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.
