Editorial Reviews

Review

“Grigson is a learned, witty guide who deserves to be better-known in this country than she is.”—Library Journal
(Library Journal )

“I take as much pleasure in reading Jane Grigson's lyrical yet well-researched and intriguing introductions to each subject as I do in executing her recipes, or merely eating the fruit she writes so well about.”—Susan Campbell, Observer
(Susan Campbell Observer )

Jane Grigson's Fruit Book . . . is probably the most complete volume of all the fruit from apples to watermelon, with not only brilliant direction but good solid recipes. Judith Hill's glossary to the American edition is of enormous help. This fills a most important need on the cookbook shelves.”—James Beard
(James Beard )

About the Author

Jane Grigson (1928–90) was brought up in the northeast of England, where there is a strong tradition of good eating. In 1968 she began writing cookery articles for the Observer Colour Magazine; the Bison Books edition of Good Things is a collection from this highly successful series. Jane Grigson’s Vegetable Book is also available in a Bison Books edition. Grigson posthumously received the 2009 James Beard Foundation Cookbook Hall of Fame Book Award for her entire body of work. 
 
Sara Dickerman worked for years as a professional cook and freelance writer and is now the food and dining editor at Seattle Magazine.

Format: Hardcover
Jane Grigson has a chatty, readable style which inspires you to try recipes purely on her recommendation as she clearly writes with such knowledge. The book is organised with a section for each fruit, arranged alphabetically. There is an introduction to each which includes snippets of the fruit's history and occasional literary references. If this sounds rather worthy / stuffy then don't be put off. The temptation to read an entire section before trying a recipe is irresistible. It is ideally organised if you have been out shopping or picking and would like an inventive way of using your bounty. If you feel you are ready to move on from Delia Smith then this is a sure path of progress.

I was so glad that this book has been reprinted, Miss Grigson's books are always a joy. Cookery with a bit of wit and history thrown in. A great book when you have a couple pieces of fruit and need to produce a tasty dish, or when you have that sesonal fruit glut. Many of the dishes are simple but very very good.

Sorry but I had to return this book. It has no photos. Not one. Nothing to show how the dishes should look in the end. The book is over an inch thick and is written like a novel with lists of ingredients and paragraphs of instructions. I am not a good cook, I need photos to show me what it all means and how it should come together.
