Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
At first, I wasn't sure of what to make of Alice's Cookbook - but after sitting down with a coffee in the late summer sun, I "got" it. It's a cookery book, but in narrative. A recipe book to read rather than simply follow. A real pleasure to read through and savour, then come back to time and again in order to create the feasts described.
Some lovely recipes, grouped in sections according to occasion - some simple, some more complex. But all utterly delicious and completely appealing in the context of their suggested events. My personal favourites were the breakfasts!
A pleasing and fresh approach to cookery books and would make a lovely gift.
