5.0 out of 5 stars Top class, 29 Oct 2010
I really enjoyed this book .
It is glossy and beautifully illustrated I have successfully tried the recipes.
Their ethos is genuine and it reminds me of a similar establishment in South Manchester - The Barbakan. Quality products which poeple will willingly queue for and pay the price because the product is so good .
Again my only tiny criticism is the scale of the recipes and sometimes down sizing - doesn't work so well!
I am about to put their small Christmas cake recipe into production - having used Delia & Gary Rhodes for so lomg - stay posted for the results !!

Nigel Slater is wonderful.
The book is a joy to read ;it is like having him in my front room , talking me through the recipes and anecdotes
The recipes are interesting ; some more complex than others.
He has such an easy laid back style .
My only tiny criticism is the lack of illustration.
He delivers on all counts - He is a joy!

It is simple , straight forward - it basically delivers .
It is bright and well designed , good illustration.
As in the television prog' he comes across as a bright young guy with an enthusiasm for his passion of jam making. He has tried and succeeded in making a very healthy and innovative product .
I really liked that he has remained true to his ethos and continues to do so and all the while… Read more
