Ah, James Martin. Lovely James Martin. Based on his popular television series of the same name, this latest Home Comforts cookbook runs the gamut from quick dinners and nostalgic treats (‘instant comforts’ and ‘childhood comforts’ respectively) to dinner party dishes (‘posh comforts’) and stunning desserts (‘sweet comforts’). The latter, of course, is a particular highlight, with Dark and white chocolate cherry brownies, Peanut butter caramel Billionaire’s shortbread and a perfectly swirled Sticky toffee roulade that made me feel quite faint. Fans of James Martin will love this book, and those who haven’t heard of him are likely to be converted – particularly when they catch a glimpse of his ‘posh’ fish pie with lobster, oysters and Champagne.
