An excellent and inspiring cook-book
on 6 April 2007
This is a classic of its type, outlining an approach to eating that combines elements of the classical French aesthetic with British ingredients and recipes. It is inspirational cookery without being overly aspirational.
The book is only marred by a slight lack of clarity and occasional sloppy culinary proofreading. An example of this is Welsh Rarebit for 6 specifying four pieces of toast. This does not detract from the overall significance of the book, but may have the effect of heightening the nervousness of uncertain cooks coming to it for the first time.
