I know, it’s starting to look like a branch of Waterstones in here, but honestly – you wait ages for a book full of decent, honest, but interesting grub and then two come along at once. And I think you’ll really like this. James Ramsden [like Lucas Hollweg] has a relaxed attitude to food and wants you to “…unwind, play some music, have a drink, and get stuck into some cooking.” You’ll get no arguments from me there! I like too the idea of including hash-tags for each recipe in the book so that you can comment and follow an evolving conversation on Twitter. Might well be stealing that idea soon.
Amongst other things James also has a great blog, and whilst we have both written for lovefood.com before now, he has recently become the site’s resident restaurant reviewer, and is bringing a very refreshing take to the business of deciding where to eat. One to watch, and no mistake.
