Carina Cooper is a food journalist who writes for the Evening Standard newspaper and Harpers Bazaar UK.From Publishers Weekly:
While food writer Cooper (The Notting Hill Cookbook) has found an audience in her native UK, her appeal doesn't quite translate in this collection of ostensibly easy-to-prepare meals. A roundup of 150 recipes meant for "busy people who want to eat well," most of these dishes will only serve up additional stress, particularly regarding Cooper's reliance on arcane (at least for the U.S.) ingredients, most of which are central: one can't make Baked Passion Fruit Crunch without fresh passion fruit; Summer Pudding requires white, black and red currants ("removed from stalks"); and even a side of roasted potatoes calls for goose fat ("most butchers should supply you... or you can find it in larger supermarkets"). Significant sourcing problems aside, few of her dishes will disappoint: her roast duck, Field Mushrooms with Thyme on Fried Bread, and goat cheese "baby tarts" are straightforward and sure to satisfy, as will most others. Though seasoned cooks may pick up a trick or two, the book's odd focus and ingredient list (undyed smoked haddock, Toulouse sausage, Spanish quince paste, Calasparra rice) will make a frustrating experience for most.
