Editorial Reviews

Alice Joyce
Smith's name and face may be unfamiliar on this side of the Atlantic, but she has entered British households for years via a television program and numerous culinary volumes. Serving as her introduction to Americans, this beautifully produced book is filled with recipes highlighting warm-weather ingredients, such as asparagus, bell peppers, berries, fresh herbs, and crab. Although the fare displays a gourmet touch, instructions are clearly written. And, unlike more esoteric cookbook authors, Smith sometimes simplifies a recipe but still maintains its essential character. Considered by many to be Britain's answer to Martha Stewart, Smith, with her down-to-earth style, is as refreshing as the food presented here.
