2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
I found there was important information missing from this book ( tells you how to make a cure mixture but doesn't tell you for how long until the curing process is complete ! an important point I think. So I had to do other research to get this information.Much of the same occurred throughout the book - Disappointing

Passionate, articulate & opinionated. What's not to like? Great recipes & suggestions, whether newbie or pro, you'll find some superb ideas! Haven't yet found anything that didn't work or wasn't a great base to explore from. Buy it. You won't regret it.

2.0 out of 5 stars style over substance..., 3 Feb. 2014

This review is from: Food DIY: How to Make Your Own Everything: sausages to smoked salmon, sourdough to sloe gin, bacon to buns (Hardcover)
This is a nice looking and well-designed book but the content is a bit of a let down. It's neither geeky and detailed enough to please the hardcore diy foodie , nor user-friendly enough to entice the general cook very far down that particular path. Diana Henry's excellent book, SALT SUGAR SMOKE, covers many of the same areas, and is a much better buy.

Pretty off the wall book, I really like it. I accept there are a few whinges by other reviewers but if some slight oddness worries you then buy set hung by Delia. I love the idea of building a smoker from an old sports room locker. I may never build one but I simply think it's a great idea. I have also given a copy to a friend as a birthday present and he loved it's quirkiness too. Highly recommended.

This review is from: Food DIY: How to Make Your Own Everything: sausages to smoked salmon, sourdough to sloe gin, bacon to buns (Hardcover)
This is a fabulous book. I have made the meat pie and the rowan jelly. It's packed full of information and well-presented. A must if you live rural and farm. Just be careful because some of the recipes can be a tad vague. But you need to adopt the author's go-for-it approach. Looking forward to doing more from his book.

This review is from: Food DIY: How to Make Your Own Everything: sausages to smoked salmon, sourdough to sloe gin, bacon to buns (Hardcover)
This book describes how to make all sorts of things, it's definitely one of my better purchases.
Be careful you don't get carried away, I want to try it all which could work out costly - my next project is going to be some salami.
If you've got the time and love trying different things then you'll love this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting but could go a little further, 26 Feb. 2015

This review is from: Food DIY: How to Make Your Own Everything: sausages to smoked salmon, sourdough to sloe gin, bacon to buns (Hardcover)
Very informative book and gets you thinking about these products and techniques.
The only part I find lacking in the book is more information about storing the products once they're made and when you start using them - so how best to store them, how long they might last etc. Still a recommended read and resource.

Bought this book for my sister and her husband for Christmas as he is a chef and their main passion is food. As soon as I saw it on the net I knew it would be perfect - and it was! Excellent book.
