Customer reviews

By Barbara Hodges 08 Jul 2010 4

Ina has done it again! Fans of her cooking style won't be disappointed in this offering. Simple food, well written, beautifully presented in her own chatty, friendly style. Yummy recipes such as Roasted Pears with Blue Cheese, Tuscan style Chicken, Roasted Butternut Squash salad with warm Cider Vinaigrette are sure to please.

Some of the info in the book is a bit superfluous - like who (outside of her local area) cares who built her Barn or who her garden designer is! This "surplus to requirements" information is the only reason I marked the book down slightly. However, to give Ina her dues, she recognises and supports her local crafts people and friends! And, in this "egocentric" world, that is a rare thing indeed!

The book is 272 pages packed with recipes, annecdotes and tips and represents good value for money. Well done Ina and I look forward to your next release.
