5.0 out of 5 stars Worth getting the hardback!!, 3 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Jane Grigson's Fruit Book (Hardcover)
The book is fantastic, with stories of the types of fruit used in cooking being told along the same lines as in her wonderful Vegetable book. I bought two copies: one for a friend and one for me... and I got one in the paperback and one old hardback. The paperback (Penguin edition - I normally love Penguin books - but I think they got the format slightly wrong on this one...) the binding seems really tight and the book does not stay open easily, which would be fine if I were reading it just as a novel, but... for a cookbook... one might want to be able to leave it open at a page! The hardback was a good edition and quality book that stayed open on the page you were on... and let you appreciate the comments and not have it snap shut again... I suppose this is the big difference between quality hardbacks and paperbacks!
I recommend the book completely, as it makes cooking more fun as she tells her stories about the main ingredients... and I would recommend you get the hardback - even at twice/three times the price...
