James Barber is the greatest, and is very much missed. His recipes are short, simple and direct, with lots of suggestions for substitutions in case you are missing any ingredients. And everything tastes wonderful! The Peasant's Alphabet is our favourite family cookbook, a slim volume with a huge range of interesting recipes: main dishes (both vegetarian and not), international dishes, original Barber dishes, salads, appetizers and deserts. Barber has woven personal stories into the text too, which make the cookbook a good read while the ratatouille simmers or the cake bakes.

A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
J is for joyful - plain, simple joy being the most important ingredient in any kitchen. Sing a bit, play music, let your friends watch, try with your arm around your beloved.
James Barber takes us on a whimsical culinary adventure through the alphabet and along the way, he teaches us that we need never be a afraid or cooking again. Each and every single recipe is dead easy and James guarantees blissful smiles on all faces at breakfast, lunch, or dinner. This cookbook that can get messy on your kitchen counter, be kept on your bedside table when you need a little comfort or tucked away in a briefcase for boring bus rides.
