I didn't like this as much as Real Fast Food. Nigel said he wrote it because he'd got letters saying they felt he'd temped them back to the kitchen but deserted them when it came to desserts (pun intended)... Well I don't really feel much better after reading this! It felt to me like there was a lot of filling, mostly variations on (1) fruit with cream, (2) fruit with cheese, (3) fruit with alcohol and (4) fruit salad. Dotted within this are occasional useful basic recipes like fool, crumble, br ...more

This is my favourite pudding book of all. He goes by the seasons but not in a dour or precious way. He writes really beautifully and in my version there are lovely pencil drawings. Because I think really all puddings should be lazy and unworked, this is the book for me.

Lots of good things I would call snacks, very few real desserts.

fabulous for quick ideas; i love his lists of food combinations and simple dishes to throw together. Nothing complicated, all good.

I use the pancake recipe (with 2 eggs, not 3) for breakfast every weekend.

Once I read Real Fast Food I had to read the companion book. It focuses on fruits in season and makes you want to run out and try everything. A great approachable cookbook.
Some good quick recipes mouth wateringly good, especially great to rustle up in a few minutes. The author also tempts us with some unusual combinations.

I was disappointed in this book because it's mostly about fruit (I don't like fruit). I don't use it as much as I thought I would.
