5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully Presented With Some Great Recipes, 5 Dec. 2013
This review is from: GQ Eats: The cookbook for men of seriously good taste (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very nicely presented book which looks like a quality product from the predominantly black cover to the high quality glossy pages and the carefully constructed photographs. The format is that the book is divided into ten sections, examples of which are Brilliant Breakfasts, Health Conscious Classics and Michelin Star Meals. Hence there is quite a wide selection of dishes, each from a well known chef. Among the better known contributors are Heston Blumenthal, Raymond Blanc and Gordon Ramsey, so this is quite a roll call of the great and the good in cookery.

The recipes themselves encompass a good selection as would befit the wide range of authors. Many of them look delicious. The methodology in each case is very carefully laid out, stage by stage. The ingredients are clearly listed and, almost invariably, should not be too difficult to source from your local supermarket although you may have to work a bit to find, for example, a haunch of wild boar for your alternative Christmas dinner. The aforesaid haunch of wild boar, duck kebab and Robert Wright's version of fish pie and many others look very tempting and there are reworkings of old favourites such as shepherds pie and chicken and chips.

This is a book which will be welcomed as a gift by any aspiring chef. It is beautifully produced and will not look out of place as a coffee table volume. It is, however, stuffed with tempting but practical recipes so is not just pretty, but is a very practical and useful addition to any cookbook collection. Although billed as `the cookbook for men of seriously good taste' there is no sex bias here and this will be just as good for the ladies.
