Description - The Good Life by Adrian Richardson

Adrian Richardson's philosophy is simple: things taste better when they're homemade. Baking your own bread, creating fresh cheeses or tomato sauce from scratch, making salami and sausages, cooking chutneys and preserves, mixing your own oils and vinegars, smoking or curing fish and meat, and turning out fresh pasta...in The Good Life Adrian shows you how to do all this, and more. This is back-to-basics living at its best, with delicious family dishes such as Spaghetti Marinara, Barbecued Lamb Koftas or Sticky Pork Ribs, nibbles and drinks for picnics and summer parties, ice creams and sorbets, delicate cakes and warming winter puddings, such as Caramelised Apple or Coffee, Prune and Frangelico.

Book Review: Good Life by Adrian Richardson - Reviewed by (03 Nov 2011)

The title says it all. This is a very approachable cookbook and the images in the book seem so realistic you want to take a bite. At times the pictures of crumbs on the page left me trying in vain to remove them! The layout of the book is appealing and the recipes are suitable for all different skill levels not to mention tastes. If a recipe book could be called a coffee table book then this is it. It is fantastically bound. Inside you will find a whole host of interesting ideas and methods which you may not of tried before and most are as close to 'the farm' as possible with lots of great fresh and natural ingredients which is what I found most appealing. These recipes are ones you want to sit down and share with family and friends. The illustrative pictures make it easy to see how certain things should be done and the Masterclasses inside are invaluable. This book, set out in seasons, makes sourcing ingredients and finding the perfect meal very easy. The inbuilt bookmark is also an asset to this book. I have tried close to a dozen recipes from this so far and find mine turn out relatively the same as the imagery provided and the recipes are super easy to follow. This is one book to gift to those you really love and for its contents they will love you back.

Book Review: Good Life by Adrian Richardson - Reviewed by (17 Sep 2011)

I’ve seen him in his tv show ‘Good Chef, Bad Chef’ and just like his tv show Adrian Richardson’s cookbook ‘The Good Life’ is fantastic. Firstly I love his attention to detail, from the soft cushioned cover to the embossed title and the checked ribbon you can use to find your favourite recipes again and also the fabulous use of colourful imagery throughout the book all help make this cookbook that little bit more exceptional.

On the cover it states ‘A year of cooking and eating with friends’ and the cookbook is formulated with this idea in mind as it is organised into seasons of the year and provides a huge array of amazing recipes to cook for your friends. The contents page is divided into each season Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter and the recipes divided accordingly. Spring includes some very nice salad and seafood recipes, Summer has tasty barbeque and ice cream recipes, Autumn includes some delicious poultry and preserves and Winter includes some amazing meat, pasta, pies and puddings. Also another thing I love are the Master Classes listed under each season with their step by step instruction as they make you feel like a real Master Chef. Overall I thought the cookbook was fantastic and would definitely recommend it as a worthwhile addition to any cookbook collection.
