Reviews of The Cook Book: Fortnum & Mason
- ‘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
