useful for washing hair in bed, no spillage and reasonably comfortable for the "patient". Worth buying if you are caring for someone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Echoes of elizabeth, 25 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Food of Spain (Hardcover)
I ordered this book after hearing an interview on radio 4's midweek. I much enjoyed Rick Stein's tv series and cook book that covered the same subject, but while Mr Stein's series brought back the memories of Spanish holidays, Mrs Roden's book provided real depth to the subject of cooking in this vast country so influenced by islam, judaism and christianity.

For me, there were clear echoes of that most famous of food writers Elizabeth David. Whilst it is true that Mrs David's writings have probably changed the face of british cookery more than any other author, the occaisional mild, (or not so mild) scolding tone of her writing is a minor irritation entirely absent from Mrs Roden's work. Whilst she writes authoritatively both regards the evolution of food and the wider history, Mrs Roden does not seem to take herself too seriously. On the subject of the blessed alioli and adding pounded garlic and olive oil to bought mayonnaise, she observes "It is cheating, but then many Spaniards cheat".

Claudia Roden's introduction to each recipe and each chapter, whilst highlighting native food writers, (famous in their own country, but not neccesarily outside of it) maintains the food writing, as oppose to cookery book structure. If you enjoy food writing and education as well as recipes, this book will reward the purchase. Buy it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic flour, 23 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All bread baking enthusiasts should try this flour. I happened to get some shopping delivered from Waitrose and they stock the bacheldre rye. After using it I looked them up and found out they deliver through amazon. Getting this delivered direct is an excellent idea and the four bag min makes it good value, this really is exceptional and I use the unbleached white as well. Excellent grain in the rye, (due to stone grind I imagine) makes it ideal for 50% or 100% rye loaves and for dusting to get a "bakery" feel to the loaves, or to stop wet sourdough sticking to a banneton. Best flour I have used yet and will keep on using, try it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming & hilarious, 3 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I remembered this from a few years ago. To my mind it is even better than the Royale Family, Craig Cash captures the huge caricatures that will be familiar to all of us, but somehow the writing and plot lines make you engage with them and feel the melancholy that is so often unspoken, but there in spades for them all. This in no way interferes with the comedic brilliance that really is laugh out loud. A true modern classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars even though not 3 pairs, 3 Nov. 2011
still worth buying, the twin skins running socks I purchased before this were a tenner a pair. These are even better, (just done the great south in them and not a problem or a blister). 4 quid sounds a lot for a pair of siocks but for running and cycling, these are ideal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great starter for breadmakers, 5 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is only a little book, but I found it fantastic for getting back into baking bread after a few years absence. The recipes are really easy and there is plenty of room on the page for writing in your own variations on the recipes. I bought this for a friend who had just started baking and they were delighted with it. Really easy to use and some great results.
