However, there weren't as many recipes as I was hoping, and it read more like a storybook with some recipes in it. I got it as a present for my brother, who has read every Jacques book and actually enjoys cooking. Each of my children have favorites from this book for their birthdays. Brian Jacques pronounced 'jakes' was born in Liverpool, England on June 15th, 1939. Once the reader is hooked, there is no peace until the final page. Brian's teacher could not, and would not believe that a ten year old could write so well.
Redwall 1986 Mossflower 1988 Mattimeo 1989 Mariel of Redwall 1991 Salamandastron 1992 Martin the Warrior 1993 The Bellmaker 1994 The Outcast of Redwall 1995 The Pearls of Lutra 1996 The Long Patrol 1997 Marlfox 1998 The Legend of Luke 1999 Lord Brocktree 2000 Taggerung 2001 Triss 2002 Loamhedge 2003 Rakkety Tam 2004 High Rhulain 2005 Eulalia! The recipes all sound so yummy! If I had kids, I'm sure they'd love reading Redwall and this would be a super fun way to introduce them into cooking. All of the recipes except one are vegetarian, though very few are vegan due to an extremely generous hand with the butter, cream and cheese in almost every recipe. While you can read this book in one sitting, you'll use it as a reference for decades. I would rate it at at least two and a half stars. I just recently got this cookbook and tried out the stuffed mushrooms and Savory Squirrel Bakes mashed potato and cheese balls for Thanksgiving and they were delicious! I believe this is in part my own fault, because I have become quite the cook and most of these recipes are a tad simpler than I'm used to. All the childhood magic of Redwall is brought to life in this wonderful book. Everyone had to find ways to use wha At the suggestion of my third-born son, we purchased this book.
One should not forget that The Redwall Cookbook is a story, too. The recipes are mostly vegetarian, which I think is appropriate because otherwise at least some of the Redwall animals would end up in the stew. Tons of root vegetables and nuts and grains which is lovely. If only they had the sword of Martin the Warrior, they might have a chance. These are happy days described in the book, days without war and death and dire threats to the peaceful Redwall Abbey.
It brings back many of my favorite Redwall characters, like Matthias and Cornflower, just for a big feast where everyone is exchanging little stories and recipes. The recipes are generally excellent and great for discovering vegetab The Redwall books are all very similar to one another, which is great, because the Redwall formula has so much to love. He grew up in the area around the Liverpool docks. In my book, no pun intended one of the marks of a great author is to make me salivate about the food that the characters are eating! When he found time he read the works of Mario Puzo, Damon Runyon, Richard Condon, Larry McMurty, and P. Recipes include the perennial favorites October Ale, Summer Strawberry Fizz, Shrimp' n' Hotroot Soup, Deeper' n' Ever Turnip' n' Tater' n' Beetroot Pie, Cheese' n' Onion Hogbake, and Afternoon Scones. All the same, these recipes are great base recipes to play with and expand upon.
I returned this cook book without actually reading through the whole thing. Most of his childhood was spent living in a mobile home in Burbank, Washington. Readers will delight anew in the thrilling adventures of young Matthias as he discovers the hero within. I spent most of 5th and 6th grade inhaling all of the Redwall books and still enjoy them now and then as an adult. Irrespective of the fact that the Abbey is a peaceful place, the ruler of the Abbey, Abbott rules that war is inevitable and eventually decides to trust Mathias with the defense of the woodland.
His only complaint was that they always made him hungry. My son read all the Redwall books which he loved! Great little cookbook that I bought for my children when they were young and reading all the the Brian Jacques books. Both story and recipes were very good, in my opinion. The only difficulty I found is that a lot of the recipes contain cheese, which some picky eaters in my family won't eat. Now I can see what Basil Stagg Hare was raving about when he talked about how great it is! If I had kids, I'm sure they'd love reading Redwall and this would be a super fun way to introduce them into cooking. From the very first page, the author, Brian Jacques throws the reader into action. It's high time to experience this magical land on a tastebud level! Illustrations were lovely; very sweet! The teacher could not, and would not, believe that a ten year old could write that well.
I'm looking forward to Mole's Favourite Deper 'N'Ever Turnip 'n' Tater 'n' Beetroot Pie! One of the hardest and best things about Brian Jacques 'Redwall' series is surviving through the lavish descriptions of delicious feasts. I was fourteen at the time when Mr. But the legendary weapon has long been forgotten-except, that is, by the bumbling young apprentice Matthias, who becomes the unlikeliest of heroes. Even though I haven't picked up a Redwall book in years, this charming addition with its quaint little stories and gorgeous artwork brought back so many memories. Was some entirely different method used? Do you have the opportunity to do what you do best every day? Mathias, who is the protagonist, is such a loveable character as well as several other mice from Abbey.

Handy hint- a vegetable peeler will allow you to remove those annoying strings off the back of the stick very easily- throw the peels into your bucket of veggie scraps in the freezer for when you make stock. I haven't read the original trilogy in a very long time, but some of the other names of characters do sound familiar to the first book as well. The information given is rather accurate and is of nature such that the information must come from Martin the Warrior and may not be the outcome of a creature solving the mystery during its sleep and in the process dreaming about Martin the Warrior. Jacques ties the recipes of each section together with a sweetly told tale of preparations for a seasonal feast, heartily populated with the favorite characters complete with their individual antics and turns of phrase.
However, in the installment, Tribes of the Redwall Mice, both Abbess Germaine and Martin the Warrior have the ability to look into the feature. What nerve of the authors to leave us readers dangling! Endearingly monikered dishes such as Hare's Pawspring Vegetable Soup and Rosey's Jolly Raspberry Jelly Rock Cakes are included, along with Mole's Favourite Deeper 'n' Ever Turnip 'n' Tater 'n' Beetroot Pie. It had some mild spiciness to it, but could have definitely used some butter or jelly or both to enliven it. Highly recommend as a starter for getting kids in the kitchen. But the legendary weapon has long been forgotten-except, that is, by the bumbling young apprentice Matthias, who becomes the unlikeliest of heroes.
It was like meeting a very, very old friend again and discovering that they hadn't changed a jot in the time since you last met. This book is a keepe My children's eating habits have always been vulnerable to the manipulations of their favorite fictional characters. It's going to be a tasty occasion indeed! Great introduction to cooking for the younger set, with not too much sugar. But the blame also resides in the Redwall books themselves. Nonetheless, the inhabitants are not willing to give up the piece of land without a fight. All recipes are relatively simple, but quite delic Redwall books aren't complete without the mouth-watering feasts, so a cookbook companion is quite fitting for the series! The Ghost of Martin the Warrior or another dead hero would often appear in dreams, visions or hallucinations to one of the woodlands creatures. Another beautiful collaboration from author Brian Jacques and illustrator Christopher Denise.
