Review

'Happy food' (Delicious)

There are four branches of Bill's Cafe in the south but, if you're nowhere near one, this is a great taste of his seasonal, relaxed style of cooking and eating. (Tesco Real Food Magazine)

Bill's recipes are consistently fresh, vibrant and bursting with flavour... there's certainly something inside for everyone to cook, eat and share. One thing's for sure, this is a cookbook made for people who are in love with food. (Square Meal Magazine)

Lovingly crafted guide to a cooking year... Bill is clearly a bit of a food champion himself and his enthusiasm is evident on every page. (Mail on Sunday You Magazine)

One of the prettiest cookbooks I've seen in a while. Both the pages and the food vibrate with colour and energy. (BBC Good Food Magazine)

Bursting with vibrant colour, this is a fun celebration of good British produce. (Sainsbury's Magazine)

Book Description

This beautifully produced recipe book is the perfect showcase for the critically acclaimed Bill's Produce Store and its sumptuous, affordable food.

I expected the book to look good and it does. What I was more interested in was the quality of the recipes. I've found them original (not in a ground breaking way but imaginative takes on old favourites) and reliably good. I've owned enough recipe books to be wary of newcomers - there's nothing more frustrating than misjudged quantities, incorrect cooking time, cheaty ingredients. These recipes are fun to cook and delicious to eat. Bill's chicken Caesar has already become a staple (I've never had better), his slow cooked lamb, although slightly more complicated, is a great improvement on other versions I've tried and the marmalade flapjacks are gorgeous - not too sweet as is so often the case. Of course there are recipes I won't be tempted by but mainly I'm excited by the prospect of cooking my way through the book. An excellent addition to my collection!

I have cooked from this book, have eaten and am still smiling! Intriguing and good fun to look at, lovely recipes with in-season vegetables and fruit, and friendly good common sense from the authors. I heard Bill on Radio 4's Midweek today, and thought he sounded as nice as his book!

If you've ever eaten at one of Bill's cafes you will appreciate the humour in the book, as well as the ethos and seasonality. I've only done four recipes so far (only just got the book) and they were fantastic. I'm eager to try other things as time permits.

This book is a pleasure to read, it's so much more than a bunch of recipes. It's colourful, full of life and gives me a reminder of great visits to the bill's in Lewes. A must for the kitchen and the coffee table.

I have been a great fan of Bill's since it opened and have yearned for the day that Bill published a cook book, and so when I saw it in the Lewes store last week - I bought it immediately! the reason I'm disapointed is that most of the recipes are straight forward and fairly obvious to create - 'stewed fruit,' 'broad bean mash and mint,' 'rhubarb and banana smoothie,' 'eggs benedict.' I was hoping for his wonderful 'pumkin and roasted vegetable lasagne,' 'morrocan tagine' and some other great Bill's favourites! there's no great suprises and I suppose thats because Bill does'nt want to give away all of his recipes because we wont still go there! Clever! But I still love Bill's and will always frequent it whenever I'm in that neck of the woods!

Most of the cookbooks you get are just a gathering of recipes, and - except for the different recipes- they seem to be all the same. This one is different. It's a cookbook that really deserves to be called "book".
The first thing you'll notice is the design of the book. It's colourful, varied and exceptional with a lot of illustrations and photographs - there is not a single page that looks like the other.
The book is well structured and divided into four sections: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Each chapter starts with a little introduction to the season. You'll find an overview featuring the seasonal "Champions" (seasonal products which are used) and the topics addressed in the chapter. These topics can be certain types of food like "spring salads" or events like "mothers day" or "halloween". There is a lot of useful information to each of the "champions" and the book gives some lovely new ideas for homemade gifts, party food or new takes on old recipes.
At the end of the book there is an index featuring the different ingredients. For those who prefer to get more of an overview, you'll also find terms like "salads, soups, icecream".

Long story short, this is by far my favourite cookbook. There are so many recipes I want to try, so many stories to read and a whole bunch of ideas to spice up everyday cooking. If you're looking for a traditional cookbook that'll give you a quick recipe the moment you ask for it, this is probably not for you. But if you want to know more about different food, backgrounds and love to get lost in a book I'll definitely recommed it.
