boring Delia-type food!
on 30 April 2010
I thought I loved Nigella, and have had many successes with her much more interesting Nigella Express... I am primarily a fan of Nigella's desserts, and this book has very little in terms of that! Might get Domestic Goddess instead...
If you like Delia Smith, traditional roast dinners and classic retro dishes such as coq au vin, this book is definitely for you! Unfortunately, I love Ottolenghi, vegetarian food and exotic, creative dishes, and this book doesn't really cater for that kind of audience...oh well, it does have useful tips about baby and kiddie food (however, this is not useful for me yet...), some low-fat recipes... A definite plus is the inclusion of rhubarb in lots of the desserts, such an underrated ingredient!
