I love the hairy bikers but was a little disappointed with this collection of recipes. I was hoping for more stew type meals. There was quite a variety of ideas, just not necessarily my taste for a lot of them - so it’s all down to personal taste, you may love it 😊
You have to hand it to the Bikers, they give you food that you want to eat. This, actually isn't one of their best books. It's been done much better elsewhere - think Lindsey Bareham (superb), Nigel Slater, and my current favourite John Whaite. But there are still a few must-make meals contained here and to be honest if you're starting out HB are great as they're so easy to follow and the recipies work.
My wife was really looking forward to this book, only to find that only a section of it was "One Pot Wonders". Other sections were desserts and other genres. The One Pot section was excellent but overall rather a let-down for the hype it had been given.
I have the kindle edition so not sure it goes for any print copy, but there is NO INDEX AT ALL! There is a contents page with all the nice chapter headings. To find out if there even is say a lamb stew, I need to trawl through that whole section. While I like ‘reading ‘ cookbooks, this is tedious add no fun at all.
Wasn’t too impressed. I thought they were down to Earth cookers. Some of the ingredients I have never heard of. The only one recipe so far I fancied was the oxtail stew. I thought something sensible until I saw the ingredients, garlic,sweet potatoes, all spice , chilli and red wine. I don’t use any of them. I’m sorry don’t like it.
