Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Quick-fried onion and cabbage with black pepper

    • wester on January 16, 2018

      A nice way of cooking (Savoy) cabbage. Next time: more onion, more pepper (the recipe is quite vague about this; it just tells you to add plenty of pepper, and then even more at a later point), butter instead of oil.

  • Banana bread

    • alexthepink on February 23, 2021

      Delicious! Our favourite banana bread.

  • Pear and almond pudding cake

    • eliza on September 14, 2014

      Fantastic cake that is easy to make too. I added some spelt flour for part of the white flour. Not too sweet. Recipe available on river cottage YouTube channel.

  • Blueberry-banana milkshake

    • spharo00 on July 24, 2012

      A great frothy smoothie for breakfasts on the go. It was perfectly sweetened and is just the right amount for one person when the recipe is halved. I also added some oatmeal to the batch as the author suggests.

  • Double chocolate brownies

    • joneshayley on May 13, 2018

      Moist, unctuous and delicious! Easy to make, a perfect recipe. Will use this as my go-to for brownies

  • White winter soup

    • joneshayley on October 24, 2018

      Great soup, though the cream isn’t necessary.

  • Real English custard (or crème anglaise)

    • Netty4 on May 17, 2015

      This should say "real English custard"

  • Lemon curd

    • etcjm on November 11, 2018

      Works. Easy all in one recipe. I sieved so it was smooth because I really struggle to keep a low heat even with a diffuser. Little bit left after filing one jar which I just ate, because it was so nice. Would be lovely over ice cream.

  • Spanish omelette (tortilla)

    • etcjm on December 28, 2019

      Good instructions. I upped to a few more potatoes and 8 eggs. Finished in oven rather than grill because the oven was on for bread. As usual I made too much food and only a small amount of this got eaten. Hopefully good for lunch tomorrow.

  • Chocolate chip cookies

    • etcjm on October 07, 2020

      Brilliant. Works every time. Mix and match instead of dark chocolate, I use white chocolate or nuts as well. After a couple of times you'll know exactly when to get them out of the oven. In my opinion, baking paper works better than silicone sheets. They seem to make them oily. I haven't mastered doing them gluten free, they're just never quite right so I cook them normal and have to avoid the cookie tub!
