This review is from: River Cottage Veg Every Day! (River Cottage Every Day) (Hardcover)
I paid the full £ for this book, within days of it coming out. I think its worth it. I now see its £ and all I can say is that is a bargain. The high quality pictures make the recipes jump off the pages. What I love about HFW recipe books is that the recipes are so accessible. I have tried a couscous recipe and the Asian-inspired coleslaw. What has amazed me is that the vegetables I seem to have a glut of at the moment such as Aubergines and Kale can be so easily prepared into simple recipes. The book also has a few bread and vegetable recipes, which I am going to try next. In particular kale and onion pizza, refried beans foldover and the garlicky flat bread. There is a section on mezze and tapas and things to do on the grill, as well as soups, hefty salads and main course meals. I have probably missed some sections. Each recipe has a large photo of what it could look like and simple colourful drawings complete the design. The food sells the recipe, rather than fancy table clothes, glossy images and decorative plates. I also like the well thought out recipe design and that the words are large enough to read without my glasses. The book is not glossy and somehow it feels wholesome and comforting to touch. I am even thinking of eating less meat.
