There are also instructions on how to make your own flavoured vodka.
Most of the recipes are straightforward to prepare. As well as the usual cooking instructions there are details for those cooking with an Aga which befits a country cook book.
Every recipe I have tried works beautifully and looks just like the photograph in the book. I am fortunate to live very close to her beautiful coffee shop Lotte's kitchen, and attended a cookery demonstration there which was also wonderful. As you can gather, I'm a big fan of the lady and her cooking. Her book would also make a fabulous gift for any keen cooks you may know.
