The English have a reputation for having bad food. That reputation is absolutely bogus; some of the best restaurants in the world are there, and much of the food is mouthwatering. To prove the point, Lynn Davis has released an excellent cookbook, The Flexible Foodie: Delicious Recipes from Heart of a Kent Kitchen. This cookbook is very British, and is full of interesting and delicious recipes.

The first chapters are dedicated to basics, such as ingredients, equipment, conversion charts, troubleshooting, and different methods of cooking; the methods chapters include basic English recipes such as Roasted, boiled, and baked (or Jacket) Potatoes with variations, and the proverbial chips.
The recipe chapters include appetizers, sides, salads, vegetables and sauces, main dishes with meats, poultry, and seafood, soups, and desserts. Many of the recipes have Middle Eastern, Asian, and Italian nuances with a British twist.

Most of the recipes are fairly easy to prepare, and are presented in the traditional manner so that they are easy to follow for both beginning and advanced cooks. The emphasis is on being flexible with the recipes, and readers will appreciate that things don’t need to be exact.

There is a small photograph of most of the recipes, which makes this cookbook even better. It will be difficult to decide which dish to make because there are so many that look good.

All told, this is a very British cookbook. It is fun to read, and includes mouthwatering recipes that are flexible. It will make a good addition to any recipe collection.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
