most of the recipes are plain, good old fashioned fare, but easy to cook and delicious to eat. i have tried kipper quiche (it was fantastic), bangers braised in cider (mouthwatering) and curried eggs with cauliflower (believe it or not, surprisingly gorgeous). and reading through the recipes there is none that seems would be particularly difficult or time-consuming to make.
most of the ingredients are easy enough to source. in fact, that should be ALL of the ingredients. there is nothing that you cannot buy down at your local monopolising supermarket or independent butcher. the most exotic item i could find was powdered mace, and even my rubbishy local asda had that.
and what's more, ms smith's royalties will go to CAFOD (the catholic fund for overseas development), a highly deserving charity.
a prized addition to my collection, i can recommend this book highly.
The recipes are great! easy to follow, often simple easy to locate ingredients, tasty! and nutritionally good for you. Dehlia was a master of her craft in her day and her teachings are just as important now. Its a book that will get well used, well read and well enjoyed and I heartily recommend it.
I use this book all the time for good homely reliable recipes - just look at all the things you can do with a pound of sausages, and every receipe a winner - you will not regret buying this book at all!!
