  1. I had such high hopes for this book but sadly they didn t really come true Rather than joyful, seasonal fare, the savoury recipes are almost all fussy salads, that take hours to produce and use all sorts of fancy ingredients but don t really seem to amount to anything that is going to be than a dinner party starter and some of the things Skye comes out with, talk about pretentious another old fashioned idea of mine is that celery eaten raw should be peeled It s an attention to detail that makes [...]

  2. at first didn t see the merit of this book None of the recipes really grabbed me I couldn t figure out why it won any awards But I went online and found the Petersham Nurseries and scrolled around the site It would be nice to visit that s for sure Sounds like an interesting concept to own a business such as this For a Cook like me the business inspired me, so I opened the book and had another look around and then did find a few recipes that I should try Didn t buy the book, I always borrow them [...]

  3. I found this book rather disappointing The photography by Jason Lowe is some of the best I ve ever seen, and some of the descriptions of recipes did get me excited and curious However, I can t shake the feeling that if I am just cooking at home, and not a world renowned chef, I am not good enough, and should not even attempt these recipes Gyngell has a certain negative voice tone throughout this book, that reads very opinionated and at times unnecessary Not only does she basically tell you to bu [...]

  4. nice recipes everyday people can accomplish for the most part without any crazy ingredients Solid recipes with some interesting flavor combinations that had me intrigued, but not so interesting as to be unapproachable The emphasis was on quality ingredients that can be used in multiple ways which I think is realistic to how most people cook I wish there were either photos of the food or fewer photos of unrelated things.

  5. I love this cookbook Skye s story is amazing anyway, but the way she thinks about food and how it all works together with the seasons and on the plate is wonderful Her Toolbox of condiments is the key to her beautiful food I love this book, I love the Petersham Nurseries and I love the understated elegance of Skye Gyngell.

  6. I took this book out from the library based on the critical acclaim I have seen given to it I enjoy eating with the seasons and appreciated the recipes being grouped together in this way A decent selection of vegetarian recipes as I m veggie and this was recommended in a veggie magazine, but not a book I d refer to that often Her toolbox of spices was also very informative.

  7. A beautifully photographed cookbook from the innovative chef Skye Gyngell The book is organized by season and the recipes are designed to showcase seasonal flavors and textures In summer, she offers up baked aubergines with tomatoes and tarragon, for example in autumn, baked quince with honey, bay, and verjuice The recipes I ve tried have worked out well.

  8. Beautiful pictures Not really what I expected, only found about 3 recipes I want to try Expected narrative I think.
