Ok, for years I’ve been dishing out the same old boring dry food for my two labradoodles because it was just so darn easy. But the experience seemed perfunctory, and I thought if I’m finding this boring then H&D might be too. Then along came Debora Robertson’s new book and the cooking/feeding thing changed. To be honest, I’m fearful of the kitchen, but there’s something about Debora’s witty writing style and recipe choices that inspires confidence. Not only has her book brought out a whole new me (in the kitchen anyway), but I swear the dogslove me even more! I can recommend the Chicken & Fennel Au Gratin (& the human version too), and, because I’ve got a weakness for peanut butter, the Peanut Butter & Banana Bites and the Summer Pupsicles with banana & peanut butter. For H&D it’s like every day is Christmas … but they don’t even know the real Christmas Dinner is still to come!
Fantastic little book, full of fun, no-nonsense recipes and snippets of doggy wisdom. Our two boys especially love the sardine and sweet potato bake, have to lift their dishes before they have a hole licked in the bottom of them. love the idea that, with some extra seasoning, the dishes are can be made for the owners also. Liking the illustrations throughout the book too. Have bought several for our local dog club, I know they will be very popular. Thank you Debora for the inspiration to venture into alternatives to mass produced dog foods.
I love this book. I’ve been cooking for my dog for a while now -cheaper and healthier for her and has stopped that pesky dry skin she use to get from kibble. This book is such fun and has some great recipes in it. The ‘doggy breath bone’ biscuits gets my dog from one side of the park over to me quicker than anything else. This is now a kitchen staple.
I've already tried two of the easiest recipes and my dogloves them. The instructions are simple to follow. Nothing to do with the recipes but the artwork in this book is worth the purchase price alone.
Olive McDinmont LOVES this book, it is full of super, easy to prepare meals, snacks and treats. There is practical, sound advice and very useful information for every dog owner. It is also beautifully illustrated and is a good sturdy hard back. Great buy.
