This is the best cookery book I have!
on 31 May 2000
This book arrived on Saturday. I have never been to Clarke's restaurant but had read about Sally Clarke in Elizabeth David's biography "Writing at the Kitchen Table". I thought I'd give it a try .. but my goodness ... my cooking has been transformed. So far I've done the fishcakes (perfect texture and taste), the pizza (magnificent), the chicken and three pepper salad (yummy) and I cheated a bit on the couscous salad but it was still absolutely great. This has nothing to do with my cooking (which is not always great) but very much to do with the perfection dictated in the recipes. I am lucky enough to live near a fantastic greengrocer who gets deliveries from Italy everyday (that helps too). But well done to Sally Clarke. I think you are quite brilliant. There is nothing rushed in this cook book, everything has been measured and savoured to perfection!
