Comfort, decadence and real personality - all in one book!,
This review is from: Lotte's Country Kitchen (Hardcover)
This book is beautiful, inspiring, funny and delicious! More than a cookbook, it has recipes (my favourites are Daisy's steamed chocolate and almond pudding and crunchy nutty chicken with chilli jam) and it is well written, the photography is stunning and you really get a taste of food, life and Lotte's cottage and garden through a whole year - with stories, recipes and anecdotes. IMO there are so many celebrity chefs out there that produce book after book and cash in on their status but this is so different, Lotte really wears her heart on her sleeve and what you get is a narrative, a story and a whole lot of inspiration! I have been lucky enough to visit Lotte's home on one of her fabulous demonstration days and this book gives you a real taster of what its like to be in her kitchen with her company eating her great food! Cant wait to get trying out more recipes!
