Maureen: How could we not review this book by the patron saint of our blog?
Kirstin: It’s twenty years since the original release. I was given my copy by a fellow doctor. We both survived the trauma of housejobs together and she gave me the book as a thank you for being her bridesmaid the following year.
Maureen: How did that happen?!?
Kirstin: Seriously, I have no idea!
Maureen: This was the first British cookbook I ever got– Tim gave it to my on my birthday in November 1999. Now that’s taking me back. It’s still on my high-rotation shelf, 19 years later. I learnt so much from this book and made so many things from it, and indeed, still do.
Kirstin: Me too, me too! I’m looking forward to learning some new recipes now I can cook a little better.
Maureen: I know what you mean. It’s such a classic book.
