My kitchen table range is not just a book written by Mary Berry, it is a brand of a number of authors and is linked to a website.
I chose Mary Berry as I find her recipes down to earth, inspiring and achievable.
This is not a repeat recipe book from her previous lists of favourites but 100 recipes that are easy, quick and fun to make for friends and family.
This does not have such a large focus as her previous books on chapters and is quicker to read through and digest.
In this book, I found that there was more of a focus on SWISS ROLLS [Not that I'm complaining] and TRAYBAKES so if that interests you more this is good for those aspects.
Although I did like this book and refer to it occasionally I have found that it does not 'feel' like a Mary Berry book but someone has stolen her and re-branded her.
The format has changed and it feels less personal, the pictures, the format is good but different.
The recipes are filled with helpful tips and tricks and a good guide. In the beginning of the book, the opening chapter will help you convert weights.
I can happily say that the recipes were a treat, everyone is still alive and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to add this to your other cookbooks as there are hidden treats and delights.
This retails at £5.59 and is also available on Kindle as mentioned before, I struggle with recipes on Kindle as they look awkward and don't format well.
