À propos de l'auteur

Clearly these authors prefer to pretend we don't exist or perhaps their culinary skills do not extend to creating meals that smaller households could use.
This one, which purports to actually care about what people eat, totally ignores the fact one person households are on the increase and it presents us with a majority of recipes for 6-8+ people! The recipe for Vegetable Lasagne is for 12!
Most people, learning to cook for the first time, would either be single people, or beginners who would want to try cooking for one person before cooking for a crowd.
You need a lot of experience to scale down many of the recipes' ingredients for one person and this makes the recipes problematical.
The writer doesn't even bother to tell you if, or even how, you can freeze the portions you may have left over.
So, unless you regularly cook for your friends and extended family, your university campus or your partner's rugby team, you don't need this book.
If you want a book to teach you how to cook, that includes several recipes for 2 people & goes into more detail, get hold of a copy of the First Time Cook by Sophie Grigson.
Apart from Delia Smith's initiative in 1985, Jamie Oliver's Every Day Superfood shows you how to eat healthily and his recipes are for TWO people so you can either divide by 2 if you are alone or multiply for family occasions.
The Dairy Diary cookbook has a small section of recipes for one or two as well.
Darina Allen says she is campaigning for cooking to be included in the national school curriculum.
I am campaigning for smaller households' nutritional needs to be included as well!
I have always cooked from scratch, I like trying new things and recipes from all over the world. I'm forever buying cookbooks so I wasn't expecting mushy peas and traditional Western European recipes.
When I got it her choice of recipes was questionable and for the first time ever I put one of her books back. For all her trumpeting about local and slow food at a time when food delivery chains were crashing and burning, shortages were rife, panic panic PANIC was happening, instead of cooking locally available foodstuffs she was going for aubergines, avocados, freekeh (which I couldn't get at the local supermarket which is in a major Scottish city in the before times) and quinoa. Doesn't she know there's ethic problems with quinoa to do with supply? Many Peruvians are having their corps seized which means their children were and are suffering nutritional deficiencies because they could only afford pasta.
Has she forgotten food miles? What's wrong with locally produced food?
I was expecting roast beef, roast pork, (she did chicken), leg of lamb, chops, beef/pork/chicken pie, a casserole, spaghetti bolognaise, cooking onions, spare ribs, Boston baked beans with pulled pork (a fad that stayed with us), bacon and cabbage, chilli con carne, something with chorizo, soups, steak, some curries, fried chicken breast preferably wrapped in bacon, pasta alla medici, beef bourguignon, mussels, pizza, kofte, a chow mein, Persian chicken, laksa, vegetable Scotch broth, pho, schnitzel, how to crumb or batter a fish fillet for shallow frying.
Not pesto, refried beans, fried aubergines, mayonnaise, 2 hummuses, two recipes for boiled egg (one hard, one soft which seems a bit cheaty, surely that's one recipe?) granola and muesli amongst other things. It maybe a nice idea to make labneh, but like pesto, granola and mayonnaise it's not an essential 100 recipe when you're locked down, limited deliveries with children and working from home. Or even essential now, when for most of Europe everything is just about back to normal. Clearly food for those friends of hers who never see their own kids because they are, as she wrote dropped off and picked up in their jammies from the child minder's and can't manage to order a food shop. Whom I have no doubt, like the rest of us would have been too busy working, child minding and home schooling to have the time or interest to make mayonnaise or granola. It's the stuff they expect to get made for them when out. So I went from thrilled and then disappointed to get this book when I found it's for accountants when they want to show off. Not actual people who want to eat. She's even got menu's at the back to help them figure out what to serve as a multi course meal, clearly not daily home cooking fare. No wonder the price dropped from £22.00 (hard back) to £7.19 and kindle £9.99 to £2.99 whereas her forgotten skills book is, many years on still £23.99.
Also in her great to have items are a deep fat fryer and pasta maker? There's several good reasons why pasta makers fill up, not only charity shops, but fill up with dust in cupboards. There was a shortage of pasta at the start of the pandemic, but not now and if you can't cook for yourself or don't regularly have to do so, maybe just buy a packet of pasta rather than exploring a fad and cluttering up your cupboards with ingredients and equipment and don't buy a deep fat fryer, that's how you invite getting a visit from the fire brigade. I'm kicking on for 40 years, cooked for myself from scratch for 2/3rd of that and have needed neither so far (also no space). Nor have I felt the need to fry aubergines but if aubergines have to happen Imam bayildi would suffice. I'm also thinking if you can't put in a food shopping order, you have no business ordering a deep fat fryer, figure out online shopping and buy oven chips or learn how to boil some potatoes (she included a recipe for mashed potato which seems excessive given the internet never went down). If you are a normal person in a normal household you're unlikely to have the time and energy to make pasta. If you are fancy multinational company running CEO, are "able to run the country", but can't do a food shop, you definitely don't have time to make pasta, labneh, hummus, pesto, granola or muesli. Maybe just settle for some recipes on how to bung the ingredients for a casserole into a slow cooker so it'll be ready later on in the evening. Or is this for their au pairs to cook for them?
She should have followed the lead of a pair of hirsute biking men whose book I was not planning to buy until I read their synopsis. They messaged their fans what are your favourite and workhorse recipes you cook and eat on a regular basis? Then put out a book about those, things people actually cook and eat.
Very disappointed, she's lost touch and run out of ideas.
