3.0 out of 5 stars slightly disappointed really..., 10 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tom Kerridge's Proper Pub Food (Hardcover)
I ordered this book months ago on pre order as a enjoy Tom's appearances on tv and and always drool over the food he produces so when I saw he was about to release his cookbook and it was called proper pub grub I was delighted as it would be filled with new twists on classics and also future classics with tips from a 2 Michelin star chef, BUT although the photograpy is good and Toms introductions are written in a friendly style there are remarkably few things I want to cook from either as the ingredients are tricky to get or they sound a bit too complicated or they just don't sound nice eg Jacobs ladder and bone marrow bread pudding,pigs trotters and bacon on toast, eggy bread with chocolate and orange sauce ( a breakfast dish? really?...)it maybe I'm not as adventurous as I think I am or maybe I don't fancy going to a pub and eating flaked skate,dandelion leaves,charred lemon and anchovies.If you are the sort of person who will make this kind of food at home then hats off to you and I'm sure you will absolutely love this book but its just not for me I prefer gastro pub classics by trish hilferty or the eagle cookbook.if you found this review helpful then please click yes at the bottom

Well, your extrapolated ellipsis is: a) incorrect; and b) irrelevant. And "me thinks" should really be "methinks".

I confess that I thought the 'has' thing was meant as a joke!

I hesitate to ask this as I fear I may be walking into a bear trap, but is starting a sentence with a conjunction not ungrammatical? Certainly it was in my 'O' level days. It was almost as bad as using a preposition to end a sentence with.
