"Delicious!" * The Guardian * "This little gem us full of beautiful illustrations and ideas that will tempt even the most reluctant cook to buy a pot of honey and head for the kitchen." * Sainsbury's Magazine * "A celebration of the art... Mouthwatering. This pocket book packs a punch, and the dishes won't break the bank if you make them at home." * Image Interiors * "A brilliant kitchen tool... The recipes are stunning and offer genuinely inventive ways of using up forgotten jars... There's something for every occasion and time of the day." * Great British Food * "Like the shop there is a distinct identity, but it's unobtrusive - if there is a philosophy it's delivered in a slightly tongue in cheek fashion - this is about the finer things in life and a certain old fashioned traditionalism." * Desperate Reader *
