Proper food writing,
This review is from: Fifty Recipes To Stake Your Life On (Hardcover)
I rate this book very highly because it's much more than a traditional recipe book. Some are simple recipes and some are complex, but the really entertaining thing about the book are the reasons behind why you can stake your life on the recipes. This adds a fascinating dimension to cooking and eating and it's genuinely interesting to read why using such and such an ingredient or method or approach makes a difference. It's a brilliant present for anyone who likes food as, with the reasons and stories, it's a pleasure to read as well as to cook from.
