5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring, 27 April 2013
This review is from: Everybody, Everyday (Hardcover)
I don't collect every cookery book out there, especially not just because of the name on the cover - but this is one of the few books that's actually caught my interest enough to try some foods I've never cooked with before.

Alex is a very practical chef and doesn't expect the average home cook to have hours and hours to spend fiddling with endless detailed processes just for one dinner.

The book is divided into logical and interesting sections of ingredient-specific recipes but there's also so much more.

* Sensible suggestions about how to make your own kitchen a more practical and enjoyable environment

* Clarification of common cooking terms

* Excellent photos of each recipe

* Practical explanations regarding cooking equipment types and reasons for making a good choice

* Excellent photo sequences showing how to carve a chicken etc

* Informative ABC of Vegetables, seasonality and their prep' methods

Somehow Alex has managed to make words on a page actually seem encouraging - the down to earth delivery and presentation makes it comfortable and interesting for the experienced and novice cook alike.

It's rare for me to recommend a book to anyone but this is a definite exception. I've even sent a copy over to my sister-in-law in Canada!

Now I actually look forward to trying new things!
