Product Description

Review

"I want to cook every single recipe in this book!

I own every one of Lindsey Bareham's books. There isn't a recipe in The Trifle Bowl that I don't want to make right now; but just as much, this is a book to read as well as cook from. And actually, I love it so much that along with my books, I gave it to my daughter to provide comfort, pleasure and instruction when she went off to university and her first independent kitchen in the autumn." (Nigella Lawson)

"Lindsey Bareham is one of those writers - like Elizabeth David or Jane Grigson before her - whose books have the power to change the way people cook and eat." (Sunday Times)

"A great read as well as a really useful cookery book." (Waitrose Weekend)

"Lindsey Bareham is a star. Her recipes brighten up each day for the desperate domestic cook. Her idea of good food is my idea of good food - easy on the skills, easy on the eye and tremendously tasty." (Matthew Fort)

"Not only a collection of great recipes but also a unique glimpse into a terrific cook's kitchen." (Telegraph)

Lindsey Bareham is a seasoned food writer, having gained experience writing for Time Out, London Evening Standard, and The Times. The Trifle Bowl and Other Tales is her 13th recipe book, so I expected great things.

This book is unlike any other I have seen before. It's not ordered seasonally, or by ingredient like most, but by equipment. There is a contents page at the front of the book listing various utensils or cookware alphabetically. Each page then features a recipe or two in which said item is a key element. There is a more detailed index at the rear of the book if you are looking for a list of recipes.

This unusual method of ordering recipes also looks at the objects themselves - their history, design evolution and why they are good at what they do. You may think that the order of recipes would be confusing, but it's actually quite handy to dip into for inspiration.

The recipes are approachable, clearly written and easy to follow regardless of experience level. There are many familiar recipes, some with new and interesting twists such as Shepherd's Pie with Lemon Mash

I like that there are many small serving recipes, recipes that have two servings rather than the usual four or six. This is very useful when you don't want to create mammoth quantities of food that will go to waste.

Because of the range of equipment used in the various recipes, some are easier to accomplish than others. Some are quick and simple, whereas others are more complicated. There is enough diversity that you could find something for a dinner party, or just everyday appetising food.

There are a few images scattered throughout the book; some photos that are well staged, and some quirky illustrations. A few more images would have been nice.

I love Lyndsey Bareham's cookery books. It's so nice to read someone who isn't out to 'entertain' you with her writing; although she's written quite a few books she still isn't on the 'celebrity' cook list, and I, for one, hope she never gets sucked into that world. This book is a rather quirky take on cooking, and the recipes are organised not by ingredients but by the cooking utensils needed to make them. One thing I really like about the book is how she shares stories of her life which are brought to mind by the utensils she uses daily in her kitchen - and her appreciation of the people who have handled them before her, the memoried they evoke, has made me more appreciative of some of the stuff I use in the kitchen. I love the photo of the jug filled with wooden spoons - I too love wooden spoons and collect them! I've made a couple of things so far: the lemon and honey madeleines which turned out well, and the pork and lettuce parcels which is delicious. All in all, a lovely book - one to savour in many senses.

I am a fan of Lindsey, have most of her books and this one is a good book for the collection.
There are really nice writings as well as good recipess. She never fails to please the home cook, no pretentious foams here!
Her writing style is relaxed and chatty.
Try the viatnamese chicken patties with mint salad and roasted peanuts or caramalized rice pudding with Vodka plum puree......see I knew that'd get your attention!

My lovely niece sent me the Fish Store a few years ago. It is now part of our family life; Crab cakes, lamb burgers and on a cold dark night after a long day at work, everyone loves the Smoked Haddock Risotto with Parmesan and Chives.
This book is a wonderfully original idea that probably chimes for so many. Recipes are related to the items of kitchenalia. The recipes are reliable as ever and the writing and illustrations make family catering an act of pleasure. Even after a lo-o-ong day at work.
Buy it for someone you love that has cooked for you. I'm off to order one for my niece

Best and nicest book I,ve bought in a long while, and trust me, I buy a lot. It,s like a peek into Lindsey,s kitchen cupboards, raking around, pulling thing out and asking, " what do you use this for, where did you get it, or I,ve got one like this". Not only fabulous recipes for the family and friends, but stories that relate to each item, or person. A trip down Lindsey,s personal memory lane,it,s a great privilege. Buy this book, and then get a copy for your Mum, best friend or cooking companion. It,s a real feel good book with beautiful photographs and drawings. Can you tell how much I love it???

By Autamme_dot_com TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 26 Aug. 2013
Format: Hardcover
This is a thick, heavy, richly-illustrated cookbook with a difference, it is arranged by the key piece of kitchen equipment to be used.
So you can add quirky to that list of adjectives too. Yet it seems to work in a rather bizarre, unexpected way, as you probably do read the book sequentially to get a bit of an idea of what recipes might be there. One does not imagine that someone wakes up and thinks "I think I'll cook with my earthenware pot today!" This is a lot more than just another recipe book with a quirk or two though, as the author "talks on and on" about this, that and the other, discharging bits of history, culinary know-how, trivia and probably everything but the kitchen sink (or was that there too?) along the way with a host of fairly interesting recipes.
Unless you like ordering books blind from an online store and taking a (good) chance, this is probably a book you want to see for yourself first, to hold it, to feel it and to see if you gel with it. It certainly is a (positively) different book. A few of our usual niggles exist here (with a twist), namely the lack of a stated preparation and cooking time and the reliance on sole metric measures - normally it is sole U.S. imperial units that create an issue. It would have also been nice to have had more photographs of the finished dishes too for additional inspiration.
If you approach this book with the right attitude you stand to gain a fair bit of additional knowledge without much effort, as well as many interesting recipes. This is not probably a book for times when you are harassed in the kitchen and just need to get a recipe out and get cooking. This book is for a more leisurely time and where you can enjoy the totality of what you are reading and doing, rather than just a "means to an end.
