Written by British food writer and tv show host. Its a mixture of English food with a mediterranean twist due to the background of Ms. Lawson. Good book to read even if you don't end up cooking many of the dishes as Ms. Lawson gives her philosophy on cooking. If you have seen her show, you will recognize the recipes.
