Very disapointing! First of all, this is an English, as in UK, cookbook. If you're North American, this can get kind of confusing. Ingredients such as 'mixed spice' don't help. Don't look for beer batter onion rings, blooming onions, raised doughnuts, oyster fritters, hush puppies, New Orleans-style beignets, or even a decent fried chicken recipe here. This book won't have it. This should have been called the 'fish and chips' book!
