This book is fantastic. Easy to use. Well presented. Child friendly. Ingredients easy to purchase. Well thought out and written. This is one of the best user friendly cookery books on the market.
This is a HUGE book that has taken me weeks of looking through, just to get through the 740-odd pages and read the few lines of comments that the author puts at the top of each recipe. The book is about 5cms thick and has 521 recipes (according to the acknowledgements). The idea is that there is a savoury recipe for every day of the year, set out in weekly blocks, using seasonal ingredients. There are also a few recipes per week for sweets or cakes as a treat. The author has kids herself, so these recipes are all tried and tested at her family table and often she writes a little comment about whether her children liked it or not.
I'll pick some random pages/recipes to give you a flavour of what's in there:
Doughnuts, duck in a pot with vegetables, lamb in a pot, rhubarb crumble with ginger cream, fresh pappardelle with tomato and basil sauce, mackerel salad, spiced loin of lamb with pilaf rice and cucumber salad, apricot and raspberry cream tart, carrot and courgette muffins, crispy pork sandwiches with apple sauce, pasta with courgettes, tomatoes and pancetta, coffee cake with mocha icing, red pepper and tomato risotto, ham and mushroom lasagne, meatballs in a pot, sausage and cabbage stew, roast chicken with mascarpone and herb stuffing and fennel gratin, sliced oranges in syrup with ginger madeleines, mini nut and chocolate tarts, and plaice goujons with tartare sauce.Read more ›
Simple, readily available ingredients and straightforward preparation and cooking. Good variety. I am delighted with my purchase and would thoroughly recommend it ; great for when you just can't think of what to cook. The really good thing about this book is that it is intended for use in UK; I have tried several American books and web sites which do the daily recipe thing , along with a weekly shopping list, but found they just didn't work for me. It comes with a nice kitchen proof jacket and book mark . So glad to have found this.
