This novel was interesting in that the underlying concept did not become apparent until the end. It was not what I was expecting.

So far, so good. It does what is expected of it and, as my hands are a bit arthritic, is a boon. Gets all the juice out.

I haven't scrutinized it as it is intended as a present, but it looks good and, being an RHS item, should be reliable.

This review is from: Leiths Baking Bible (Paperback)
So far it has met with all my requirements - I couldn't find a recipe for Sussex Pond Pudding, but you can't have everything!
I would definitely recommend it to anyone starting out in domestic cookery. An especially good section on bread baking.

I chose the rating because everything about the processor was fine except that the carousel would not accommodate all of the attachments. Otherwise a very sturdy product.It did not move when operating and was quiet.


Leith's Meat Bible

5.0 out of 5 stars Prue's meat, 24 Oct 2012

This review is from: Leith's Meat Bible (Hardcover)
Another brilliant book! People, especially younger shoppers, need to know which cut of meat to buy for their needs - most shops label their meat as suitable for particular cooking purposes but not the cuts. It is unfair to expect young inexperienced cooks to know all this now that cooking is not so widely taught as it used to be, so this book fills the gap and will go a long way to preventing poor results do to lack of knowledge. The price of meat nowadays being so high it is essential to know exactly what to buy to avoid costly mistakes.

5.0 out of 5 stars prue's techniques, 24 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very good book - the sort of instructional item which has been missing all this time. Most recipe books are just that - recipe books. I am 82 and have found that with all my recipe books, I still end up referring to a Good Housekeeping book dating back to just after WW2, so this book really fills a gap. Brilliant, I have bought one for my son who is really keen on cooking and, like most men, is interested in the technical aspect.
