This is such a fabulous book — I might need it. This is good food. This is good writing. Slow, seasonal, and — most of all — sustainable. Poetic and just. Nice things in a cookbook.

Faults? It's too compendious. Relatedly, it's not a good library book; I'd need to own it to truly have access to the preponderance of its wonderful offerings. That, ridiculously, makes me grumpy.

Useful section identifying fish available in the UK.

Not the best of Hugh's books by far.
