Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Caramelized fennel and red onions

    • debkellie on March 30, 2014

      I think I overcooked this, as I chose to oven bake rather than stove-top simmer. Nothing fantastic about it, but a nice change.

  • Coffee and almond crunch cake

    • eeeve on September 27, 2015

      Great cake - made with ground walnuts instead of almonds, and replaced some of the plain flour with spelt, to bring out the nuttiness. Just make sure to use really strong espresso or the coffee flavour will be lost. A dollop of creme fraiche transforms this cake into a very special one - absolutely recommended!

  • Cider and honey roast leg of lamb

    • KarinaFrancis on November 20, 2013

      This was ok but not as good as the enticing photo had me believe.

  • Vegetable stock

    • imaluckyducky on June 22, 2013

      Stock are pretty much anything you have in the fridge tossed into a pot... but if you're looking for a go-to recipe for a full-bodied veggie broth, I would recommend this.

Reviews about Recipes in this Book

  • Caramelized apple pie

    • Kitchn

      ...Gordon’s tart dough was difficult to work with. It kept tearing as I rolled it out, so I had to keep sticking it back in the fridge to let it firm up before trying again.
