Some selected reviews for Five Fat Hens

‘Halket delivers a delightfully idiosyncratic month-by-month account of what goes on in the henhouse … the writing style is easy-going and illuminating: anyone who has ever fancied keeping an egg-layer or two will be encouraged to take action – and the recipes are gorgeous.’ The Oldie

‘Tim is a writer and is creatively seductive in engaging the reader to try his ideas. This book would make a good present for both a newcomer to cooking as well as the more professional cook.’ Matthew’s Table

‘Novice chicken-fanciers as well as seasoned poultry-keepers will find much to entertain and instruct in Tim Halket’s Five Fat Hens.’ Elisabeth Luard, The Scotsman

‘Chatty and inspiring … if this doesn’t persuade you to get building a coop for your own brood, nothing will!’ Great British Food
