A really interesting book even if your not into cooking and making things. Bought for my dad and so far he has built a smoker, made pickles and chutney To go with the homemade sausages.

I've been looking forward to this book for a while. Over the past eighteen months or so we've seen a plethora of videos and pictures appear in Tim Haywards Twitter Stream, all offering a delicious hint of what was to come in the book. Food DIY does not disappoint. Superb photography and illustration together with the natural enthusiasm of the author for his subject make for a book to behold. The simple instructions on smoking, salting, drying, and deep frying, as well as the recipes it contains, make this book a great aid for having a go and reclaiming some of those lost skills of the food DIYer. It's so heavy, that if you bought two copies, you could use it as a DIY cheese press!

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.

The book arrived well packed and soon.
The book itself is a one of the cleverest and innovative I have in my collection. It describes how you can make your own food, the complete process, like making bacon being one example.
Each subject is covered thoroughly with safety as key.
It has become an invaluable read, and rates in my all time top five cookbooks.

I can't ever remember reading a cookery book from cover to cover before. This is an absolute joy with Tim Hayward's obvious enthusiasm shining out from every page. I've already been out and bought a smoker and am busily trying some of his recipes and cooking techniques.

Ordered this for my "foodie" son-law for Christmas. He loves it and is looking forward to experimenting with some of the recipes, having read the reviews and now the book itself. Different!

Its not often I buy a cookery book that's so wonderfully written I want to read bits of it out loud! Tim is funny and informative, the recipes are well written, and I'm gradually putting on weight.
