I loved my time living in the UK and was really looking forward to recreating a yummy Christmas Roast here in the US as I knew I would be missing it.

*Sigh, this is where the 3 Vs 5 stars comes in. I wish I had bought this cook book in the UK because this one has American ingredients. Example, the best Yorkshire Puddings and Roast Potatoes I have ever had or made were with goose fat. Now I know, that probably isn't the easiest to come by in the US, but surely it's not that hard either. But to say to use vegetable oil for them??! I dare say Jaime has never made a Sunday or Christmas Roast using vegetable oil.

Its a cookbook. So I want to know what ingredients the chef is using to make the food in the recipes and pictures. I can then source those ingredients or I can substitute as I see fit. What I don't want or need is some editing company going through and changing it all to American ingredients.

For that reason, it's a 3 star for me. I probably would've returned it if it hadn't been a gift to me.
