Customer Review

on 18 June 2013
Not a bad book - full of ideas that sent me out to buy the stuff I needed for three or four recipes immediately. And the recipes are also very easy.

However: I'm not sure who tested the recipes or copy-edited the book, but a soup I tried had nowhere near enough liquid given in the recipe - it was a rather nice stew until I added more; the pork and leek pies - delicious, with yummy pastry - had far too much filling for the amount of pastry, and also would have made significantly more than the 12 muffin-sized pies I made in my one tin, whereas the recipe specified that it made 8; I'm currently making the beef in red wine with Stilton scones, and noticed that there's no salt in the list of ingredients for the beef part; oh, and the soup had no salt and pepper listed in the ingredients, either.

And then there are the many proof-reading errors ...

It's not that I dislike the book - I don't, and I'm using it. But it has the air of a publication put together in a great hurry, and I detest sloppy work like that.
