About the Author

Tom writes a monthly column called 'A Man for all Seasons' in Delicious magazine. He is a regular contributor to the food pages of the Guardian and writes on a freelance basis for many publications, including Style Magazine (The Sunday Times) and The Daily Telegraph.

this is the way I cook - soup to feed the nation- casseroles to fill the hungry & everything I've tried to pass on - a wonderful book to give to everyone from 5 to 80 to enjoy

What a wonderful cook book!
This book is full of what used to be known as "nursery food", purely for comfort eating, but in the pages of this book, we learn very early not to sit in judgement. Just because the food does not originate at some isolated Italian Mediteranean location doesn't mean that it's 'bad' or 'junk'. In fact, good British food was always crying out for a champion and this book does the job admirably.
Eat Welsh Rabbit, Lancashire Hotpot or beef and ale casserole and eat it with relish! It's how we should have been brought up to eat and it's GOOD.

What a wonderful and increadibly useful cook book. From instant meals to something a little more challenging, it all in here and can make anyone look like a real chef!!! I love the way the book gives you ideas on how to modify traditional recipies and the wonderful colour photographs would make anyone's mouth water.

Tried so many of the recipes in this book, each one a perfect winner. Literally just like mother used to make.

I knew there was a bread pudding that wasn't a 'bread and butter pudding' and that wasn't loaded with eggs (yuck), one that my mother used to make, and here I found it, in this unassuming but essential book. My copy is all splodged and cracked down the spine, it is the most used on my shelf.

THE RECIPES IN THIS BOOK ARE SIMPLE BUT REALLY TASTY AND I FIND I GO BACK TO THEM AGAIN AND AGAIN. THE INGREDIENTS ARE VERY BASIC AND USUALLY I HAVE THEM IN MY CUPBOARD. COMFORT FOOD AT IT'S BEST!. MY DAUGHTER NOW HAS THE BOOK ALSO AND LOVES THE RECIPES.

The look, design and recipes of this book look fantastic. It instantly appealed to me, as I am a keen cook. However, appearances can be deceptive and the proof is in the pudding (as they say)and I can honestly say that every recipe I've tried hasn't turned out right. I'm not over fussy and am an experienced and confident cook, but I suspect there's something not right with the ingredients ratio on some recipes; the Chocolate biscuit cake for example was practically inedible. I'm surprised it's managed to attract good reviews as I found it to be possibly one of the worst books ever, sorry!
