This edition is actually a hardcover bound book, not a paperback as mentioned in the description. A wonderful mix of recipes from a fantastic, much loved and respected organisation here in Australia that has been around since the 1920's. In fact there are more than a few recipes in here that have been passed down from mother to daughter since that time, so they have been well tested. Another plus to remember is that the majority of these recipes were concocted or adapted for farm kitchens, which weren't well known for having all the latest equipment and mod cons. So you can be sure that as long as your kitchen has a cooker and a fridge you'll do fine with this book.

Lovely, and made a pretty good main meal with some homemade bread (a Paul Hollywood bloomer, since you ask). I used Savoy rather than white cabbage, and left out the blanching step (because I'm lazy). Very simple indeed, but delicious.
by jammydodger about Soupe au chou from Delia's Frugal Food
This is currently my go-to white bread recipe, although I've tweaked it quite a bit. I had some issues with the bread not being cooked, particularly if I've put a tray of water in the oven, so I've had upped the temperature, (240c, turning down to 210c after 25 minutes), with much better results. I also tend to mix in the evening and prove overnight in the fridge, which fits in much better with my day to day life. The bread tastes better too.
by jammydodger about Bloomer from Paul Hollywood's Bread
Tasty. Light, summery. The chile added a nice subtle kick. With all of the oven pre-heating and roasting, took an hour to cook.
by wcassity about Cod with roasted tomatoes and summer squash from Home Cooking with Jean-Georges
This is really the first recipe from this book that I only felt just ok about- mainly because I didn't love the prominence of the currants. I made a half recipe with a mixture of raspberries (2 cups), red and white currants (1 cup), and blueberries (1 cup, subbed out of necessity since I didn't have enough raspberries). The currants that I was able to obtain were VERY tart- I think maybe more than the recipe intended. The cobbler dough was great the day I baked, but was really hard the following day. It is the same as other recipes which were successful, so I suspect that I either overworked the dough (or may need new baking powder).
by TrishaCP about Raspberry red currant cobbler from Rustic Fruit Desserts
Not a bad dish, but not extraordinary either. I do like the corn and quinoa combination so I would definitely try tweaking this recipe. I would start by omitting the honey. The corn we get from Maryland in the summer is already so sweet that the honey in the dressing was really superfluous. Also, the shallots need to be REALLY finely chopped- they otherwise overpower every other flavor.
by TrishaCP about Corn and quinoa salad with lemony mint dressing from Dishing Up Maryland
Super! A great way to use carrots from the garden. Kind of out of my comfort zone, and i loved it!
by lhkelsey about Spicy Moroccan carrot salad from Plenty
Very meh. Sauce was okay, but I would have used 1/2 cup of chicken broth, not a full cup. Chicken took forever to cook. The timing was wrong in the recipe. I'll stick with roasted chicken.
by lhkelsey about Sautéed chicken with lemon-rosemary sauce from Keepers
This is basically eggplant halves baked with tomatoes on top. Unfortunately, the eggplant and tomatoes don't really meld into a single dish. Compounding this is the fact that it's also hard to eat (the tomatoes cut easily, the eggplant not as much).
by twoyolks about Monsieur Henny's aubergine gratin from Patricia Wells at Home in Provence
This is a tasty, quick meal, assuming you do some advance prep as the tomatoes roast for hours. I used roasted cherry tomatoes- red and gold, and some plum tomatoes. That gave a nice contrast of sweet and tangy. I didn't taste the garlic though at all.
by Barb_N about Pasta with corn, slow-cooked tomatoes, and garlic confit from Food52
I agree with everyone else that this is a wonderful, special salad. My husband stirred the pita bread and almonds for me while I put the rest of the salad together. I think you could make the pita and almonds ahead of time and throw the salad together just before you want to eat it. We both loved the crunch of the pita and almonds plus the sweetness of the dates against the other flavors. Like others I also used Aleppo pepper with the sumac on the pita and almond mix. I cut the dates into 1/2 inch pieces and that seemed to work well to distribute the bits of sweetness throughout the salad. We served this with Diana Henry's Israeli Chicken with Moghrabiesh, Harissa-Grilled Peaches and Mint from A Change of Appetite. The combination of flavors was spectacular. This is a salad I will make many times again.

This was good, but I would add more wasabi to the butter. It wasn't spicy enough for us.
by JKDLady about Grilled tuna with wasabi, sake, and lime from Back to Square One
The Moghrabieh and Harissa-Grilled Peaches are fabulous as a side dish to the chicken. I did not have a spicy mustard and used Dijon on the chicken but it turned out too bland. Next time I will find a spicy mustard. Also, make sure your oven is hot enough to really brown the chicken. My chicken was done but not as nicely browned as in the photo. Next time I think I will turn the oven temperature up a bit. We used some Harissa as a condiment on the leftover chicken and it was so much better than the first night's chicken.
by hillsboroks about Israeli chicken with Moghrabieh, harissa-griddled peaches and mint from Change of Appetite
This is a wonderful salad to make when cherries are at their peak. The colors are striking and the flavor is good. The white balsamic vinegar dressing is very mild but with the crunch and zip of the gremolata and tang of the goat cheese along with the sweetness of the cherries, it is just right. I used Kirsch in the marinade for the cherries and marinaded them for the full two hours.
by hillsboroks about Goat's cheese and cherry salad with almond and basil gremolata from Change of Appetite
I was dubious about the addition of butter, but in the end the pesto was good.

What I really enjoy about this recipe is the contrast of the hot, crispy bread to the soft beans, creamy cheese, cool tomatoes, crunchy lettuce, spicy chipotle sauce, and tangy, refreshing guacamole.
