I almost never buy books new, what with this little thing we have called a library. Especially not recipe books, thanks to Al Gore's invention and all.
This book is one exception I treated myself to years ago after reading reviews on various blogs.
It is the happiest, most charming cookbook I've ever seen. Worth buying just for the photography. Almost makes cooking seem like something I'd like to spend time on.
The recipes? Oh yeah. I've tried a few. They've all been good.
The other night the cupboards were suddenly quite bare, the masses were grumbling and I went to this book for help. Apple bread. We had three apples left, one turned out to be rotten but only two were needed. Success!
Relatively healthy and really very good.
There were only a few crumbs left for us to fight over the next morning.
