Still searching for the Roast Chicken
on 20 May 2017
I spent quite some time reading and rejecting many of the Amazon reviews for this book before deciding to buy it. I reviewed a sample ot it on Kindle as well. I must admit I'm pleased I finally bought it. The recipes are excellent and although my first and still used, well thumbed is an Elizabeth David paperback purchased in 1969, I have really enjoyed Simons' reflections. A little cheesy at times but hey he now lives down South from Northern roots whereas I've migrated north from southern stock. What he does do well is to reinforce individual taste, giving hints that will facilitate ones' own cooking.
I'd highly recommend it- even to the experienced gourmand!
