About this deal

the recipies are easy, affordable and very easy to follow, and he makes me laugh with his great sense of humour. Despite the fact that I don’t eat meat (and Tom has some amazing meat based dishes here – from grouse to oxtail) I found plenty that I intend to try out for myself: ‘Lemon Risotto’, ‘Hot Buttered Crab’, ‘Trifle’, ‘Shrimp Broth’ etc.

Tom's concept of a 'recipe' is very broad, so you'll find everything here from simple 'Baked Eggs' (a great empty cupboard recipe he got from his mother) and 'A Really Good Fish Recipe' or a more complicated 'Haddock Parker Bowls', to recipes for a 'Hot Toddy' to ease colds and a 'Bloody Mary' for those who prefer a liquid diet.I was particularly interested in Tom's commentary on the debate about the origin of 'Sticky Toffee Pudding', because coming from Cumbria I had only ever heard the Ulswater version of the story. A chapter on Comfort food is packed with family favourites such as My mum's roast chicken and fish goujons with pea purée. Tireless in pursuit of a good dinner, Tom Parker Bowles has eaten some of the best food in the world - and then recreated his favourite dishes in his own kitchen. However, if cooking is new to you, you'll find lots of basic recipes for things like roast chicken and cauliflower cheese.

Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook).To access your ebook(s) after purchasing, you can download the free Glose app or read instantly on your browser by logging into Glose. The Brigadier, 2003-2004, Lucian Freud's monumental portrait of his father (he is the son of Camilla Parker Bowles, the Duchess of Cornwall, and Andrew Parker Bowles) is one of the highlights of the Modern's Freud exhibition.

Interspersed throughout the book are his own family stories behind many of the dishes, along with handwritten notes taken from his personal notebooks, providing an intimate backdrop to each of the recipes (not to mention a soft peek into life within the Parker Bowles home). This is a great recipe book, but pretty far from traditional in terms of its content and layout, with chapter titles like 'Comfort Food' and 'Slow and Low'. Tom's strange ideas concerning saturated fat - it would have been nice to see more 'low fat' workarounds in some of these recipes. In a handsome new cookbook Tom Parker Bowles celebrates the meatier (as well as meat-free) side of eating. How difficult it is the navigate these recipes (the reference section at the back saved me, or I'd have plugged this thing so full of bookmarks it would have looked like a revision guide).To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.
