Book Review: Favourite Boating Recipes compiled by Cas Best


Best, C. Favourite Boating Recipes Salmon Press ISBN 978 0 906 198 99 5

Sometimes the best gifts come in small packages, and it was certainly the case with this lively offering from the Salmon Press ‘Favourite […]’ series of booklets.

In this one Cas Best brings together a selection of modern recipes all very cookable in a narrow boat galley kitchen. Some recipes will be familiar, others a little more exotic (anyone for Fried Eels?!?), many have been given waterways related names ‘Lock-Keepers Casserole’ & ‘Turkey Tardebigge’ for example, and the booklet is enlivened by a series of monochrome reproductions of Alan Firth paintings.

It’s a delightful addition to my canal-related bookshelf – thanks for such a thoughtful gift Kev & Lou!
