High expectations but disappointing, 29 Aug. 2011
Heard about this book from a radio interview with the author when it first came out, and being an avid believer in the same principles as Rose Prince, I bought it eagerly with high expectations. However, I was very disappointed when I tried out some of the recipes and discovered that they were very plain, not very inspiring, the lack of photographs makes it very dry reading and many of the recipes have ingredients that can only be bought from specialist outlets in major cities like London and Manchester. Living in the "sticks" (the Staffordshire Moorlands), and growing my own veg. and keeping my own chickens and ducks means that access to these markets is limited. I will occasionally dip into this book as a reference tool but a far better book is Sarah Raven's Garden Cookbook. Now that is inspiring!
