Book Description

1 April 2003 Real food
This simple and ancient form of cooking is enjoying a real come-back. Why? Because it perfectly suits the needs of the modern cook: it's healthy, quick and easy; needs no added fats; is hugely versatile; and foods retain the maximum nutritional value. Plus it's great for everyone from singles to families. But don't just think of steamed vegetables or traditional puddings - although all the favourites are here - this book covers the whole range from Thai chicken and Mediterranean seafood dishes, through perfect dumplings, eggs, rice, couscous and grains to light mousses, zabaglione and fruit dishes.

1.0 out of 5 stars Misleading Title 19 Aug 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I ordered this because the title lead me to believe it would be full of recipes for "real" food that ordinary everyday "real" people like me eat.
Perhaps I'm just not adventurous enough but I was surprised to find recipes like:
chickpea couscouss with sweet spiced lamb and raisin sauce.
duck breasts with blueberries and mild blue cheese fondue.
lamb medallions with redcurrant and mint jus and turnip mash.

if you have already mastered the art of steaming and want to branch out a bit then this may well be a book to try. If, like me, you want to get to grips with the basics then I would suggest you give this one a miss.

The book is very good. It contains a variety of recipes, some of which are very different from normal. Th book does a good job of providing guidelines for cooking times and advice on warming and cooking. All in all, the book is worth the cost
