This review is from: River Cottage Every Day (Hardcover)
A fabulous, fabulous cookbook.

I have all the River Cottage books and love them all but this is my favourite. I have cooked more recipes from this book in the couple of weeks I've had it than from any other cookbook I own (and I own a lot).

Plenty of lovely photographs enhanced by the wonderful doodles of Mariko Jesse, lots of recipes, clear instructions, useful suggestions for serving and varying the recipes, advice on storecupboard ingredients and excellent writing make this book a winner.

This is food for every meal and for every day with chapters on breakfast, lunch boxes, bread, meat, fish, veg, fruit and treats. Hugh recommends British grown and produced food wherever possible, sustainable fish and thrifty cuts of meat. I am finding that I don't need to rely on France and Italy for my cheese, oil or vinegar and I certainly don't need to look outside the UK or even my county for fruit and veg, except maybe for a lemon.

So far I have made the drop scones (for breakfast today), flatbreads, pizza, the tomato, chipolata and potato lunch box with mustardy vinaigrette, leftover stew pasties, parsley and pumpkin seed pesto, parsley, walnut and blue cheese pesto, two-root slaw, roast fish fillets with roast potatoes, pea purée, tupperware Mexican chorizo, sticky glazed spare ribs, quince and bramley apple sorbet, chunky fig, date and prune cake, ten minute chocolate chip cookies, lemon sponge pudding and sour dough bread. Every single recipe has been wonderful and the sour dough has changed my life.

Highly recommended.
