'This is a comprehensive guide to the delights of `country cooking' in all its forms, from the simple pleasures of baking bread and cakes, to curling, dairy-making, bottling, potting and preserving.' * Great British Food * 'Clear recipes and very good instructions' * Fork Magazine * 'Contains some lovely recipes' * Vegetarian Living * 'This cookbook manages to dip into your imagination and offer all the marvels you might expect to come out of a traditional country kitchen.' * Caterer & Hotelkeeper * `If you want to get back to basics and fill the larder then Alison Walker's The Essential Cook's Kitchen, another winner from Jacqui Small, should fit the bill, easy to follow, it takes you through skills that were once second nature. You don't have to have a farm or the kitchen to go with it, the recipes are scaled for the modern cook - and I love the homely illustrations too.' * The Bookseller * 'This inspiring book will take you step by step through the simple pleasures of making artisan breads and farmhouse- style cheeses to preserving the autumn harvest fro year-round enjoyment and the simple, satisfying arts of curing, smoking and salting meats.' * Country Living *
