Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's been said that Brits are buying more cookbooks and doing less cookery than ever before. It is, of course, the age of the celebrity chef, where cookery books read like aspirational lifestyle manuals and the foods comes a distant second to the personality of the cook. How refreshing then, that Ross Dobson seems to have left his ego at the kitchen door. This beautifully produced book places the emphasis squarely back on the food, with no photos of the author and the bare minimum of superfluous text. The recipes take a similar no-nonsense approach: devilled chicken wings, crispy pork belly with apple sauce, macaroni and cheese, warm chocolate brownies. They may sound basic, but Dobson's foolproof recipes for delicious classics deserve a space on the bookshelf of any cook who puts food foremost.
