5.0 out of 5 stars Review of The Game Cookbook, 19 Aug. 2004
This review is from: The Game Cookbook (Hardcover)
The Game Cookbook is a rare example of a book which can be judged by its cover. The beautifully illustrated pages are matched by the superb recipes and personal narrative written by Clarissa Dickson Wright and Johnny Scott. Often I have thought that modern recipe books, peppered with escapist photographs that bear no relation to what's normally found in a kitchen, belong more on a coffee table than they do stacked haphazardly next to the wooden spoons. The Game Cookbook however achieves both aesthetic success and irreplacable practical guidance as to how to cook game. Yes, I did feel mild pangs of guilt as I besmirched the pages of the recipe for salmon with chicory and Roquefort with a cheese-laden fork, but as soon the pastry rose in the oven and the aroma filled my house I forgot all about defacing my new book. It is a pleasure to cook such unfashionable fare (no Thai fusion here) from such a great chef as Clarissa Dickson Wright surely is. Pairing her wtih the professionally formidable publishing house Kyle Cathie was a stroke of brilliance. This book is well worth having in your kitchen.
