5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous Annie Bell 11 Aug 2009
Format:Paperback
I must be one of Annie Bell's biggest fans... although it took me a while to realise it. For years I've kept a recipe file full of magazine cuttings and, one day, as I was going through them, I noticed half of them had been written by the same person - Annie Bell.
I'm thrilled she's written these "gorgeous" books... it's enabled me to clear out drawers full of magazine cuttings for one thing!
Her writing style is beautiful... she combines the luxurious prose of Nigella ("trifles are a deep sea dive, down through a glassy surface of cream to an underworld of hidden treasures" she says in Gorgeous Desserts) with the clear practicality of Delia. I agree with everyone else who says her recipes are simple but they do fling together imaginative flavour combinations, eliciting great reactions from dinner party guests. And, blessed joy, they pretty much always work. Her chocolate fondants are the most reliable version of that recipe I've ever found while, in this book, the pastry for her pea and feta tart is divine (and I'm not a very good pastry maker).
Like other reviewers, I'm a vegetarian and, although there are some meaty intrusions into this book (it's not, after all, written FOR veggies), it's one of the best recipe-suggestors for non-meat eaters I've ever read.
Get this woman on the telly!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous recipes 6 Jan 2010
By Seafire
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I usually find there are one or two recipes in each book that are really good, most are okay and a couple of them can be quite poor. With Annie Bell's Gorgeous Greens, I keep on finding new and scrumptious recipes to try, and many of them are excellent - a couple so far are outstanding, and have leapt to the top of my 'favourite meals' list. That makes it my most successful recipe book ever. It's also brilliant if you want raw food recipes as she has two chapters on 'big' and 'small' salads (there's no difference as far as I can see, perhaps size of portions?). She also includes a section each for cheeses and potato meals for those who like cooked greens.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute delight............ 3 July 2009
Format:Paperback
Gorgeous greens has to be one of the best cookery books ever written. If you were not a vegetarian when you started, you could well be when you have finished. Who needs meat when you have such a wonderful array of vegetable dishes, simple, tasty and attractive. Everyone I have shown it to has immediately gone out and bought a copy - an absolute delight!!!!!!!!!!!!!
