I LOVE this book. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 out of 5 stars is because it’s not based on Australian seasons and common foods. It is a minor complaint, but was enough to stop me giving it the full marks, sorry.
Why do I love this book? Well, I’m very much into eating locally and in season and this book is perfect for that! Although this is the 10th edition, I’d not seen it before so can’t compare it to older versions. Though I will say the gorgeous layout is very inviting and the pictures entice you to read more and before you know it you’ll be half way through the book.
The recipes are easy to follow and simple without being boring… if that makes sense? I love the little stories and examples of why in season and local is better for us. It helps encourage and re-inforce why we should all have a passion for these food principles.
The extra information on the foods, how to store them, how to prepare them, etc at both the front and back of the book is really helpful without being boring either and I really did enjoy reading this book from cover to cover. I’ve already earmarked a few recipes to try and slip into my next few meal plans… though I have to say spring was my favourite section and I REALLY can’t wait for it to come back to my hills!
The only minor niggle I have about this book is I, personally, didn’t like all the religious quotes and such. But I did not mark the book down because of them as they were my own problem, not that of the book or those who created it with their best intentions and beliefs. But, yes, I did find them unneeded. But they were easy enough to ignore and the rest of the book is just such a wonderful breath of fresh air when it comes to food and cooking… it makes up for this personal issue.
Would I recommend this book to others? Yes and no. I would definitely recommend it to someone of my cooking and ‘what’s in season’ skill level as it would be a great addition and inspiration to work from. But I wouldn’t suggest someone starting out with ‘in season’ cooking to buy it here in Australia as there are a lot of mental changes you need to make and aspects you need to rethink to use it. Then again, if a novice wanted to buy it and then use it to learn as the go – not a problem, great idea.
If you’re into eating within the seasons, growing and eating your own food or supporting your local farmers while feeding your family – this book is really worth a look. Please make me an Australia one so I can love it just that little bit more. :-)
If you have a passion for healthy eating using seasonal and local foods, you will be happy with this book!
