Customer Review

4.0 out of 5 stars Part biography, part food, part knives - a slice of life?, 9 April 2012
This review is from: Bought, Borrowed & Stolen: Recipes and Knives from a Travelling Chef (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Firstly, this is a really beautifully produced book, as so many cookery books seem to be these days. I've always enjoyed McEvedy's writing and recipes in the Guardian and am appy to applaud anyone who opens up a fast food joint cooking decent tasty, food.

Worst things first - the knives, even for a knife fetishist like myself, are a bit of a gimmick and add little to the joy of the book, essentially serving to break the book up into geographically oriented chapters.

The recipes are a little hit and miss, some are interesting and sound like worth cooking, some are rather prosaic and others are pretty obscure. Interestingly my difficult to please vegetarian daughter was quite taken with the whole thing and keen to cook from it: that's a pretty strong plus for me.

So, glad to have it, enjoyed browsing it, but not quite sure how much I'll end up using it.
