    Thanks for that Caroline – I have been wondering about this cookbook for a while. I have a few of his other books and while I love to look at them, I don’t cook much from them at all. When I saw a new one was out, I steeled myself against it, but when I saw how BIG it was, I was tempted. Very tempted. Hmmmn ….

    I copied a few recipes down – as this was a library book – and have since used his Apricot Slice, Baked Beans and Polenta recipes. The Boyfriend was very taken with the Apricot Slice!

    I too have this book. The photos are a bit food porny, but they are lovely to look at. (Isn’t that the point of porn anyway.) The Apricot Slice is by far the favorite recipe that I have tried.

    I do love food porn, I must admit. There’s often nothing better than sitting down with a cookbook full of glorious pictures of dishes that you have no intention of cooking! Bill is good on the food porn side of things, but it’s also great to find a book like that which has recipes you’ll actually use.
