4.0 out of 5 stars Good Reading and Good Eating
I was drawn to buy this book by memories of Rowley Leigh's newspaper column from a few years ago, in which he inspired me to try cooking good, honest, tasty and not over-flashy food. The recipes in this book which I have tried so far have had exactly those qualities and also have enabled me to produce more subtle flavours than I often do! However, this is not a book for...

I was drawn to buy this book by memories of Rowley Leigh's newspaper column from a few years ago, in which he inspired me to try cooking good, honest, tasty and not over-flashy food. The recipes in this book which I have tried so far have had exactly those qualities and also have enabled me to produce more subtle flavours than I often do! However, this is not a book for week-day suppers. Ingredients are not obscure but a fair amount of time and care is needed in their preparation. Don't expect a Nigel Slater style solution for when you get home from work late, tired and hungry. But for more expansive weekend occasions your time and care will be well rewarded, and Rowley Leigh's writing is genial and companionable on the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly appetizing read, 22 Oct 2000

This review is from: No Place Like Home (Hardcover)
I bought this book for my chef son. I opened it and read it from cover to cover. Not only are Rowley Leigh's comments witty and wise, but the recipes are so well organised (into seasons and menus) and so appetising and commonsensical to follow that I started using the book myself the very next day. I am now buying another for my son. One tiny quibble - the illustrator is good, but not so good as her status on the jacket suggests. The photoraphs are more useful - and better.
