5.0 out of 5 stars A TRULY EXCELLENT PRODUCT, 2 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This very good and real, genuine Cinnamon is not the common place spice that is sold in supermarkets which is not real cinnamon, this is the real McCoy and is shipped direct from the plantation in Sri Lanka. It tastes wonderful and has all the health benefits associated with real Cinnamon.

Not a bad book , albeit a vehicle to showcase the William Yeoward tableware and stemware, it does have a stylish array of table settings, some of which look glorious and with deep pockets are achievable, forget it if you are poor!


At Home with Carolyne Roehm
At Home with Carolyne Roehm
by Carolyne Roehm
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A GLORIOUS BOOK TO DROOL OVER, 2 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A glorious book filled with some wonderful photography and showing some very nice set tables set with antique porcelain, silver flatware and first quality crystal. This is how exceedingly rich people with the highest taste live, stemware that costs over £200 per glass is what I would call exceedingly rich as to have a dozen, plus spares and in different sizes and not be too bothered if one or two got broken to me, is in the rich mans world.
However, most of the table settings are easily adaptable to lesser pockets and with flair can look just as spectacular and therefore this book offers infinite style concepts to copy, so all in all, this is a wonderful book to drool over with a long coffee.

The Jacobites and Their Drinking Glasses
The Jacobites and Their Drinking Glasses
by Geoffrey B. Seddon
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £32.07

5.0 out of 5 stars THE DEFINITIVE BOOK, 2 Jan. 2017
A truly excellent resource for researching Jacobite period glasses and probably the definitive book available as information is somewhat scarce for this niche area of glass collecting.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT LITTLE BOOK FROM A LEGENDARY COOK, 16 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Eat Greek for a Week (Paperback)
Great little book from this fantastic cook, her series on television are legendary, she cooks honestly, passionately and uses the very best ingredients.
My only disappointment is that it is not available in hardback, I hate paperbacks with a vengeance but have had to go along with this format this time.
Recipes are varied and easy to follow and of course a Mediterranean diet, especially Greek, is probably the best in the world. You will not be disappointed buying this book, you will get great milage out of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A VERY DISAPPOINTING BOOK, 16 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really very disappointing, especially as it has major pre launch fanfares. The archival recipes that must be available and the history of groceries and provisions has to be prodigious but hardly any of these rich pickings have been employed, instead it is very trendy with a lot of silly drawings which take up valuable editorial space and rather poor quality photography.

Some of the recipes are good but on the whole this is a very disappointing book and is a fraction of what it could have been.

The Monet Cookbook: Recipes from Giverny
The Monet Cookbook: Recipes from Giverny
by Florence Gentner
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £24.99

5.0 out of 5 stars AN EXCELLENT BOOK WITH GREAT RECIPES, 16 Oct. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting book full of excellent recipes and a background history of Monet himself with many photographs. The copy is well written and the book is well laid out with good colour photography. I think a very similar book was out many years ago and whether this is some kind of reprint or am entirely new book it is long overdue.

I have a feeling that there were two books in parallel, the gardens of Giverny and recipes from Giverny, so this must be a new book. The food recipes are of the everyday kind, well Edwardian '"everyday kind" they do use a lot of butter and cream, I guess these can be substituted but then the recipes will not taste the same!

Summing up, this is well worth buying even if your not particularly interested in art or artists as it gives an insight into the kind of recipes frequently used a little over a hundred years ago and I have to say, they are really good, always using the freshest seasonable vegetables and fruit which
is becoming the trend again now, using seasonal vegetables and fruit grown in your home country instead of artificially maintaining a supply of a particular item by flying it halfway across the planet, it is usually picked early so it can ripen off on it's journey and invariably doesn't have any flavour.
