Cornucopia at Home is a fantastic recipe book! I could not disagree more with the previous reviewer. Yes, it has a personal introduction explaining the origins of Cornucopia in Dublin and the lives of those who started it, but that's as much "waffle" (as the reviewer called it) as you are going to get in this book. The rest is probably one of the best recipe books I've ever seen and used!
For those who love Cornucopia in Dublin, they will find plenty of the yummy dishes that they serve: soups, salads, main courses, deserts... It is a must have for people with food allergies, as recipes come with plenty of advice on what each recipe contains, and how to alter the ingredients to make it suitable for each case.
The recipes are delicious and easy to make. The chickpea casserole, for instance, is ridiculously easy and so delicious you'll be delighted it comes in a recipe for four people. Also, the book is packed with suggestions on how can you create new recipes from that particular one you're reading. So, for every recipe fully explained, maybe there's four alternatives that you can try... which is extra recipes for free! Moreover, it comes with loads of small tips on how to improve your diet or even get your own sprouts!
There's only one thing I'll give the previous reviewer: the bedtime reading. I love flicking its pages before going to bed, looking at those lush pictures. Thinking of how I'm going to delight my guests (or myself!) with a new, lovely veggie meal gives me the best of dreams.
