5.0 out of 5 stars Really good book of traditional British Pub Food, 9 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gordon Ramsay's Great British Pub Food (Hardcover)
I have really enjoyed reading through this and trying some of the excellent recipes. The book covers a large number of dishes most cooks will already make my their version off, but don't take that as a bad thing. Instead I think of it a bit like the Cook Off's on the F-Word where Gordon shows the celebs his take on their signature dish, mainly resulting in a really good alternative.

I have tried the bangers and mash and the chicken and bacon pie to great success. I am sure the others will be just as easy. Compared to Jamie Oliver's random mutterings on a page that sometimes leave vital decisions to the imagination, Gordon's recipes are easy top read and follow. For a nice change these ones are very realistic midweek home fayre too. You don't have to throw a dinner party, scour oriental supermarkets or any of the other nonsense many cookbooks result in. Instead the vast majority of recipes are best serviced by a herb garden, a trip to the butcher, the greengrocers and some store cupboard essentials, my kind of cooking.

My only wish with this book is that some of the bloomin awful pubs around my house go buy this and take on some of the recipes. It is near impossible to name one that provides what I class as good pub food, instead it is either carveries or menus so big there isn't a cat in hells chance of anything being fresh. A simple mixture of some nice grill basics and 4-6 specials for the week should be enough for any of them.
