5.0 out of 5 stars A fresh, exciting, and modern book 3 Oct 2014
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Now don't let the title of this book confuse you as it is not all about recipes with cinnamon (which I must admit promtped my inital excitement), it just happens to be the name of Izy Hossack's blog that subsequently prompted a book release. I for one and am very glad that this happened, even though I had never heard of Izy before, as this book is modern, chique, and full of delicious recipes. Unlike a lot of cook books, I want to eat things off pretty much every page.

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 turn, 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 or 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 more 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.

Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Author Izy Hossack is a young food enthusiast and blogger who has created a really fun and vibrant cookbook with lots of quick and easy to prepare recipes. I do agree with other reviewers that the font size is quite small – that may be fine for people of Izy’s age, but personally I had to use my reading glasses and I prefer to cook without them. That aside, this is nicely laid out with lots of attractive photographs and is fun to read as well as cook with. The book is split into sections – Breakfast and Brunch, Sides, Mains, Sweet Snacks, Desserts and Staples and ‘How-To’s’. The staples are not of the simple how to create real basic dishes for people who have never attempted cooking before (such as Delia’s ‘How to Cook’) but a list of Izy’s staples, such as pastry (with detailed instructions on how to prepare a cake tin), pesto and almond butter.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good start for young cook 10 Oct 2014
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
What were you doing when you were 18 years old? Maybe you, like me, were trying to balance the perils of A Level exams and UCAS application forms with the important stuff like finding the best student nightclubs with the cheapest deals on boozy treats and trying to look cool at all times - and failing miserably.

Not Izy Hossack. At 18 years old she has published this cookbook with the respected publishing house Hardie Grant, collecting various recipes and ideas she has created for her well followed and reportedly very popular food blog - which she has run since she was 15. To describe her as a precocious talent and early starter would be accurate and possibly a disservice. The existence of this cookbook is testament to a great love of cookery and commendable work ethic. I applaud her for this but the cookbook has to stand on its own merits.

The three stars here reflect that this is a decent cookbook indeed. Miss Hossack is a likeable, enthusiastic writer. She does sound like an excitable teenager at times but then that is as it should be. A young food writer who came across like Rick Stein (for example) would be strange! She has obsessions with Cinnamon and Pesto, urges people who hate chickpeas to try her chickpea recipes and prepare to be converted and appears to have one heck of a sweet tooth.

Sweet treats loom large here, cookies, pancakes, Tortes, Brownies, Cakes and a host of other unctuous and sugary eats feature heavily. In fact, if you are more interested in Savoury goodies, then I would suggest looking elsewhere. These recipes are decent if perhaps a little pedestrian - there is little here that I have not seen before - and look to be easy to follow throughout.
