Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Chicken and miso noodle salad

    • Rinshin on February 15, 2018

      This salad handles variety of vegetables and herbs well. The ratio of dressing to this noodle salad is twice what you need. Best to halve the dressing. I also thought the amount of togarashi was excessive and was perfect at 1 & 3/4 tsp. I added asparagus and egg slices. Very good tasting and use of miso and soba. Red miso or brown miso works well. For chicken, used store bought rotisserie chicken. Photo added.

  • Orange yoghurt cake

    • e_ballad on July 15, 2018

      This was really doughy, with no ‘cake crumb’ to speak of. There’s lots of orange cake recipes out there - you don’t have to waste your time with this one.

  • Bacon and egg pie

    • e_ballad on December 11, 2017

      Whilst it tasted ok, there were a few flaws in this recipe. If you line a pie dish with puff pastry (base & sides), then proceed to blindbake the pastry, it WILL pool in a puddle at the base. Even after rescuing the general shape by smooching the pastry back up the sides, the base WILL still be soggy. So don’t bother about that step. As I was concerned that the short cooking time would result in raw cauliflower, I cut it beyond ‘small florets’ into almost-julienne: still barely cooked. I’d be tempted to roast the cauli in the time you would have wasted blindbaking, then adding it to the egg custard with the other ingredients.

  • Inauthentic tacos

    • e_ballad on August 08, 2018

      We found this quite bland. Needs a different seasoning mix to spark these up a bit.

  • Baked veggies and haloumi

    • e_ballad on October 20, 2018

      A fantastic roast veggie recipe if you don’t already have one in your repertoire.

  • Baked beans

    • Cati on December 25, 2017

      This recipe seems to be the same as in Mr Wilkinson's Favourite Vegetables, where it got a good review.

Reviews about this book

  • Eat Your Books by Jenny Hartin

    A great mix of easy throw together weeknight suppers (Double cheese quesadillas) and meals that take a little effort for a weekend (Prawn dumplings with Asian greens). Something for everyone here.
