5.0 out of 5 stars Easy and delicious, 26 Jun. 2011
This review is from: British Seasonal Food (Paperback)
I've had this book since early Spring, and have cooked from it a few times, so I am happy to report that things have worked really well. I made the Gamekeepers pie - cottage pie using venison - quite delicious and tasting resolutely of venison,the flavours not at all muddied - with Mark Hix's take on red cabbage, a lovely simple recipe, not as complex as my usual recipe, but that means the cabbage flavour stands out rather than the flavourings. I am cooking Ham Hock and Pea Salad today as it is warm (finally - I am writing this end June 2011, after a miserable early summer) and have high hopes that this will be as easy to accomplish and as delicious.

Although there are some rather arcane ingredients in here, things that you are never going to see on a supermarket shelf, there are also excellent simple recipes that allow straightforward ingredients to sing for their supper, as is right if you are eating seasonally. I like to cook uncomplicated food, but don't like it to be boring, and these recipes fit nicely into that niche. The recipes, although I am sure are of modern English restaurant standard in a lot of cases, are not at all difficult to produce for any normal domestic cook.

I will carry on through the seasons and look forward to rediscovering some more foods I haven't eaten for a while.
