you want?
I thought it might be cakes all the way but there were enough savoury recipes to give my teeth a break and liked the way the book is divided up into interesting segments - you get food by the seasons as well as sections for birthdays, canapés, lunch boxes and some speedy suppers too. A few look a bit too delicate for my fat fingers but you've got to have something to aspire too!
