5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book, stunning recipes, 5 April 2011
This review is from: Supper Club: Recipes and notes from the underground restaurant (Hardcover)
This book is unique - not only is it incredibly beautiful, full of Kerstin Rodgers' whimsical style (think French vintage with an edgy, slightly subversive twist), it is also eclectic in terms of recipes. This is because it is based upon The Underground Restaurant - the author's supperclub which is never allowed to rest on its laurels, but is constantly coming up with interesting themes. The book includes some of these, including a Midnight Feast of black food (Black Russians, Squid-ink Tortelloni, Marmite Chocolate Cupcakes) and Elvis Night (Deep-Fried Peanut Butter & Banana Sandwiches, Blackened Catfish) and the ridiculously pretty Flower Menu (Stuffed Courgette Flowers, Marigold Bread, Elderflower Fritters, ice cream served in a Flower Ice Bowl). Other interesting ideas include making butterscotch schnapps with Daim bars, vodka and your dishwasher, flavouring popcorn with butter, chilli and lime as well as taking lots of things back to first principles - candying citrus peel, for example.

This is a lovely cookery book, full of things I personally would like to try, but it's also an excellent read, offering as it does a glimpse into what is clearly a fascinating life.
