"Christmas at the comfort food cafe"
R. N. Lee
This was another good read, by chance I read the summer at the comfort food cafe first, so glad I did and perhaps should be told to people to do so, both books I was not able to put down, and if I did I was thinking about what the next chapter was about. It was my first read of Debbie Johnson's books , and now I look forward to all of her others.
I loved 'The Birthday That Changed Everything', but this is even better. A wonderful story that had me laughing and crying from start to finish. The incidents with dog and children took me straight back to holidays spent down in Cornwall with my own family! A great summer read.
Totally loving these recipes, very easy, quick, my children eat them and I seem to have most of the ingredients in my cupboard. Total winner, especially the Beef Goulash and creamy scallops with bacon, delicious! What also appeals to me is that I would make every recipe, so many cookery books only have a few recipes that I fancy trying.
Love love love it. Follows on from Polpo with a similar style, format, design and great range of recipes. So many things I want to make, the dishes made so far are sublime - comfort food yes, but done with glimmers of panache throughout.
"I am now enjoying thoroughly nicely cooked food from my wifes lovely home cooking"
I am now enjoying thoroughly nicely cooked food from my wifes lovely home cooking. Although I think she fancies the chef on the front cover. But I'm ok with that as I can't cook anything other than a cheese toastie and I'm called James.
"The book has a good recipes, well explained the only trouble is that ..."
The book has a good recipes, well explained the only trouble is that the description was not in the information, and it has almost all the book called "tradicional Favorites" from the women institute, so, if you buy this avoid buying the other one.
"Hairy Bikers: Mums Still Know Best"
(Auckland, New Zealand)
I really enjoy the programs that I have seen with The Hairy Bikers (aka Si King and Dave Myers). I find their down-to-earth approach refreshing and ‘real’, and they present food that is familiar, yet innovative and exciting – new views on old favourites, with the ability for any cook in any kitchen to be able to recreate these wonderful dishes.
The Hairy Bikers have produced two books with ‘Mum’s’ recipes – Mums Know Best, and Mums Still Know Best. These are great books with recipes that you will remember and recall, and new ones to add to your cooking repertoire.
In this book there are eight main sections: Comforting Food – includes Cream of Tomato Soup, Sausage Casserole, Home-made Fish Fingers, Shepherds Pie, Baked Egg Custard and Custard Tart and many more. Al Fresco – includes Chicken Kiev, Patatas Bravas, Minced Beef Pinwheels (which are divine), Mud ... full review
