I had somehow never heard of this book even though I've come to understand it's pretty famous Roast Chicken is a very personal cookbook annotated with both practical cooking advice and great stories which is my favorite kind of cookbook Hopkinson has a great love of food It's obvious when you find yourself reading the kidney section the book is organized by ingredient and thinking that they don't sound badThe book doesn't have a common thread other than it's the author's musings on food but if you had to assign one to it it's to respect your ingredients Everything Hopkinson writes is to further whatever it is he's preparing It's not about making food do what you want it to do; it's about helping your ingredients reach their full potentialI put down some cookbooks and feel like the writer must think I'm an idiot or else I feel guilty I don't have five hours a day to prepare meals Roast Chicken got me very excited about food I'm not sure how many of these recipes I'll make but the techniue and ideas behind the recipes will definitely come in handy

Simon Hopkinson Ô 9 SUMMARY

Elegant recipes In this richly satisfying culinary narrative Hopkinson shares his uniue philosophy on the limitless possibilities of cooking With its friendly tone backed by the author's impeccable expertise this cookbook can help anyone from the novice cook to the experienced chef prepare delicious cuisine and enjoy every minute of it Irresistible recipes in this book include. I love books about food So I was very excited to read this after a glowing article in the NYT Magazine food column 12207 It had knocked Harry Potter off the top of the UK bestsellers list and was described by Waitrose a British food magazine as the most useful cookbook of all time WowSoI was a little perplexed when this wonder book turned out to be very slight lots of white space and with no illustrations to speak of Divided into 40 alphabetical chapters each highlights a single ingredient That could be fine but his choices BRAINS no I'm not kidding kidneys sweetbreads these are the worst by far but there's also an entire chapter devoted to smoked haddock This is going to set the British culinary reputation back about 50 years The book can at times be fun to read he begins each chapter with a short essay about each ingredient and his recipes have a conversational tone that feels like he's right there in your kitchen helping you to cook But the recipes are mostly classics that you have elsewhere As for me I think I'll continue to invite Ina and Julia in to help me when I cook

Roast Chicken and Other StoriesGood cooking depends on two things common sense and good taste In England no food writer's star shines brighter than Simon Hopkinson's His breakthrough Roast Chicken and Other Stories was voted the most useful cookbook ever by a panel of chefs food writers and consumers At last American cooks can enjoy endearing stories from the highly acclaimed food writer and his simple yet. The most useful cookbook of all time perhaps if you have brains lying around on the shelf or mutton I cannot speak for the recipes in the book since I did not cook any but then none looked particularly appealing It is filled with sporadic cutting criticisms of select foods cooking styles and eating styles in a faux matter of fact tone that has become an ample substitute for food acumen I don't doubt his acumen really but I don't care to follow along either
