    CREATE YOUR OWN THEFTS I would recommend this anti cookbook to anorexics or patients hooked to a feeding tube, just as I would recommend Jonathan Meades films about places to agoraphobics with a loathing for architecture To them especially, in fact With Meades, the point is not the point If you already hate fine dining, extra virgin olive oil, and people who think they re naughty for needlessly adding wine to things, he will give you even better reasons for hating them.I have not yet made a sing [...]

    Although always entertained by J.M s writing I can t see me rushing off to make any of his recipe suggestions I am not sure how many other cookbooks tell you what to do if you fuck it up or describe an English sausage as slurry in a condom I also rather like Homemade begs the question Whose home Have you ever actually seen people s homes Why should biscuits made at home be better than those baked in a factory, a factory that specialises in biscuits I could just hear his voice in my head as I was [...]

    I can t help but think that only the most hopelessly big Meades fans would enjoy this book and thus I did A pleasant read through and through, with lots of interesting ponderings on the nature of originality and plagiarism Some of the recipes really are bizarre, and one gets a taste for his taste from reading this lots of rich food garlic, offal, cream, etc He implores you to eat what satisfies you, and as such this serves as a blueprint for creating your own culinary cannon of stolen ideas An e [...]
