Marcus Wareing 2nd book,
This review is from: One Perfect Ingredient, Three Ways to Cook It (Hardcover)I have just bought a copy of Marcus Wareing's new book, have the last book which i really enjoyed so thought i would try the next offering.
I really like the focus of this book - looking at basic home ingredients and offering three different uses for them.
Although simple and easy to follow like the first book this looks very different. There are very few photos of Marcus and only one of his children (baby in fact) which means it concentrates totally on the food - a welcome change to many of today's cookery books. The photos for the food really are superb and mouthwatering. The paper is more practical than the last book - it seems to wipe clean which is useful when following the recipes! I have made a couple of recipes so far - the bisque and the carrot salad. Both simple to make and very clearly written, certainly impressed my family!
I have read a few reviews asking why Marcus does not write books on restaurant food, personally I am quite pleased he doesn't yet as I would like to build up to that over time. Learn the basics first!
I have not been to his restaurant yet but hoping to dine there soon so i can see the man at work - appararently he is one of few 'celebrity' chefs who actually cooks in his kitchen!
I can definitely recommend this book!
