Miss South has blogged at www.northsouthfood.com alongside her brother Mister North for the last four years. She is also the Food and Drink editor at the Brixton Blog and the Brixton Bugle. She has written features for the Observer Food Monthly, been featured in regional and national press, and on The Food Programme on Radio 4.

The overall production is cheap and not worth the RRP. Something beautiful and individual could have been created but instead you're left with a book filled with illustrations that appear to have been stolen from a government sex education book.
Now, out here in the sticks we many not be able to get some of the more exotic ingredients but Miss South often includes options that we can access. I could get a real sense of the various communities in Brixton from this book and - most importantly - trying my hand at some of the recipes, I found that Miss South's spelling out of ingredients and methods worked admirably; you can't say that about the vague and/or inaccurate instructions in many other cookbooks. I still may not know what alligator peppers are, but, as just one example, the recipe for the Columbian Slow-Cooked Pork worked an absolute treat.
The layout of the book is simple and wholly effective for what is a functional tool. No need for glossy, gastro-porn colour photographs, because, unlike one of the snotty reviews said, myself and friends thought that the deliberately modest illustrations by Kaylene Alder were wholly appropriate to the ethos of the book as a whole. I think that Miss South and Kitchen Press are to be commended on the sheer straightforwardness of this publication.
I've found the recipes I've used so far easy to follow with delicious results. I didn't even know there was such a thing as Japanese tapas, so Okan's otsumami section is a revelation - easy-to-find ingredients combined to make dishes I never would have thought of that have had my friends begging for more! Looking forward to Kaosarn's moo-ping - thai pork skewers with a kick...
It's a real treat to have a book with such a range of distinctive styles that tie together into a beautiful whole.
