Well Fed Network - New Article

Click here to read my latest article for the Well-Fed Network. This time it's posted under the Paper Palate Site and if anyone should know about cookbooks, it's someone who is literally drowning beneath them, i.e. Me (or my tolerant husband!). Actually, the article is about my top five British writers so let me know if you disagree with any of them!

Mmm = top five is pretty tough. I agree about Nigel and Nigella (and Elizabeth David). I also like Jane Grigson, in fact, though she has less narrative. I admit to finding Tamasin slightly upper-class scary (I think it is the hair in her last TV show). Diana Henry writes beautifully - have you read her books? (Roast Figs Sugar Snow/Crazy Water Pickled Lemons in particular). Now I think about it, I don't know who I would include! I will get back to you.

Freya - I just wrote a message but must have clicked something I shouldn't have...will have to re-write. I am glad to have read your article on Paper Palate. Is Slater's "Appetite" soooo different to "The Kitchen Diaries"? I mean, I know that the theses differ, but must I have this one, too? Please enlighten me (and perhaps give me another reason to buy, as my angelheart Eric would say, yet another cookery book).

Hi again, I forgot to say that you're probably right in that people do not pay sufficient attention when reading the bibliography. If I hadn't done so, then I might not have come across Claudia Roden, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, or Beatrice Ojakangas so soon.
