2.0 out of 5 stars Hmm.... You'll never afford the ingredients, 12 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Marco Pierre White's Great British Feast: Over 100 Delicious Recipes From A Great British Chef (Hardcover)
Everyone who cooks wants the Marco books on their shelves, which I now realise is pretty much where they will stay after a quick read, this book accompanied a tv series where marco goes hunting, fishing and foraging and pushed his pub/restaurant and the first section of the book reviews this .. so you can imagine then the recipes that follow, mostly it is hard to find or more likely afford the ingredients unless you are dedicated to copying his work completely with the same obsession and have a friend who hunts and fishes but am betting you will rarely cook more than one recipe from this book, perhaps it is best described as a collectors book?.
It starts with quails eggs, has recipes for garden snails, pheasant, lobster, venison in fact all the foods you would never get on a council estate in Leeds where marco started his life, perhaps he forgot his roots in this great British feast?
some good sauce recipes at the end but it's Marco Pierre Whits so nothing is going to be simple

So do you suggest he should have done a book full of microwave meals and processed food? Pheasants are affordable and venison (depending on the cut) isn't entirely out of reach for those on low incomes. To be honest, if a person were that hard-up, why would they bother wasting their money on a cookery book by a Michelin starred Chef?
And yes, I do live on a council estate..
