It is impossible not to find something in this book that you would like to eat. From rich Italian risotto and pasta recipes to healthy flavoursome eastern dishes, each recipe appears on its own page with a beautiful colour photograph of the finished dish. There are nearly 200 recipes divided into soups, salads, pasta, rice, wok, curries and "one pots". The recipes I most like are for the wok - since I am in a healthy eating phase at the moment and yearn for flavoursome, yet low-fat eating. Yakiudon - a Japanese dish of thick noodles with ginger, soy sauce, shredded cabbage and peppers, has become a family favourite. Stir fried lamb with mint and chilli was a huge hit at an informal dinner party. I bought this book as a present for a friend and immediately had to buy it for myself.
