What I thought about the book:

This is the way family cookbooks should be. Nadiya’s includes lovely homey little introductions to each recipe that gives them a real comfort food vibe. I especially love her introduction to the book where she discusses her family life around food and how food is a representation of home.

“Food is such a simple word. A simple four-lettered word that can evoke every human emotion possible.”

The recipes included are very appetising and achievable. In the dessert section, she includes an Éclair Roll and Back-to-Front Baked Cheesecake that are very inventive but not over the top so still within the realms of everyday cooking.

Absolutely fantastic!!

So many helpful tips and essential skills for making delicious well-rounded burgers, condiments and bread buns.

I love how the book is divided into regional flavours such as Northern European, Indian, and Southern American. It gives a really diverse flavour choice to suit pretty much anyone. They are so much more than just burgers!
