Review quote

'easy to follow and beautiful to look at' The Independent 'home cooking at its simplest ... 31 menus - each with a recipe for a starter, main and pud, with step-by-step photos for each - an old-fashioned idea, but a good one.' Sunday Times 'The layout is gorgeous and nostalgically arty ... a big, bold monster and an adornment to the kitchen.' The Guardian 'Wonderful...good straightforward cooking.' The New York Times 'I've never been so excited ... I learned an enormous amount about cooking from a master of the trade.' The Wall Street Journal 'I can't stop cooking from this book ... The only downside is that I had to come to terms with splotching grease on its lovely pages.' The Atlantic 'An esteemed colleague once told me that the highest form of intelligence isn't complexity but simplicity ... If this is true, then Ferran Adria's new cookbook, The Family Meal, may be the most effective expression of his genius to date.' The Australian Financial Review '...a refreshingly prosaic approach to food ...not just a collection of recipes but also an instruction manual' Sydney Morning Herald
