For me this book is a collection of naughty and nice recipes. Obviously the naughty ones are the things that just taste too darn good, like the red velvet cakes, amaretto torte, boozy mocha layer cake, or the swedish chocolate cake (to name just a few). Yet the nice recipes are what surprisingly excite me more in this book, as the recipes are healthy, fresh, both looking and taste wise, and packed full of flavour. Some of my favourites have to include courgette spaghetti with chilli, corn soup, beef chilli, and cauliflower risotto, although the other untried and tested recipes I'm sure will be equally delicious.
Izy also provides basic dip recipes that again are fresh and cleansing, from standard dips of guacamole and salsa through to a chickpea and pomegranate dip. There are also various cookie, bread, and salad recipes that are sure to excite most tastebuds.
As with any good cookbook you also get the standard 'how to' guide, which shows you everything from how to line tins, and making basic bread, pastry, or ganaches, through to making salted caramel sauces and treacle butters.
I find this book fresh, exciting, and modern. I'm sure it will suffer through many years of use and I am very happy to add it to my on show collection.
Where this book really comes alive is on the sweet and dessert sections. However, saying that, the breakfast and brunch section is also delightful – with delicious Chocolate and Banana French Toast, Cinnamon Rolls and No-Bake Chocolate Granola Cookies, which are fun to make with children. With Halloween coming up, I intend to try the Malted Pumpkin Gingerbread and I really liked the Udon Noodle and Mushroom Soup. I would not suggest this as a first cookbook, but it does have some great recipes, most of which are really quick to prepare. I also liked Izy’s sheer enthusiasm and style of writing. Perhaps next time her publishers can take pity on older readers and just make the book a little easier to read, because she does deserve a wide readership. However, I accept that the book was produced with readers of Izy’s age in mind as presumably they are the ones who follow her blog. Great book with lots of useful ideas and delicious recipes and I am sure I will use it often.
BUT Izy is 18, bubbling over with enthusiasm, loves cooking, loves eating, and just expresses such joie de vivre and desire to SHARE the pleasure that it would take a harder-hearted, surlier cynic than I would ever want to be, NOT to roll over, surrender and say, ah, bless, good on you, and......mm let me into the kitchen and attabake NOW
This would particularly be a fabulous book for other young chefs or would be chefs. She is refreshingly `hey, this is FUN!, this is COOL! This is EASY!' and though at times I squinted at the text (tiny, tiny) and thought there might be an overkill of photos and not QUITE enough recipes, I felt a churl for even thinking this.
As a vegetarian some of the (Not that many) main dishes are of course NOT FOR ME, so we will draw a veil over them, and those that want to see can look at the index on a `look inside'
This is a very helpful book for the utter novice cook, as Izy shows and tells how to make such staples as bread dough, pastry, not to mention how to prepare and line cake tins and roll-out and prepare pastry in a flan tin, and how to make various staples she uses a lot of such as chocolate and hazelnut butter and chocolate ganache.
But how can a fellow chocolate lover NOT surrender to Izy, a serious chocca young lady if ever there was one - Chocolate Chip Amaretto Torte, Swedish chocolate cake, boozy mocha Coconut Layer Cake (sandwiched with that chocolate ganache yum) and the like.Read more ›
