5.0 out of 5 stars Great ideas!
For the millions of Marmite lovers out there, this is a must-have book. Loads of new recipes involving the famous spread. These range from the simple (eg Marmite Corn Fritters) to the complicated and exotic (eg Lamb Kofte and Crispy Cabbage, or Panini with Marmite Tapenade, Taleggio and Sweet Peppers). Even those who claim to hate Marmite might be tempted. As an added...

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun book for Lovers and Haters alike!
Contains genuine recipes that (speaking as a Marmite Lover) look delicious, for the most part. However, this is more of a fun read than an addition to your collection of 'serious' recipe books. Perfect as a gift to your Marmite loving or hating friends and family as it contains lots of interesting snippets of information on the history of the British icon. My Marmite...

This review is from: The Marmite Cookbook (Storecupboard Cookbooks) (Hardcover)
For the millions of Marmite lovers out there, this is a must-have book. Loads of new recipes involving the famous spread. These range from the simple (eg Marmite Corn Fritters) to the complicated and exotic (eg Lamb Kofte and Crispy Cabbage, or Panini with Marmite Tapenade, Taleggio and Sweet Peppers). Even those who claim to hate Marmite might be tempted. As an added bonus, there's also a brief history of Marmite as well as some alternative uses.
Not sure if anything will beat the masterful simplicity of Marmite on toast for breakfast though!

5.0 out of 5 stars I hate the stuff - but love the book, 19 April 2006
This review is from: The Marmite Cookbook (Storecupboard Cookbooks) (Hardcover)
What you might not be expecting is such a well-produced and high quality little hardback. Definitely a cut above the norm.

Personally, I loathe Marmite, but have nevertheless enjoyed this book (I bought it as a present for a friend who would bathe in the stuff if she could). The recipes and ideas are varied and span everything from the truly simple right through to more complex dishes and ideas. It would have been nice if the 'extras' at the back went into a bit more detail about the history and the manufacture of the product - but what's there is interesting as a 'taster'.

If you're really keen on this goo, try searching the internet - there are a lot of fascinating and whacky websites out there.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love it or hate it........, 6 Sep 2007
This review is from: The Marmite Cookbook (Storecupboard Cookbooks) (Hardcover)
....this is a book all about MARMITE!

Board covers, with eye-catching dust-jacket, opening to 80 shiny high quality pages with:

'52 recipes featuring the store-cupboard essential that everyone loves....or hates....

* 'Yuck', said Carol Smilie,
* 'Love it', said Colin Dexter,
* 'Hate it', said Joan Collins....

Wonderful 'Marmite' illustrations and stories including classic archive material, fun facts & trivia.'

Back cover quote from 'The Independent on Sunday':

* '...this could become the most divisive cookbook ever.'

Recipes are clearly laid out with the number of servings, the list of ingredients and a numbered step-by-step method.
Brightly laid out with numerous illustrations but not of the actual recipes featured.

Recipes include:

* Pasta Primavera
* Griddled Haddock Jacket with Marmite Cheese Sauce
* Boston Baked Beans
* Banana and Bacon French Toast
* Marmite Garlic Bread
* Grange Asparagus Bunch
* Tuscan Picnic Loaf
* Marmite and Watercress Toasted Soldiers
* Prawn and Marmite Sesame Toasts
* Manhattan Bagel
* Sicilian Scramble
* Marmite Corn Fritters
* Devilled Kidneys
* The Marmite Steam Train

plus sections entitled:

* Marmite - Alternative Uses!
* Marmite - A 'potted' History

'Contrary to popular belief, 'Marmite' does have its fans in the US....'

And....if looking for an extra special present:

MARMITE Mini Money Jar Keyring or MARMITE Apron

This review is from: The Marmite Cookbook (Storecupboard Cookbooks) (Hardcover)
Originally ordered as a bit of a joke present for my sister who loves Marmite, but actually turned out to be a great gift. Very nice quality and some interesting ideas inside, perfect quirky present if you're looking for something a bit different. Will definitely bear in mind for future reference.

Feedback was also good from seller and quick dispatch and delivery.

Very happy!
