3.0 out of 5 stars Incorrect measurements!, 27 Aug. 2013
This review is from: The Collection (Hardcover)
I agree with linny21 ... I too really like James Martin and was very keen to get started cooking from this book as pretty much every recipe featured sounds and looks mouth wateringly delicious. My husband and I like linny21 tried the steak with stilton rarebit topping and the rarebit topping was so runny it could not be used to top the steaks under the grill. I have made a note since this disaster when reading though the recipes again that the liquid quantities in some of the recipes seem ridiculous. I am a fairly experienced home cook and so I think with this hindsight I could adapt the recipes with errors to make them work but that's not the point - cook books should be pretty much fool-proof so long as the recipe is followed to the letter then results should be guaranteed especially when the recipes have been written by a celebrity chef like James Martin.
