Customer Review

on 15 March 2011
This was actually a present for my mother (I already have a copy). We're both big fans of cookery books and read them like novels. The book is unashamedly British in every way. It explores and promotes a much maligned area of cooking - British cuisine - and carefully elevates it to a well deserved higher plane. It does so with genuine affection and is supported by some quite wonderful, evocative photographs.

The book is worth buying for the images alone and its design, writing and production values are equally excellent. What I also like is the fact that the cover is very heavily laminated, making it practical to use in the kitchen without spoiling what is after all more than just another cookery book.

The text is structured around regions and what I particularly liked was the feature on the area in which I grew up - the North West and Cumbria - with beautiful images and narrative about Morecambe Bay, plus great interpretations of traditional recipes - many including the deservedly famous Morecambe Bay shrimp.

The book's other recipes are excellent too: my favourite (at the moment) being lager-steamed salmon with basil and lemon, but there's plenty more to whet the appetite and provide much highly enjoyable browsing for a long time to come. It certainly stands out among many of my already good books and this is one that I will re-visit (in more ways than one) time and time again.
