5.0 out of 5 stars A Recipe Book with a difference, 22 Sept. 2010
This review is from: A Life in Food (Hardcover)
I picked up a copy of this book at a London hotel (the author owns several hotels around the world) and it's a fascinating read about coming from humble beginnings in South africa to running a luxury collection of hotels all intertwined with 42 recipes collected, tried and tested over as many years. There's nothing fancy about the recipes either - most are recognised dishes but cooked in a certain way and style. The food photography is certainly mouthwatering. It's the sort of food that hits everyone's palate - my favourites, which I have tried at home, are the Duck Cottage pie and the Honeycomb ice cream. Certainly unusual as cookbooks go but if you want to improve your home style cooking then it's worth it's money. All the books proceeds get donated to two designated charities too so it really is a "good" food guide!
