I bought this when it first came out in paperback in 1989 - it's been my bible for Middle Eastern recipes ever since - superb :kneel: :luv:

Lindsey Bareham on Good Things by Jane Grigson.

I love Grigson's writing and I think I have most of her books.

Like Ms Bareham I found my original paperback copy of Good Things yesterday, and thought I must get a new one as a couple of pages are missing

I've heard of Yan Kit So, but never used the book, she does seem to be a favourite with food writers
Probably won't be making a recipe that requires 20 large scallops, don't want a new mortgage

Never heard of her. Sorry. The recipes look impossibly long, even those not requiring 20 scallops.

But given that I can no longer eat oysters, 10 scallops between the two of us is but a small indulgence ;) :chops:

Oddly that’s one I don’t have

Good article though, and I learned one of those things that’s obvious when someone tells you - if you are going to serve mussels shelled, there’s absolutely no point in removing the beards before opening. <doh>

Went to Nathan Outlaw’s London restaurant last year. Very good

Interesting. I probably ought to get the MargaretCosta book, I suspect I make some of her recipes as my mother was a devotee of her Sunday Times column and I still have the handwritten recipes I brought from home, most of which are probably hers.

I have had the burnt cheesecake in Bilbao, surprisingly simple

I have got various books by some of the authors, but the only book on the list in this house is the Madhur Jaffrey one. I did consider getting the Rick Stein book after Floyd on Fish but it didn't happen.

I have the Jane Grigson, the Elizabeth David, and the Claudia Roden

I don’t have that Madhur Jaffrey book, but I have her first BBC book which repeats a lot of the recipes

i have just treated myself to the claudia roden and margaret costa books from abe - both very good copies, in hardback, for £9.19 including postage i don't think that will break the bank.
i have a couple of madhur jaffrey's - and quite a few other indian/eastern cookbooks so maybe i'll wait for another time for that one.

I have a copy of Simon Hopkinson's boook , and I would have said precisely this, if Nigella Lawson had not said it first:-

" there’s not a recipe here I don’t want to eat immediately."

I keep it apart from my other books, it's by my chair - handy for a quick ten minute browse, when I'm in need of being in that sort of mood. As recently as last Sunday, I made his "poulet sauté au vinaigre".

It’s a favourite ‘read’ here too ... and it’s time I made that recipe again ... my palate’s a bit jaded at the moment and it’s just the thing to perk it up a bit :chef:
Thanks for the reminder Gruney :wave:
