My most used cookbook,
This review is from: A Platter of Figs & Other Recipes (Hardcover)I have now had this cookbook for a year and been through all four seasons (the book is organised seasonally). I have not yet had a bad recipe and I have had many truly excellent recipes. This book is all about letting the quality of ingredients shine, and the recipes really let that happen. I find that I keep on going back to familiar recipes and, unusually for me, I now have twelve recipes from the book which I have cooked at least three times - I'm not sure that any other cookbook I own has supplied more than three such recipes!
Really, the only negative I can find is that some of the recipes seem to be for entire armies, so you do need to do a reality check on quantities when preparing to shop for the ingredients.
