If you’re still believing the stereotype that the food in the UK is terrible, you’ll want to check out The Really Quite Good British Cookbook: The Food We Love from 100 of Our Best Chefs, Cooks, Bakers and Local Heroes , which has been complied by William Sitwell. Maybe the UK has a few terrible home cooks that have won them a reputation, but the fact of the matter is that some of the world’s best restaurants are in the UK, and some of the pub food is fabulous. This excellent cookbook will get you excited about cooking really good British food.
The cookbook features unique and innovative recipes such as Grilled Banana Bread with Tahini and Honeycomb, Potted Shrimp on Toast, Risotto of Courgette and Crab, Baked Cod with Olive Crust and Lentils, and Sticky Bourbon Ribs. There are some traditional recipes, as well such as Toad in the Hole (a favorite at our house and this is an excellent recipe), Flapjacks (these are chewy oatmeal bar cookies), Bakewell Pudding (which is actually a tart), and a Guinness Chocolate Cake.
Although some of the recipes have a lot of ingredients, the recipes actually turn out as they should. They are fairly easy to follow, and there are enough of them to make almost everyone happy. There are excellent photographs of the dishes, and a good index and table of contents.
While this is not a basic British cookbook, and is, rather, one that has recipes from some of Britain’s top chefs, it is a good one to include in a recipe collection.
