Love it. Not every recipe is what I had hoped (alas Deeper 'n' Ever Pie), but all are homey and approachable. The book also follows a cute narrative, and has lovely art. ( )

This is a lovely little book. Especially for young cooks who also love the Redwall series. Or more, shall we say, experienced ones like me who love them and love cookbooks to go with stories. The illustrations are wonderful.

Recipes include vegetable casseroles, soups and such. Eggs are used, and there is a fiery leek/shrimp soup which I will be trying. Also lots of fruit desserts, cobblers, dumps, tarts, trifles, fools, scones and breads. I would say it is heavier on the desserts than on the main courses. There are some recipes for drinks as well. It is geared to young cooks, and there is a little tale throughout (which I thought rather twee). The chapters are based on the seasons of the year, but I'm not sure the ingredients are seasonal. Or at least not my season. All the recipes seem sound, although I haven't made them, I've cooked enough to know a sound recipe when I see it. I was disappointed in the Mossflower cider though. It's just apple cider. ( )

Brian Jacques writes, "in my stories, the food has as much a part of the saga as the battle, the quest, the poems, the riddles, and the songs." This cookbook features the recipes of Redwall, grouped into chapters based on the season of the year. An original, illustrated Redwall tale links the recipes together to encourage reading from cover-to-cover. For those who prefer a more traditional cookbook, an index in the back of the book groups recipes into familiar categories covering drinks, appetizers, soups, main dishes, sides, and desserts.
