5.0 out of 5 stars A good book for beginners, children and everyone else, 16 Aug. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The River Cottage Family Cookbook (Hardcover)
Yes, this book does contain recipes that are too basic for people with decent cooking skills, but there are recipes for those people too. It's the mixture that makes it a true family cookbook - you can hardly start your children off cooking with complicated recipes. All the recipes are presented in a very clear way and easy to follow. What I realy like about this book are the projects that are included in most chapters. They really make it possible to teach children how food is or used to be produced (make your own pasta, cream cheese, grow your own potatoes or little salad garden on very little space ...) or just suggest ideas for having some fun, for example at a children's party (have a pancake race, create your own icecream maker ...). Many recipes have step-by-step photographs to help you along, plus serving suggestions to vary the recipes. I quite enjoy this book, although I do also cook from Gary Rhodes' or Gordon Ramsay's books and obviously am not a beginner.
