The Official Peaky Blinders Cookbook: 50 Recipes Selected by The Shelby Company Ltd is based on a popular British television series and is full of old fashioned (the series takes place starting 1919) yummy British recipes that were served during that time period. Most are simple to make, and most sound delicious.
The recipes are easy to follow and are for dishes that even non-British and those who aren’t familiar with iconic British food will love and will be very tempted to make. Most call for easy-to-find ingredients that are available at any mainstream grocery store both in the UK or the US. The recipes don’t follow proper recipe protocol (most irritating since they assume the ingredients are yours as in “preheat ‘your’ oven” instead of preheat the oven – how does the author know if it’s “your” oven instead of your neighbor’s?). This type of unprofessional recipe writing is usually found in the thousands of recipe blogs that have suddenly appeared on the internet and show that many of the authors haven’t ever written a recipe before posting on their blogs. Although the author doesn’t know how to properly write a recipe, he does know how to develop a recipe and this faux pas won’t matter to most who are using this fun cookbook. Fans of the series will especially like this cookbook, and even those who just like British food will find themselves wanting to prepare almost every recipe in the cookbook. My queue gets longer every time I pick up this cookbook.
All told, almost everyone – those familiar and those who aren’t - with the series will have a good time making the recipes.
