Okay for beginners,
This review is from: Grillhouse (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The recipes in this book are very meaty, beaty, big and bouncy (apologies to The Who.) and I thought very basic and pretty much bog standard for stuff like steaks, but overwritten and often overexplained.I'm just looking at the recipe for Steak Au Poivre and Ross Dobson takes a whole paragraph explaining how to coat the steak in pepper!So, I would say this is probably very much a book for the single man and novice cook.
The pictures are nice and the recipes are fine, but I can't help feeling the whole thing's a bit unnecassary as most people won't need a book to tell them how to cook a steak or how to roll out frozen shop bought pastry and you will find most of the recipes for the sauces in plenty of other cookbooks. Having said that, the addition of breadcrumbs to his recipe for macaroni cheese looks like it might be nice so I'll give that a go sometime.
