You will be a better and more adventurous cook after reading this book
on 20 November 2013
I just received this book for my birthday. I am a good cook and love cooking and this is a proper cookery book! I love the layout, by ingredient makes it very accessible. I love the way the recipes are written they are so easy to follow. There is loads of background information about the ingredients and tips and ideas which you can apply elsewhere. I think it allows you to aspire to great cooking without being put off by complexity. Often books by Michelin chefs are too complex and off putting for a non professional but I am reading this and thinking yes I can do this, largely because of the way it is written. it is a cook book by a "personality" but it is truly all about the food. I often read cook books and just come away with ideas but Having sat and pored through it with a cup off tea for the last hour I have come away with many recipes that I want to follow properly and start on right this minute!! Especially the fish and game recipes make me feel I can approach the ingredients with confidence. I am, really pleased my hubby found this for me Thankyou!!
