The Free Range Cook
The Free Range Cook

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Book, 23 Oct. 2011
This review is from: The Free Range Cook (Hardcover)
This book has wonderful photo's and recipes, the recipes all seem straight forward - yet special. I found the desert section had the most eye catching recipes. I was invited last minute to a friends house(the day after the book arrived) so I quickly prepared the Ultimate Chocolate Cake - I am not a keen baker, but this cake was really fantastic, so moist and so quick, all the ingredients mix into one bowl, then into a cake tin, then to the oven. The Ganache topping simple and divine too!
Next I want to make The Strawberry Cloud Cake.
I also liked that through out the book there where a selection of menu plans where Annabel had used the recipes in the book to compliment each other (often a tricky task when inviting friends over) One combination I want to try is: (might change desert option though?)

Caramelised Onion and Feta Tart

Braised Oxtails with star Anise
Parsnip and Carrot Mash
Gingered Bok Choy

Ruby Roasted Pears with Creme Fraiche

Sure it doesn't go as far as Jamie's 30 minute meals to show how to cook everything together (timing etc), but a lot of her recipes also explain how to reheat, conserve and then serve, so things can be prepared ahead of time.
There are also recipes or ingredients that go on to be used in other recipes - all very interesting
A book I will cherish.

5.0 out of 5 stars An ABC hit, 17 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Peppa Pig abc (Paperback)
My daughter Loves Peppa and loves this book.
She is two and a half and still a bit small to do all the activities, but loves me reading through all the alaphabet with Peppa. There are also stickers in the middle which she loved. The vivid colours, and funny dialog make learning Fun! On the last page there is all the alphabet and she has started to select letters and say M is for mummy and recognise which letter her name starts with.
Great fun and a great buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for a herb lover, 17 Oct. 2011
This is a gorgeous book with beautiful illustrations and lovely to read, I liked that even the history of the Herb was included in each herb description, a great book to have on hand for referral on growing advice and cooking uses. The only thing that would have made the book a touch better, would have been if there were some photo's of the prepared recipes - although it would have been hard to incorporate photo's with the illustrated flow of the book.
Great for a herb lover or someone wanting to learn more about herbs.
