The best cook book ever,
This review is from: Nick Nairn Cook School Cookbook (Hardcover)
My book arrived today and I have to tell you that I dropped everything
to spend a couple of hours reading it.
It is quite simply the best cook book I have ever seen, and I have quite
a few from Larousse through Gordon Ramsay to Elizabeth David. The
photos are beautifully composed and presented, and the writing is
clearly from the heart, but the way it actually shows the reader how to
achieve things is excellent.
My favourite book before this was Conran's cookbook because it devoted
a third of the book to choosing the right produce and demonstrating
preparation techniques, but this book is well ahead of that one.
It really captures the spirit and essence of the cook school and
I congratulate everyone involved in its production.
I'll be back at the school very soon and look forward to meeting
