Editorial Reviews

Review

“Some cookbooks have us leaping directly into the kitchen without another moment's thought. Others make us want to curl up on the sofa with a cup of tea and a long stretch of time to read every single page. This new cookbook from Skye Gyngell does both. Her dreamy descriptions of cooking with the seasons read like letters from your best friend's travels abroad, while the recipes themselves are just begging for us to throw a dinner party. . . . This is a comprehensive cookbook with plenty to inspire and challenge us as home cooks. It's also a gorgeous one, full of photographs and snippets of wisdom that encourage us to eat well and be happy.”
—TheKitchn.com, 2/17/11

“Arranged seasonally, it takes nature's bounty and, with a few surprising spices and sauces, presents simple, sophisticated dishes. The recipes are easy, and the beautifully photographed edition is compact enough to carry to the market to help you figure out what's for supper.”
—The Wall Street Journal, 1/29/11

“Bold, thoughtful, warm-hearted cooking—a delight.”  
—Nigel Slater
 
“Skye Gyngell is one of the most innovative and talented cooks to establish herself in the last few years. Her passion is defined in the complex flavors and textures of her food.” 
—Rose Gray
 
“Skye’s food has such simplicity with such enormous flavor—she is exceptional.”  
—Maggie Beer

Format: Paperback
This award winning (2007) cookbook has a bunch of recipes which can be labelled Modern English (no resemblence to tradition English food). It is similar to the Ottolenghi cookbook in a way. The photos are marvellous too. All recipes are restaurant quality so you will have to accept more ingredients and preparation time, but nothing outside the normal if you enjoy cooking. Excellent for entertainment because the author also pays quite a bit of attention to how the dishes look. There is a decent, but not large, number of recipes in the book, but what is remarkable is how well they all taste. (Well the 10-12 dishes that I've tried.

There is only one aspect of the book that deserve one star: After using the book three times, the glue in the binding dissolved. This is really totally unacceptable. So try to find the hard cover edition, which probably is better. But the publisher totally incompetent publisher/printer ought to take heed.

I've enjoyed this cookbook and how the recipes have been broken up by season, but some of the ingredients have been more difficult to find. I made a great eggplant curry which was really fun, but took a long time. This book takes time and uncommon ingredients to really enjoy. I think it's worth it, but it's not for the everyday meal.

The recipes in this book are fantastic, her combinations of spices and ingredients are spot on. Everything from the simple roasted tomatoes to the more complicated lamb and prune stew are fantastic. It's worth ordering fresh spices and grinding them yourself to follow her recipes.

This is the first book that inspired me to buy more and more. So delicious! I've been using the same recipes for over 2 years now. Again, could not ask for more.

I've had this cookbook over a year now and have made several recipes from it, none of them have disappointed. It was a newspaper review of the Carrots with honey, lemon zest, and thyme which made me buy the book: I don't like carrots, but this recipe is delicious and I've made it about 5 times already. Other recipes that I think are breath-taking are Baked eggplants with tomatoes, tarragon, and creme fraiche (made 3 times), Cauliflower soup with Gorgonzola, and Fall coleslaw. I found that her recipes will withstand substitution and still be quite good. I also like her easy-going attitude about cooking which encourages me to 'just give it a go' and not worry about the outcome.

This is the cookbook I pick up first when looking for something to cook.
