All the recipes we have tried from this book are great, a good addition for those who are fans of Leon book 1 (the best of the series in my opinion), though there is a little cross over with it.

If looking for a brief summary review of Allegra's new book; in a nutshell I would highly recommend it based on its wonderfully straight forward and tasty recipes. The book contains 200 recipes from Allegra's life; they are the type of recipes you want to keep within the family and pass on for generations to come. It is visually very pleasing to cook from being rich in colour images and text.

If you're a fan of LEON / Allegra's other books then chances are you will also like this book. I have posted a couple of images on this product page and a full recipe list at the end of this review.

Now for those of you wanting a more in depth opinion of the book, here goes...

This book has been eagerly anticipated in our household - especially by my wife who is big fan of Allegra's big and bold wholesome style of cooking. Having done some of the trial recipes and being a big fan of Allegra's my wife could barely contain herself when the book arrived - and it certainly does not disappoint.

First of all if you're a fan of the images and style of any of the LEON books or Allegra's "Bought, Borrowed & Stolen", as we are, then you will love the layout and style of this book, richly illustrated with beautiful images and descriptions (I have uploaded a couple of images to try and give you an idea of the general style / tone of the book).

The introduction explains the premise of the book; inspired by her mum's recipe book (a "tatty orange photo album which contained all her favourite recipes") which was sadly lost, Allegra sets out to create a legacy recipe book for her own daughter. By publishing her recipe book it will not have a chance of getting lost (sound logic and a legacy we are very happy to be able to purchase).

Heard the author on Radio 4 and thought her story was lovely about the cookery book from her mum and then passing the recipes on to her daughter. Thought this would be a great cookery book with recipes that really work and taste great too.
I wasn't disappointed. I've cooked a few recipes from the book for my teenage sons and they've loved everyone.
Really glad I bought the book.

A brilliant simple recipe book that every household needs. It contains so many interesting homely meals many of which are long forgotten. There are intesting snippets of personal information at the beginning of each chapter and the recipes are written as you would speak, written in good basic cooking language that anyone can understand even if they dont have a catering degree!
Highly recommended for everyone who cooks or wants to.

Joyful recipe book - full of love for food and cooking. I'm not an adventurous cook at all but find Allegra McEvedy's style gets me excited about cooking - I've already cooked five recipes from this and have ear-marked several more. Good every day stuff for myself and my kids and also dinners to share and classics to master. Would make a great gift book as well as a staple book to keep going back to.

One of those rare wonderful cook books that are as pleasurable to just sit and read as they are to cook from. A fabulous broad range of recipes and I'm sure it won't take long for there to be notes on every page (as Allegra encourages). A book I hope to keep and pass onto my children.
