1.0 out of 5 stars Check the ingredients against Delia!, 4 Jan 2009
This review is from: James Martin - Desserts (Hardcover)
I am led to the conclusion that James Martin - or more likely one of his minions - didn't test these recipes as they are written in the book. Whether through laziness or arrogance I don't know but I've just cooked the worst sticky toffee pudding ever because the quantity of bicarbonate is written incorrectly. Very disappointing.

too many of these recipes are exactly the same as delia's (not just the ingredients, but the explanation for preparation !) Either he has copied or they have both taken from elsewhere.

I bought this book 2 days ago, and made the sticky toffee pudding last night. It turned out great. The others who had some all agreed that it was restaurant quality. I followed the recipe exactly, and it is the most successful pudding that I have made to date.

Had a very similar experience on the STP... completely untested recipes in this book. Pretty pictures though. For a proper recipe, just go to http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/4257/sticky-toffee-pudding and save yourself the hassle of getting it wrong with this book - now a trivet.
