By cookie mcbookie 16 Jul 2011 3

This book is like David Beckham - sexy as all hell - but such a shame he has to talk...

It is easily the most beautiful cookbook I have ever seen.

It IS the new Britannia (circa Tony Blair / pre- GFC) - cool, whimsical, Kate Moss meets Coldplay, "keep calm carry on" ...

Alas, when it comes to communicating, something goes slightly out of kilter.
I tried to make the Sticky Toffee Pudding and the Cinder Toffee.
Neither worked out.
Here are the photos. Tell me if I did something wrong but to be honest I think the drafting of the recipes was lacking. It is a work of beauty though.
