5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal present for a man!, 4 Dec 2013
I have enjoyed Tim Hayward's writing and appearance in other media over the years and this book has a stack of suggestions, instructions and recipes that appeal to anyone who has an interest in creating or transforming their food. There are a load of ideas that you may only try a couple of times, like creating a smoker in your back garden, but there are enough things in here that you can do on an 'everyday' basis. An ideal present for Christmas, I'd be asking for it if I hadn't already bought it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great germination rate!, 13 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these from this company at the beginning of the year and at the same time a range from different suppliers. These seeds had a great germination rate and are now a few weeks off cropping. This is more than I can say for some of the more expensive brands. I'll definitely be back for some more in the new year and will be trying more of their range.


A Greedy Man in a Hungry World: How (almost) everything you thought you knew about food is wrong

5.0 out of 5 stars Bit of an eye opener, 21 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being generally interested in food, I thought that I would check this out. It's a well written, informative book which has a good balance between giving the reader facts and opinion, but steering clear of patronising them.

It delves a little deeper into the global world of food than the current received wisdom from celebrity chefs would like us to do. Rayner questions issues around food sustainability, organic systems and vegetarianism and should open the eyes of the reader to some of the reality around feeding the nation and the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read, but cheer up, 24 Jan 2012
This is a great read and describes the ups and downs of this journey. It is definately worth the couple of quid price, but the author could have been a little cheery in his descriptions of many of his encounters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring read, 24 Dec 2011
This book really gives you a kick up the nether region to get out and enjoy running off road and up the hills. There are loads of inspiring stories of endurance and guts that make you think that you want to give them a go. It also gives a historical perspective on the sport and probably needs a sequal to update what has happened since it was written. Any danger?

I'm glad I got a copy of this from the library, this is a lazy collection of simple recipes with a large amount of product placement!

5.0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly funny read, 8 Mar 2009
I bought this as when I was desperate for something to read and was not expecting much more than a tale of post-war mountaineering expeditions. However, this has been the most entertaining books I have read over the last couple of years.

It details the journey of Newby and his friend Carless and their very English attitudes to the people and places that they encouter on the way through what is now Afghanistan.
