Reviews of The Cook Book

  • ‘This book, with its lovely colour illustrations taken from old Fortnum’s direct marketing booklets, is undiluted nostalgic celebration’ Rose Prince

    ‘Some of my earliest food memories are of Fortnum & Mason … So, understandably, the Fortnum’s Cook Book has a strong nostalgic appeal for me, but a cookery book cannot survive on sentimentality alone, and I have insulted the book’s elegance already, besmirching it with hideously garish post-it notes’ Nigella Lawson

    ‘A beautiful new cookbook’ Clerkenwell Boy

    ‘It’s a beauty!’ Gizzi Erskine

    ‘(A) luxurious banquet offered in this lovely book. It is the perfect Christmas present for 2016’ Bread and Oysters

    ‘At last, an English cookbook of which to be proud … Tom Parker Bowles is a breezy writer with no pretensions, which makes this a most enjoyable read. An excellent present for a chap’ Country Life
