Well, it certainly isn't because of the beautiful photographs (there aren't any) or the tempting picture on the front cover (I defy anyone to look at it without laughing). What it does have to offer though, is a wide array of recipes that you could happily make every day. Some of them are a tad fussy (I can't be bothered to stuff a turkey leg), but most of them are sensible, straightforward recipes that don't require specialist equipment or unobtainable ingredients. Actually, the length of the… Read more
