A MUST for anyone who enjoys food!
on 30 July 2013
From the 1st page, you know this is going to be a fun. The pic of Matt piping meringue sums the book up - cooking & eating should be pleasurable & the end results of a recipe should be achievable in a normal kitchen.
The book is divided into chapters covering each "guilty pleasure" ingredient and the recipes range from good old-fashioned comfort food "with a twist" (pear & raisin bread pudding)to dishes more suited to entertaining (vodka-cured salmon). There's no need to search for obscure ingredients - everything is easily sourced in your local shop or supermarket. Matt's laid-back writing style eases you through each stage of the recipe, and his hints, tips & information throughout the book ensure successful results.
I've already made the Peanut Butter Ice Cream (try serving it with a caramel sauce & sprinkled with chocolate buttons - anyone for a "snickers" but much, much tastier?). It's rare that a cookery book makes me want to try nearly every recipe within it - but THIS one does.
Congrats, Matt - it's a winner!
