Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
This is one of those handy little books that combines both really useful tips:

"To sterilise your kitchen cloths and sponges - microwave them on high for a minute"

or

"Don't just season your salad dressings, season the salad itself before dressing it"

and lovely little quotes:

"The only time to eat diet food is while you are waiting for the steak to cook" (Julia Child),

"Cauliflower is nothing but a cabbage with a college education" (Mark Twain)

Notebook sized, but with just under 200 pages, this will appeal to most cooks, from the beginner to the most experienced. Wit and wisdom are served up in bite-sized pieces and are easily digested.

It is a small book full of quotes.
the problem is that the cover is covered in textile and there is a label on the back that when you try to remove it leaves all the glue on the textile.

This is one of those books that make a great stocking filler for those people you never know what to buy for. It is a great little book published by Quadrille Publishing and is full of good advice for cooks. The good advice is in many forms; Quotes from a wide range of people (cooks, food writers, journalists, actors and singers to name but a few); cooking tips; those old wives tales for around the kitchen; healing properties of foods; or theories concerns food or cooking in general.

The book has many inspirational pages within it and would make a great gift to food lovers or wannabee chefs. There is plenty of good advice within the book, along with humour and wit from many famous faces.

The book has been compiled by Lewis Esson, who is an experienced editor of food books and this book shows a vast experience of life within the world of food.
