Small Victories is a chatty primer for the hesitant or unconfident cook but gives as much pleasure to those with years of kitchen experience. Rich in ideas, and far from basic in its span of recipes, this is a book that earns a place on any shelf.
There were many recipes I was on the verge of choosing for you - Cauliflower with Anchovy Breadcrumbs; Bread, Sausage and Apple Hash; Radicchio Slaw with Warm Bacon Dressing - but, given the season, it just had to be this Berry and Buttermilk Cobbler.
