It really is a Kitchen Bible.,
This review is from: Tamasin's Kitchen Bible (Hardcover)
I have a lot of cookery books but this one has quickly found a new and lasting place in my affections.
As I looked through it there were so many recipes that I instantly decided I have to cook. It's got the basics that you want to cook everyday - from cakes, pasta sauces, lasagne, chocolate mousse, coq au vin, irish stew, boeuf carbonnade, lamb with flageolet beans, chicken liver pate, gammon with fresh parsely sauce, lemon meringue pie, jams, fools, pannacotta, custards etc to more exciting recipes that are bit unusual but that still sound delicious and unfussy and would be great for cooking for friends - like yoghurt lemon and poppy cake, rose geranium cream, belly of pork with beans, cinnamon icecream, broad bean pilav, partridge with lentils and lardons, cod cakes with kaffir lime leaves or lemon risotto and dozens more.
I like Delia, Jamie, Simon Hopkinson, Claudia Roden, Hugh F-W and many more and was very pleasantly surprised by this book. Lots that I want to cook!
