This is a really interesting and well written book. Johnny Scott, voice of the countryside and food historian is an absolute joy to read. You feel as though you are in safe hands, cushioned against making some terrible mess of a lovely piece of meat. Carving is becoming more and more of a lost skill, we are lucky there are still people around who care! Finally i can get my friends round for a proper roast, safe in the knowledge that JS's wisdom is in the bookshelf - thank you!
