5.0 out of 5 stars Everybody should have this book! 11 Jun 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is just full of delicious recipes, that are wonderfully approachable.
I wanted a book that contained recipes that required a bit of effort, but not an amount of effort that takes over your entire day. My partner is the cook in our home and we have got a wall full of cook books, which are generally used at the weekends, and for when we are entertaining.... but this book will get used more regularly than that, and by me - a very average cook.
The recipes are so different to any other book, it isn't a health or diet book - but the recipes are healthy and wholesome. It is feel good food that isn't loaded with butter and cream and overly rich undulgances.
You can judge this book by it's cover. The recipes are indeed fresh, happy, and tasty.... and you will be as excited as the chef herself is on the cover when you've made a dish from it yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Up there with the very best of them 17 Jun 2013
An amazing and easy to get to grips with recipe book. Obviously the author has more than a passion for food - good food without the bull. The essence of fresh ingredients and refreshing and delightful recipes make this a must have for any cook -whether professional or a beginner, just so out of the ordinary instead of the mundane recipe books that are out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars great chef 13 May 2013
Having had the pleasure of working with chef Jane Coxwell, I am very excited to receive her first book. Giving the book a five star rating without having seen it first is something I am completely comfortable doing, because I know what Janes food is all about and I know the recipes will all be full of her passion and spirit. I know, i will be using this book as a go to when I need help in the kitchen, and it will feel like she is there with me. Very excited.

5.0 out of 5 stars New favorite!! 14 May 2013
By Nicole S. - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I've never written a review before, but I had to for this book--it is hands down my new favorite. Everything I've tried is straightforward, but super, super flavorful. I'd actually never had such bold, flavorful food outside of a restaurant (I don't think I'll ever cook for friends from a different book again...).

I love the photos because they're really beautiful and happy (which helps at the end of a long day!), but also anything that sounds like it could be complicated has step-by-step photos, which shows that it really isn't hard at all. A lot of them are great for entertaining, but there are definitely easy weeknight recipes too, and some great breakfast dishes, which I am always having a hard time finding.
The recipes have interesting and different flavors, but none of the ingredients are hard to find, and a lot of them are the same (herbs etc.) which definitely helps with shopping. There are so many different influences that I can always find something I'm in the mood for. Every time I make a new recipe, it's my new favorite.

I really can't say enough good things.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jane food makes life taste better! 17 May 2013
By allegrak - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I've had the fortune of tasting almost everything in this book that Jane, herself, prepared. Her food is AMAZING! It has completely changed the way that I think about flavors and the way that I cook. Her recipes are so simple, yet so very flavorful. While discussing the amount of herbs that one should use in a single dish, Jane pretty much told me to throw in everything but the kitchen sink. I've been doing just that, and, you know what? She's right. "Over-herbing" is the best thing ever! She also leaves a lot of room for variations in her recipes. They, like Jane, are very organic and lively in nature. I can't wait for the rest of the world to experience the pleasure of Jane food.

My three favorite recipes (that have been proven crowd pleasers when cooking for my family and friends) are the 1) Pomegranate, nut, & green herb quinoa, 2) Pearl barley with baby spinach corn, & shiitake mushrooms, and 3) Vanilla bean berries mixed with Warm quinoa breakfast porridge. I'd also like to note that while eating her food for a week straight, my boyfriend noticed that I'd slimmed down. Healthy and tasty, it's no wonder that DVF wants to eat Jane's food on a daily basis! A great gift, I bought copies for everyone in my family. They've tasted my versions of her recipes and, across the board, they've loved it. I can't recommend this book enough!

5.0 out of 5 stars My new favorite cookbook crush 30 Aug 2013
By Jenn Tavoletti - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I've had Fresh Happy Tasty for almost two weeks and I really can't say enough about it. If you are looking for delicious, fresh meals for your family then you will like this book. Some of what I've made so far are the fish tacos, poached chicken, multi-seed granola, avocado, arugula & spinach salad, blackened tomato soup (twice!), and green bean tomato & potato salad. All have been fast and easy to prepare and are exactly as the title describes...fresh, happy, and very tasty! I have since purchased 3 additional books for my friends. We are constantly texting back and forth "did you try...?" I will be purchasing more for Christmas presents. I've never written a review before but needed to one for this book (...hoping it will help encourage a second cookbook, please~please~please Jane!) Everything about this book is so beautiful and well done. Thank you Chef Coxwell!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational for professional Chefs & home cooks 21 May 2013
By ChefFinn - Published on
This is one of those books that, when you open it and begin reading, you can't help but to continue. When I recieved my copy, I read it front-to-back. I caught myself smiling almost the entire time. Her story and adventerous lifestyle is something that any professional Chef can relate to. The other reviews describe her food best: simple, flavorful, yet bold. One of the things I enjoy most about this book is that it is also instructional--so it is a wonderful gift for a home cook. This is much more than a "cookbook." This book is inspirational, educational, and entertaining. Well done, Chef Coxwell!

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 29 Jan 2014
By Luis Gomez - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The pictures in this book are beautiful, and add well to the over all book. I bought this book a few months back, some recipes are so earthy and savory. Not all the recipes are easy or time efficient, especially some of the breakfast recipes seemed unnecessarily taxing. I am ok with making dinners that require a lot of prep work, and step following. But, I am an avid believer that breakfast should be easy and delicious - I just woke up, the sun is rising, coffee brewing, I am still half-asleep, so what I don't want is cilantro lime eggs! The book has other breakfast recipes that are just a bit much.

The tomato soup recipe, hummus, grape and brie cheese salad, cilantro rice, and Israeli couscous recipe are some of my favorites.

Over all this book is such a pleasure to read, and even better to enjoy on the table.
