Reviews - What do customers think about Duchy Originals Cookbook?
Hearty English Recipes Sep 4, 2008
While the review below is correct about the content of this cookbook, Such a low star rating is a bit unfair ... if one is looking for a very handsome, lovingly produced collection of recipes that highlight regional fare & natural ingredients, this is a great book to pick up. The food - as expected - is hearty, and the pictures provide a real incentive to make the meals. If the taste of a big, freshly prepare English Breakfast sounds good to you, you'll probably enjoy most of the recipes this book provides. And if you want to learn a little bit extra about the ideas behind this return to slower, more organic methods of producing (not just the food itself) you can sense the people behind the cookbook really care about what they're doing. Probably a 4-star book, but I gave it 5 to balance the measly amount of stars below ...
Good but not great book May 17, 2008
I like this book. It's handsome and the recipes are interesting. However, I admit I doubt I'll try more than a few of them. There's a great deal of text about Duchy Originals and about cooking and food in general. If you like that, you'll love this book. If you'd prefer more recipes and less background information, you probably won't care for this book. This book would make a marvelous gift for an Anglophile who wants to learn more about British cooking. Howevever, I admit I rarely open it when I'm in the kitchen and in the mood to try something new. My idea of a successful cookbook is one that is dog-eared, stained with ingredients and has tons of notes scribbled in it. This one sits quietly on the shelf and has few notes.
