Review quote

'The sort of cookbook you want to lounge around in bed reading, as much as cook from ... A lesser book would've let its theme take over, but Kate is too good a cook for that. The recipes are well tested and easy to follow, and I have no doubt many of them are going to become firm fixtures in my culinary repertoire' London Review of Books, cookbooks of the year. 'A book to inspire a laughter-filled, themed dinner party for adults, but it is equally useful isn you want to present 'hunny' and rosemary cakes to a little reader who has just discovered the joys of Winnie the Pooh' WI Life. 'If food can comfort, so can books' Guardian. 'The ultimate present for anyone with a penchant for both books and baking' The Literary Edit. 'Foodie fiction fans will love The Little Library Cookbook. Delight in Narnia-style turkish delight and roast goose that will convert even the surliest Scrooge' Food Magazine. 'Bringing together two of our greatest loves, food and books, The Little Library Cookbook is an absolute joy' Stylist. 'Perfect for any bookworm or foodie ... It is the most wonderful idea, with recipes for food inspired by novels from Adichie to Zusak. Trust me, you need this in your life! A triumph' The Halcyon Days of Summer. 'Has great charm and is a very good read ... Part of the delight is in seeing what Young has come up with ... You might think such a book would simply be cute; it's much more than that' Diana Henry, Daily Telegraph. 'A treat. The Little Library Cookbook has done that rare thing of sparking a chain reaction of memories - every page is a catalyst to remember some previously forgotten meal, or book, or piece of delicious nostalgia. I love it, and I can't wait to cook from it!' Ruby Tandoh. 'Wonderful! [Kate] takes us on a fabulous food journey. It makes me want to both cook and read more at once' Tessa Kiros. 'A cookbook for readers' Nigella Lawson. 'What a joy ... If there is comfort food, there is also comfort reading, and The Little Library Cookbook is it' Bee Wilson. 'A work of rare joy, and one as wholly irresistible as the food it so delightfully describes ... It is a glorious work that nourishes the mind and spirit as much as the body, and I could not love it more' Sarah Perry, author of The Essex Serpent.show more
