This is a nice compact book, and despite the fact that it is paperback it seems solid and well put together even if you bend it back so that it will stay open at the page you are working at. It contains: beef, pork, lamb and veal, poultry, seafood, sides and extras such as apple chutney and chunky guacamole salsa. There is an introduction with some personal stories and tips, information about equipment, preparing and cooking the roast and carving. Each section has an introduction and each recipe has a few sentences about it. Recipes have serving size, cost (inexpensive, moderate, splurge). Prep time, start to finish time- which is a huge help in preparing roasts, suggested sides (recipes for them and pages are given), leftover tips and market notes- what to ask for at the market are all included.
About every 3rd recipe has a picture. There is a roast directory which shows meat equivalents in the US and the UK, roasts and pages are categorized by time and occasion, costs, calories. The index lists dishes by ingredient.
This book would be suitable for beginning and even experienced cooks. It would make a great addition to any cookbook collection.
After a few pages of roasting basics, the recipes follow. Easy to read, easy to follow. Each recipe details time involved, how many it serves, and the cost. This last is a GREAT notation for any recipe. Helpful since the cuts of meat involved here range from "everyday" to "Holiday" pricing... why don't more cookbooks do this? The physical construction of the book is good too - it stays open to the page your are on, which is good design in a cookbook.
Every recipe has been a smash hit so far. The recipe on the cover (the Perfect Sunday Roast) is now our go-to. A recommended read.
Some old favorites as well new ideas
Book arrived as promised I have spent several hours just sitting and reading
