“Thomasina seems to be knocking up delightful dishes for the sheer joy of it – and why not? Her passion for robust and sometimes exotic flavours is balanced by a sound nose for the best seasonal and local ingredients. She's just as good at shopping as she is at cooking. The result: her food is delicious, and her recipes are an uncomplicated treat.” Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall
“This is a book for cooks whose love of good food extends to sourcing, cooking, eating, sharing and dreaming – about good food. Tommi Miers may be young, cool and clever, but she's also the original earth-mother, ladle in hand.”Prue Leith
“This has an excellent selection of recipes. Thomasina is an original and talented cook, definitely one to watch” The Bookseller

This is the book you need when your friends come round on Saturday night for gossip around the kitchen table. Have some crusty bread at the ready, do a little advance preparation and then cook some Prawns al Ajillo in less than five minutes - completely delicious.
Her char-grilled courgette wedges with basil, mint, chilli and lemon are now a staple side dish in my home and she has great variations on slow cooked lamb and new ideas for steak. Thomasina can do homely too; her blackberry and stem ginger pudding is the best thing about Autumn!
A book for the kitchen, not just the bookshelf!
Others include roast chicken with saffron cannellini beans, guinea fowl with lemon & caremelised garlic, rack of lamb with a spiced butter, several mashes and some lovely garlicky potatoes. The selection of desserts is small but the summer pudding nougat ice cream and blackberry & stem ginger pudding are worth mentioning.
The book has been written with verve and when I flick through it the urge to head for the kitchen kicks in. One thing to mention, although it isn't something which bothers me, is that comparatively few recipes are accompanied by a photo. There are photos dotted about, some of which probably relate to recipes in the relevant chapter but they are not necessarily placed side by side with the recipe.

One of my favourite cookery writers. I think that although this is Thomasina's first book ( I believe) you will find lots of recipes that you want to try. I certainly did.Published 14 months ago by Mr. M. Jones
Excellent cookery book with unusual combinations of herbs and spices used with both fish and meat dishes. Lovely photos and clearly, cleanly laid out. Super!Published on 6 Aug. 2011 by Lynn8
