A few days ago I picked up a copy (for less than half price) of The Ultimate Recipe Book produced by the BBC Good Food magazine, written by Angela Nilsen.
I read almost all of it through the same night.
Nilsen has picked 50 classic recipes and not only researched the history of each one but looked up as many recipes and variations as she can, sought advice from top chefs and experts and then tried out different options until she’s achieved her ultimate version of each dish.
I love the way that each recipe includes an introduction to the dish, comments from various chefs and experts and then feedback on some of the steps she took during the trial process which really helps understand why she’s gone for the final ingredients and steps she provides for the final recipe.
Most, but not all have photos of the finished dish.
I’ll be trying out recipes soon!
