delightful, unconventional and reassuring,
This review is from: Cooking Lessons (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)Some thoughts from the most appropriate person I know my mum, SA Sayer:
What a delightful book to read, entertaining, funny and informative. It's about a young women and how she fell into cooking and how her passion for food grew. She draws you in, in a relaxed fashion, giving recipes for food in such a way that you just want to try it for yourself.
It's a down to earth book, as she says "...nothing, but nothing, beats a good crumble, and the best crumble of all is an apple crumble." In a number of cases it is not so much a recipe as an explanation of how to make something work, often missing from a more traditional cook book. Many readers will find this book reassuring in that what they are doing is probably right and if not there are useful suggestions as to how to get it right.
The book would make a lovely present, both to give or to receive.
