Format: Hardcover
Although much more dessert and baking oriented than I would have liked, this book still deserves all your attention as it is the perfect complement to the first book. Most recipes are written in a delightfully humorous prose dusted here and there with a few opiniated, informative or funny comments. If you like no non-sense anti-diet be-happy food, this book if you.

Among the great lessons from that book is what Henderson calls trotter gear wich is simply pre-cooked and debonned pig trotters in their cooking liquid. This can serve as the base of deliciously unctuous braises, stews or pies. I will now keep a few bags of 'trotter gear' in my freezer in the same way many keep veal stock.

Format: Hardcover
At a stature of only 6 inches by 8 inches by roughly 200 pages, don't underestimate the power of this book. At times it had me giggling and blushing. The British humor and idioms in this book were so much fun. Favorite Quotes: "There is nothing finer than warm little buttock-like buns.", "Be firm but fair with salads". The authors' love of food as a restorative, steadying, comforting, and joyful experience made me feel warm and tingly. All of this love and comfort was balanced with stark descriptions and photographs. It really is a masterpiece that respects offal for exactly what it is; part of an animal that deserves our care equally to more popular cuts. This is definitely in my top 10 list of favorite cookbooks.

Fergus writes as if he is explaining these recipes while having a pint with you. They are easy to read and follow and are written with enough whimsy it becomes somewhat of a read just to see what he says next.

Great book. Simple and detailed; a great look at where modern English cookery can be. The desserts are a particular delight.

You won't be sorry! Fergus write with wit, humor and style. Also get "Nose to Tail. They are both worth buying.
