Top Customer Reviews

This book was the product of a TV series written with the intention of rebelling against the modern industrialisation, consumerisation, industrial production and commercial debasement of food. The Ladies wittily and elegantly subvert what we are told to think about food with realistic, easy and absolutely delicious dishes, emphasizing the quality of ingredients (fom top-class fore-rib of beef to picking the very best from the butcher's affordable sausages) and the respectful care with which a cook should treat food. Despite their much-vaunted (and over-emphasized) eccentricity, and undeniable poshness, these Ladies have a true and rich understanding of good food and of how to use it and celebrate it to its best advantage. They are an inspiration, and more importantly a useable inspiration, not just to other posh and jaded cooks, but to more conventional people (self included) who want to make the best of their weekly food budget to their own advantage. They are a uniquely British and odd phenomenon, but their philosophy is universal and I hope and pray that it be continued.

A comedy of two destined misfits making life work. A tragic comedy of sorts but very amusing how they overcome all that life throws at them.
