Delicious recipes and very easy to make - BRILLIANT COOKBOOK!
on 5 July 2011
This is a brilliant cookbook - all the recipes are really easy to make as they use a maximum of 5 spices each, so you don't have to spend hours shopping beforehand as the chances are that you'll already have most of what you need in the storecupboard and, if you do need something, there are no ingredients that can't be found in your local supermarket. Everything I've made so far - Golden Temple Lamb Curry, Cambodian Coconut and Ginger Aubergine, Mayan Hot Chocolate, Asparagus, Green Bean and Wasabi Salad and Prawn and Lemongrass Rice Noodle Salad - has been absolutely delicious and very simple to make - lots of the recipes can be done in advance so you can relax as your guests arrive, ideally with one of the spicy cocktails that are also found in the book - Lemongrass & Ginger Rum Cocktail is FANTASTIC!
Another great thing about Mighty Spice Cookbook is that the recipes are inspired from all over the world - there are alot of Asian dishes, as you'd expect, but also South American, Mexican, Moroccan and Middle Eastern recipes too...
I cannot recommend this highly enough, especially to those who would like to expand their repertoire to include some exotic, really tasty dishes that will seriously impress your dinner guests!
