fads rise and fall

" (Matthew Norman Guardian)

"Occasionally you come across a truly original chef who can revolutionise your cooking. Anna Hansen is one of these and her first cookbook is a revelation" (BBC Good Food)

"This food is so delicious ... sisters are doing it for themselves, which can only be extremely good news" (Fay Maschler Evening Standard)

"buy, cook, eat, grin" (Observer Magazine)

"If you're looking to impress your friends with your culinary expertise this is the book to have" (The Independent)

I spotted this pretty book in a local bookstore, did not buy it then, but one of the recipes stuck in my mind and I just had to buy it. I was initially slightly wary of revisiting 'fusion' cooking - memories of needing to buy too many expensive ingredients to make one dish and pretentious restaurants that under-delivered. But if anyone can pull off fusion cooking it's antipodeans - people like Peter Gordon - because their worlds have multicultural influences. New zealander Anna Hansen's recipes prove that she really understands flavours, textures and the technical aspects of how to recreate superb food. Her recipes have taken me on a flavour journey - as an experimental home cook I think it helped to have some cooking experience before tackling some of the recipes - but some would be fun for children to make - the cakes/cookies for example.

I've found some of the quantities of pastes and relishes are generous - enough for repeating the recipes several times. Which means I've made the wonderful pandan leaf and duck curry and the sugar-cured prawn omelette several times and I'm perfecting my recreations each time. I've tried a fair number of the recipes in the book so far all with great results and glowing feedback from family and friends. Matcha tea scones worked brilliantly, even people who dont like sweet potatoes like them when cooked with fenugreek, thr ginger crunch was lovely but too sweet for me although others devoured it, cod with chorizo and clams is great, chocolate macadamia and cardamom cookies looked very professional with crackly tops with great taste and texture. My husband demands the prawn omelette now every week.

I was given this for Christmas and it is a beautiful book full of tempting and unusual recipes. I may be unlucky but the first two I have tried seem to have some problems with quantities. The quinoa lavash (and I make bread including lavash regularly) doesn't specify whether the weight is before or after cooking and it ends up with a lose batter which took at least three times as long to cook as the recipe said although the flavour was excellent. I have just also made the chorizo quails scotch eggs and the quantity of - delicious - sausage meat barely covered 16 eggs rather than the 24 specified. So I do recommend this but have been irritated by lack of user friendliness and accuracy so far.

I really wanted to like this book. It has beautiful presentation and I love the concept. It's definitely a book for the serious 'foodie'; I guess that for most of us, the book doesn't contain the kinds of dishes we'll be cooking every day! Although there's a helpful list of suppliers in the back, I'm sure that most of us would find difficulty in obtaining at least one ingredient in each recipe which is a shame. I love the whole concept of the book, and indeed The Modern Pantry itself. For me, it's just a bit too 'way out' for the home cook.

Everything was laid out with love and enthusiasm in a clear and functional way and has a very good list hard to get spices

I have no doubt that this is a great cookbook but as I am a beginning cook I just feel it is not yet for me. The recipes seem to lack family appeal but if you are avant garde with you menus then you will love this book.
