One for the coffee table, I think ...,
This review is from: Friends at My Table: A year of eating, drinking and making merry (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a cookery book, packed full of menus and recipes for almost any kind of gathering carefully divided by season.
It is beautifully presented, the photography is stylish, and there is a wealth of extra material that adds a certain charm.
Those recipes, those ideas, look lovely, and there are a few that I'll try, but there are rather more that I'll simply read and think how good they look.
You see a certain freedom, a certain lifestyle, a certain wealth, is presumed.
Some will find that irksome, but I can accept it. For me is a book to browse, a book to dream with, and maybe, on very particular occasions, a book to cook from.
