Our customer reviews

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. more
