This is a lovely book, with excellent vegetarian recipes too,
By A Customer
This review is from: Delia Smith's Winter Collection (Hardcover)
This book is lovely, I can't wait to start using it. As a Brit now living in the US, I find the bad name that British food has, especially with Americans, to be wrong. This book and others by Delia show that our cooking can stand up there with any others. Rock on, Delia!

You're so right. Who got this ridiculous old reputation started, anyway? The vast majority of Americans have no experience of British cooking whatsoever, except through the traditional recipes that they cook and enjoy every day! So it's a bit rich for them to think that British cooking is substandard. Anyway, as well-travelled Americans understand, good British cooking was always found in family kitchens rather than restaurants. Now it can be found in restaurants too! Time to bury this calumny and lay a slab over it: "60 Million Satisfied Diners Can't Be Wrong".
