Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Sausage rolls

    • MollyB on October 16, 2018

      These rolls are fabulous but a lot of work. I served them with some Puddletown Pub Chutney (from Three Little Figs), which was the perfect accompaniment. We also made the quick puff pastry from the cookbook, which worked beautifully. The recipe editing is not quite as good as the results - the filling made twice as much as we needed, so I'd cut it in half if I made it again.

  • Quickest puff pastry

    • MollyB on October 16, 2018

      Very good, but bear in mind that "quickest" is relative. You still need several hours for it to be ready to use. I made it for the Sausage Rolls in the book (which were great). The editing is sloppy - it references an illustration of how to fold the dough that is not there. You can figure it out from the text if you read it closely and have some experience with making pastry, but I wouldn't try this particular recipe if you're a novice cook.
