Library Journal

Hopkinson is one of England's most respected food writers, and his first book, Roast Chicken and Other Stories, became an immediate best seller when it was finally published in the United States last year. This is the Americanized version of his second book, originally published in 2001. Like the first, it includes essays on 40 or so favorite ingredients, from Butter and Dripping to Raspberries to Truffles, along with three recipes for each one. Hopkinson is a man of strong opinions, but he writes with humor and style, and the essays are a pleasure to read. The inviting recipes include both comfort food and more sophisticated creations, such as Oysters with Leeks and Curry Spices, Bitter Chocolate Ice Cream, and a "blissfully rich and savory" Roquefort Tart. Highly recommended.
