I wanted to be annoyed by this book, but dammit the food is tasty!,
This review is from: Alice's Cookbook (New Voices in Food) (Paperback)
This book looks like the kind of thing that would normally annoy me.
First it is a cookery book built around the concept that the author scoots round in a campervan. I loathe these approaches - The Hairy Bikers (shudder) and so on. Just tell me how to make good food and keep your gap-year jaunt to yourself thanks!
And Hart is stupidly young to be doling out advice on anything. So an over-privileged metropolitan brat then?
But despite my best efforts to grouch this is a fantastic cook book full of vibrant food.
The recipes are clustered together in menus rather than split into starters, mains, sides etc - another approach of which I usually disapprove.
Winners for me so far are the Boursin Omelette Baguettes (no really!), The Easy Dhal Soup and the genius quick supper recipe for crab cannelloni.
Alice Hart is clearly a food writer to watch. I am also really taken with her Vegetarian book too.
