1.0 out of 5 stars Such a disappointment, 28 Jan 2012
This review is from: Mary Berry's Family Sunday Lunches (Hardcover)
I was very excited about this book, until it arrived. I thought it would have lots of different ways to cook a roast of all types. She covers off each type of meat, but only does one roast per chapter, the other recipies are like anything I could find in any of my other cook books. The ONLY reason I am keeping it and not returning is because of the gravy recipies at the end - its only redeeming feature. So disappointed. Really expected more - will have to buy the Gordon Ramsey one now, and I'm not a fan of his, so is even more annoying! VERY misleading title.

This book doesn't claim to be about the traditional Sunday Roast, with variations on that theme. It is exactly what it says it is - a collection of recipes that are perfect for a special lunch with family and friends. Don't blame the book for your misreading of the title!

How dare you criticise Mary. You should be locked in the tower. She is a national treasure. Roasting is just roasting, surely you don't need her to tell you to chuck in a bit of garlic here or a sprig of rosemary there to ring the changes. Perhaps you would be happier with Gorden or Jamie to suggest roasting it in some interesting receptacle usually found in the garden. Maybe you enjoy a trip up a mountain to find the particularly unuasual herb without which the recipe simply won't work. Most of us busy people love the ease, simplicity and style of dear Mary.
