5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 27 Feb 2013
This is the cookbook I have spent years waiting for - practical and clever, yes, but also packed full of outrageously delicious recipes: radicchio, red wine and pancetta risotto, Turkish style baked eggs, spaghetti al limone. There isn't a single page which doesn't shout 'cook me, cook me!" Photography is beautiful as well.

Loved, loved, loved this book. Beautifully written and brilliantly researched - it transported me to another place and time with consummate ease. Unreservedly recommended.


Calatafimi: Behind the Stone Walls of a Sicilian Town

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rare Gem, 15 May 2012
Every now and then a book comes along that simply stops you in your tracks. This was such a one. I discovered it completely by accident while on holiday in the countryside near Calatafimi and I am so glad I did. The author takes you by the hand, and in the convivial tones of an old friend, shows you the real Sicily, all through the lens of one unassuming town. The title might suggest it should be read by those with an interest in Calatifimi. Quite the opposite. It should be read by anyone with an interest in Sicily.


Pure
Pure

3.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly Accomplished but Without Heart, 23 Mar 2012
This review is from: Pure (Paperback)
This book sizzled. It was frighteningly accomplished. Wonderful setting, brought brilliantly to life, but somehow I felt he didn't love his characters and so I didn't quite love the book.

by Mark Douglas Hill
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £8.19

5.0 out of 5 stars Witty, Intelligent and very very Funny, 10 Mar 2012
Well done the Bon Viveur for his erudite and amusing tour of culinary delights. A fabulous meander through the history of the things we eat, with cupid always peering over our shoulder. Perfect stocking present, perfect late-night read, perfect pre-date companion. Loved it.
