GREAT GREAT GREAT,
By A Customer
This review is from: Real Food (Hardcover)
I am a recent convert to Nigel Slater and his Real Food. I kept resisting the purchase of this book, though God only knows why. Still, after hearing his name mentioned by all the big names of cooking here in the UK (Nigella Lawson, Alastair Little, etc.) and hearing about his fabulous recipes at places like La Fromagerie and Divertimenti (London haunts for real foodies), I finally gave in.
Well, what a treat!
Slater writes extremely well and he gives great insight into cooking really fantastic, non-frou-frou recipes. My favourites so far are the Gruyere and Tarragon souffle (fool proof) and the orrechiette with sausage and double cream. Great stuff.
This is a MUST HAVE cookbook.
