1.0 out of 5 stars Hopeless, 14 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Just Five Ingredients (Paperback)
This bloke represents everything that is wrong with cooking in the UK. Simple. Simplistic. Annoying. If you want to learn to cook then do not learn from this book. Try something a little more sophisticated and considered, and perhaps you can improve your life notwithstanding your background.

Who are you to tell people they have to eat only sophisticated food? Ainsley Harriot is the king of teaching the uneducated when it comes to the kitchen. Your comments rae extremely harsh and completely irrelevant to this book. He has been around for years and gives people enthusiasm to cook, i met him at the good food show in london a couple years back and he is a very pleasant bloke. He caters for those who want simple food, we don't all have time to slave away on some pretentious miniature meal. I understand fine dining but Ainsley is not fine dining (although I am certain he can be) he takes simple fresh ingredients and makes them into something a little more interesting.

I agree with Ms.L.A.Austen in that your comments are irrelevant and Harsh. We don't want to waste our lives gathering a ridiculously high number of ingredients and spending ages in the kitchen just to have a decent meal. Your review is simply pathetic

What an idiotic review. Many people already think that cooking good food requires a million ingredients you only use once and then throw away the spares so this type of book is perfect for people just starting out.
Ainsley Harriott has done more to make cooking simple so that ANYONE can do it than most other chefs and he should be applauded for it not subjected to this type of irritating commentary.
