This is what a cookery book should be, not a collection of recipes that one is supposed to follow to the letter, but a guide to cooking with recipes offered as a basis with which to work; Nigel Slater positively encourages you to adapt them to your taste or whatever you have in your kitchen store. He talks about food and cooking, and dispels many of the traditional myths. He suggests keeping things simple - not too many ingredients, not too many herbs or spices (with a few stated exceptions); he is not afraid to speak his mind nor express his likes and dislikes. The book is beautifully illustrated, almost every page has a full colour photograph or photographs on the facing page showing the completed dish and sometimes the various stages of its production. The quality of the photographs is first class. The recipes are clearly described and invariable each has a few words of introduction or explanation highlighting particular aspects of the recipe or its ingredients. For me this is the perfect cookbook, I've always tended to vary recipes, sometimes to the complaints of others who say that the resultant dish is cannot be authentic! Well, now I have an excellent precedent.
