Sue Baker's view...

If you love good food and want to eat the best British ingredients – then this is the book to keep by your side. If you look at books such as this; large hardback volumes by leading chefs, they can be daunting. Untrained, the ordinary cook often doesn’t have the skills or equipment to attempt many of the recipes but do give Mark Hix a closer look. This is a splendid balance of recipes, simple through to elaborate, the ingredients may be on the expensive side but they’re to the point, concentrating on the flavour of your ingredients not swamping something as good as prime Welsh lamb in fuss and flummery. You could learn to cook with this book, learn to appreciate British ingredients, expand your repertoire to include razor clams or teal or even learn to enjoy the humble turnip. I’d give it 6 stars out of 5 if I could.
