Love it, Hate it? That''s Marmite for you.
on 19 June 2016
Paul Hartley's range of UK Brand Sauces is a GREAT set of books to collect, from Colman's Mustard right through to HP Sauce.
Visually, being a Graphic Designer myself I have enjoyed the visual-graphic play of imagery alongside a combination of selected historical emphermia to help tell the story of Marmite. A true visual treat.
As for the history of Marmite, well this is OK but is condensed into 8 pages of an 80-page book. But, you will find throughout the book interesting anecdotes being used throughout the book.
Besides, all this there is also the threat of 52 exotic recipes for you to try out, from Quails Eggs and Brockwurst Salad with Marmite Dressing (ugh) right through to Spinach, Marmite and Mozzarella Muffins, all containing a good spoonful or two of Marmite.
So if you are a GB Lover of Marmite, as well as buying the Book on Amazon, you can also buy Marmite directly off Amazon Pantry https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/pantry/info as well, so check out here:
Marmite Yeast Extract, 500g
If you are interested in Paul Hartley's other books on Great BRITISH Brands that we all LOVE, then check these out as well:
The HP Sauce Cookbook
The Colman's Mustard Cookbook
The Heinz Tomato Ketchup Cookbook (Storecupboard Cookbooks)
The Lyle's Golden Syrup Cookbook
The Horlicks Cookbook (Storecupboard Cookbook)
The Bovril Cookbook
The Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce Cookbook
The Great British Storecupboard Cookbook
Overall I have given this book a 4-Star review because it is a visual treat, as said being a Graphic designer - I appreciate Good Design, But I also really do like to LOOK at PICTURES of the recipes that are listed in the Book.
There are NO Photos of any of the dishes provided as recipes - this is totally out of character for a Book on Cooking, to not have any photos of the cooked recipes showing you how amazing they look.
Love it, or Hate it?
+ 50+ recipes to work your way through
+ Great "Designers" Book, a visual threat.
+ Lots of past images of Adverts and associated emphermia
- No Photos of any recipes?? ODD ??
I have given this book a 4-Star review, as in comparison to Paul's other book in the series on HP Sauce, it seems as if this is missing photos of the tasty dishes you can cook.
