This book looks beautiful and is lovingly produced with its brown-paper and gold embossed cover, and its ribbon bookmark. It contains 100 recipes (nibbles/starters, salads/sides, mains, desserts) based around British produce. It describes itself as `no-fuss' but I suspect that it is a special occasion cookbook only - unless you're the kind of person who is happy to cook up a batch of vegetable crisps as opposed to picking up a packet from Sainsbury's...

It doesn't use complicated techniques but some of the ingredients might be rather hard to find unless you're a dedicated foodie: quails' eggs, haggis, buckler leaf (?), wild sea vegetables, cuttlefish, caul fat (?), pigeons etc.

Not everything is so faffy, and there are some simple and delicious-looking salads and dressings, and desserts. Despite lots of Hix signature fish and seafood, this is very heavy on meat so you might like to bear that in mind if considering buying this.

This certainly isn't a healthy way of eating with lots of deep-frying and copious amounts of butter thrown into almost everything. But for special occasions or to conjure up a deeply impressive meal for someone special, this is ideal.
