After watching the BBC show that was the companion to this cookbook, I HAD to get it and give these recipes a try. I'm a good home cook (have traveled to 50 countries, always look for the best food experiences, can replicate most things at home, hardly use recipes anymore, can whip up a dinner party for 10 people with no drama) and I've tried 11 recipes out of here so far and found them all to be excellent. From impressive mains like slow roasted lamb over potatoes, honey roasted bacon joint, or pollock baked with chickpeas and chorizo, to breakfast treats like a smoked fish and creme omelette or sweetcorn pancakes, to the celeriac and bramley apple soup, to perfect sides like cheese scones, soda bread, or glazed carrots, to a lush spiced orange cake for dessert…this cookbook has given me those WOW moments every time I take a bite. The directions and portions have all been spot on too. I've identified 28 other recipes I want to try (really rare! I usually only cook 5 or 6 dishes from a cookbook) and I can hardly wait to get through them. This will change my eating forever.
Have so far made several recipes from this book.Everything has been very flavorful, and enjoyableYou do need to convert from EU measurement to American
Killer recipes, great photos, and appropriate for home & professions cooks. Super, super book.
Great cookbook. Have watched Tom's TV program and bought the book because of how much I enjoyed the show. The recipes are metric so it sometimes results in a challenge to convert the measurements, but the results are worth it. He does use ingredients that are a little more difficult to find in the U.S., but if you search the ingredient you can usually find an appropriate substitute. Love his philosophy about cooking basic good food.
I am watching on Foxtel, Tom Kerridge's program, brilliant. He made everything such fun and so I just had to buy the book. So glad I did.
Excellent recipes... Just be warned that this is the British original, nothing's been edited or converted for the U.S., i.e. temperatures, measurements, and some ingredient names (black cabbage is lacinto kale here), so expect to have to do that yourself.
Love the recipes, they are awesome and detailed. But I gave 4 stars because there is not enough pictures of the recipes. I love those cookbooks that shows you the pictures of all or nearly all finished dishes.
Tom is a fantastic chef. The book is good, don't get me wrong. But I think it could have done with some more photos - I like a book with a photo of every dish.I hoped it was as good as his TV show, but was a little let-down.
