Delicious recipes beautifully presented,
This review is from: Bocca: Cookbook (Hardcover)
I have eaten at Jacob Kenedy's fabulous restaurant on many occasions and was delighted to discover that he had decided to share some of his secrets. Many of the recipes are surprisingly easy using readily available ingredients though I think I will find it harder to find cuttlefish ink and pig's blood, if I am tempted to try the seppie col nero or sanginaccio.
I have already prepared the asparagus and morels (adding the eggs and parmezan), peas with spring onions and basil, roast lamb and steak, I am looking forward to a bit more time on the weekend so I can try the fiddlier dishes. I can see this cookbook will become one of my favourites and most used.
I like the chatty relaxed style that tempts you to try the food, the serving suggestions and the fact that right at the start Jacob Kenedy says that everyone has their own way of making a dish, so if mine tastes a bit different from Jakes it is still correct because I know that by using this book as a guide it will definitely be delicious.
