Wonderful book - from soil to plate,
This review is from: Ballymaloe Cookery Course (Hardcover)
I recieved this book as a gift from friends after failing to win a place (through a competition) in the Ballymaloe Cookery school. As the cost of attendance was out of my grasp, recieving this book was a wonderful surprise. It is a superb book and one of my favorites. It shows everything about cooking from the bottom up. Darina's vast experience in teaching people how to cook is obvious as it seems like she is speaking to you as you read throug the recipes. She is passionate about seasonal and local foods and enjoying food as it is meant to be, without being drowned in flavours and sauces that hide the taste of the centerpiece of your dish. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn a few tricks about how to prepare and season food. It would be a wonderful addition to any home chef's library of cookbooks. I love it.
