4.0 out of 5 stars yummy but....., 30 Aug 2007

le jardinier (portsmouth, hants, UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Homemade Pies: Tasty Old Fashioned Recipes (Hardcover)
where are the savoury recipes??? And why are 97% of the recipes American?? Thankfully there is a glossary at the back to translate the Americanisms. The book is small and nostalgic looking enforced by the aged pages and quaint drawings. Some of the recipes could be written in a clearer form e.g. if you require butter in both the pastry and the filling then list it in both sets of ingredients lists not just under the pastry list. The Pear and Almond tart worked well if a little too sweet.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC, FANTASTIC, 17 Aug 2009

This review is from: Homemade Pies: Tasty Old Fashioned Recipes (Hardcover)
What an absolutely FANTASTIC book as I turned over each page it just got better and better. The author deserves 10 out of 10 for such a stunning cookbook. Where do you start everyone a winner, I could have just eaten them straight off the pages.

I had not realised there were so many different wonderful creations the recipes in the book just goes on and on. Everytime I thought I had come to the end of the book no ... there were more goodies waiting on the next pages.

I am also going to purchase the [500 Cakes and Bakes] by the same author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nowé wrong with Old, 6 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Homemade Pies: Tasty Old Fashioned Recipes (Hardcover)
This is an elderly cook but the recipes stand up well. It's short on pictures but full of traditional recipes for sweet (no savoury) pies with the "Yum" factor.
