David Loftus has a warm, friendly and informative writing style too, so much so that I would love to see him do more cooking or food-related writing in future. If it's possible to get away from behind the camera for long enough. I do want to thoroughly recommend it for other readers who love cooking and admire the wonderful images he makes that brings cookery books alive, but, unfortunately there are a few problems.
It is a compilation book, mostly. For some home cooks, myself included, this can be an ideal way to introduce new or old recipes that encourage further discovery. For others it will mean duplication of recipes as I spotted one I already have in another book. Understandably, Jamie Oliver features quite strongly with nine recipes included overall. As I'm not really into all of Jamie Oliver's recipes I don't know if these have been included in his other books.
There's something a bit odd going on with quantities. Recipes can range between 2-4 person servings, then from 6-10 people. It does make me wonder why the recipes contributed weren't edited or standardised for 2-6 people?Read more ›
Rather than breaking down chapters into starters, salads, mains, desserts, sides and so on, it is broken down by geographical regions (the chapter titles in chronological order are: London: The Journey Begins, Europe, Egypt & The Middle East, India, Asia & The Orient, America, The Atlantic Crossing and Great Britain: The End of the Journey). This non-standard layout can make the book seem a bit jumbled and random. For me there are too many conserves/chutney, cocktails, salads and soups with not enough main courses and desserts. The serving sizes vary too much. This I suppose is a consequence of using recipes from many different chefs, but it all adds to the confused feeling of the book. It it hard to be sure but with some of the recipes the photographs seem to include ingredients not in the recipe. The layout of the book just seems all wrong to me, and the look and feel of the book I don't like. It's hard work to look through all the clutter to read the recipes. It all seems like an attempt to be very artistic, which may appeal to some people but unfortunately not to me. The quality of the recipes is what I'm mainly looking for and sadly on that count this book is a bit of a let down.Read more ›
