5.0 out of 5 stars A real Gem of a Book, 30 May 2011
This review is from: My Favourite Ingredients (Hardcover)
My mum surprised me with this book as an early Christmas present and enclosed an article about Skye inside the cover. Like the other reviewers, I have some cookbooks that I like but hardly ever use, however this book has become my top choice whenever anyone is coming to visit. I just love it. At first glance, some of the recipes don't look remarkable, but something about the sequencing or combination of ingredients or just plain genius make these recipes taste really special. So far I've made the asparagus, rice and pancetta soup, the roasted vegetable salad, grilled poussins with lemon, marjoram and yoghurt, the squash and tomato curry, the jerusalem artichoke with goat's cheese and the chicken with garlic and fennel and they have all been really, really good. That isn't a boast, it's just a wonderful book! The only recipe I haven't loved was the one for blood oranges and honey, but I think I'm just not a fruit-for-pudding sort of person. It's perfect if you're the sort of person who is getting bored of all of your usual favourite recipes.
