"the one cook book you really need this autumn is this practical work from the ever-inventive Thomson" – Independent
"One of my tests of how much I am excited by a new cookbook is how many recipes I feel driven to mark with a Post-It note. With Home Cookery Year I suddenly realised I was Post-It noting nearly every page." – Bee Wilson
