A reissue of Tom Norrington-Davies's much-loved classic on the best of British cooking that we grew up with.
Just Like Mother Used to Make is a celebration of home cooking. It takes you on a culinary tour of good old-fashioned food, from nursery staples like chocolate biscuit cake and macaroni cheese to family classics such as fish pie, corned beef hash, Lancashire hot pot and sticky toffee pudding. Many of the recipes are beautifully simple. All of them are guaranteed to help you rediscover the pleasures of comfort food - food that simply makes you feel better.
Tom Norrington-Davies is a cook and writer. He ran the kitchen at the pioneering food pub The Eagle between 1998 and 2003 and during this time also contributed to The Eagle Cookbook.
