Wow did I luck out!! Found this for $6 at a local discount store. This is a delightful family cook book. Full of all kinds of kitchen projects as well as the hows and whys of kitchen science. The organization of the book is smart. I will be sure to have this one for years to come. We will certainly be making more butter, homemade sausage, and jellies. ( )

This has been a fantastic book to read and cook from with our kids. My son is obsessed with cooking everything from scratch, thanks to this book. ( )

Quite possibly the best and most versatile cookbook EVER, for all ages - don't be fooled into thinking it's mostly for kids - you'll love it as much or more than they do. Beautiful photos, realistic dish appearances, superb explanations, fun add-on projects to enhance enjoyment and learning. Great quality, highly recommended. ( )

'Fizz Carr and I share the view that there are no really good cookbooks for the whole family to use together. It is our immodest intention to write a classic of this genre' Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's well-loved RIVER COTTAGE books have become a phenomenon, inspiring hundreds of thousands of people all over Britain to cook and enjoy good food. His new book THE RIVER COTTAGE FAMILY COOK BOOK, co-written with Fizz Carr, brings the River Cottage philosophy to the whole family. It will give pleasure to everyone: toddlers and grandparents, families discovering the fun of cooking together, and everyone who enjoys simple home-cooked food. From how to make butter from a jar of cream to how to make your own sausages, THE RIVER COTTAGE FAMILY COOKBOOK will inspire everyone with the magic and fun of cooking. 'A great way to learn the basics without feeling patronised ...You come away from the experience not just with a tasty supper but with a better knowledge of food ...comfortingly old-fashioned ...will almost certainly go on my shelf of "genuinely useful cook-books", cross-referenced with my folder of "ways to entertain the kids at weekends"' Time Out
