However, this book is just right - in that the recipes are excellent and there is some great stuff in here but, most importantly, the recipes are well written and easy to follow.
I think this is perfect for those who want to cook quality dishes for dinner parties but not spend several days in the kitchen preparing for it!!
If you're looking to enjoy a sociable afternoon with friends & family creating a meal you can all enjoy, this is the perfect book for you.
'Away from the high-octane energy of the professional kitchen, Gordon's home is a relaxed family affair, where cooking s fun and everyone gets involved in preparing food for family and friends. The food Gordon cooks here embodies his strongly held views: use in-season, fresh ingredients at their peak; support local producers and farmers' markets whenever we can; and celebrate our food culture and its many influences.....
...'Cooking for Friends' is full of Gordon's best-loved versions of classic British dishes.....and contains more than 100 of his favourite recipes, which he loves to cook and eat with friends and family - uncomplicated recipes but with Gordon's remarkable feeling for flavour and his technical know-how.'
From the introduction:-
'As a chef, I work at a thousand miles an hour, but when I'm at home, I want to slow down. I leave my chef's jacket at work, and I walk into a domestic setting, where everything is completely different. At home, our kitchen is family-run, and it's a relaxed place. A lot of people see cooking as a chore, but we bring an element of fun into it..........'
GR adorns the hardback cover which opens to 269 high quality matt pages, split over 9 chapters:-

Each chapter opens with some relevant notes and a list of the recipes contained within, for quick reference.Read more ›
And I like the look of the insides more that the other books too. It's not as cluttered and is very smart--but I think I'll add a few of my own splashes from the hob.
A must have for everyone who loves to cook good food with simple, quality ingredients.
