Math Book, The (Sterling Milestones)
Math Book, The (Sterling Milestones)

2.0 out of 5 stars Where is the math?, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is more about historical events around math rather than a book of math itself. A very shallow look into mathematics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice little book, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this by the recommendation of a chef. Mainly because it is not another cookbook with photographs, but with illustrations by Passard himself (if I got it right). I'll admit that they could be better but just one star reduction.

The recipes look very interesting and I've found a few good combinations although I have not made the dishes as they are but used the ideas in my own creations. But I will make some of them by the letter later on.

5.0 out of 5 stars I still don't get it ;-), 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although I cannot concentrate in all the details this book has to offer it has been fun to read. Now just in the half way and looking forwad reading the rest of the book.


Something's Not Quite Right
Something's Not Quite Right
by Guy Billout
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Quite, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book presents Billout's style of illustration, which I like, very well but compared to his other works this just misses something. Anyway, must have for Billout fans like me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Had to have it, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very well done reproduction of an exceptional printing effort. I also like that the history section is not included in the book but is a separate booklet in the box.


Heston Blumenthal at Home
Heston Blumenthal at Home
by Heston Blumenthal
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 15.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Heston at his best, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All things very well explained. Now I finally have recipe (with measurements) of bacon and egg ice cream. Although the recipes are simplified versions of Fat Duck dishes they still require a lot of time. Anyway, please don't cut the corners and make everything just as Heston says, it is worth the effort.

The Frog Who Wanted to See the Sea
The Frog Who Wanted to See the Sea
by Guy Billout
Edition: Hardcover

2.0 out of 5 stars The story is OK, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been a Guy Billout fan for ages but this book was a big disappointment. He is not known for bright colors but the scale is somewhat harsh. The typography is hideous and just barely readable.

I'll probably dump ths one to a secondhand bookstore and keep admiring his other illustrations.

4.0 out of 5 stars Limoncello, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book just for limoncello recipe (works really well) but there is other good ones too. A very good section of foraging for example.

But, as a graphic designer I do not like it at all. The glossy thin paper is just hideous and the three column layout with unjustified body text is just bad. There is a few good photographs but many are unprofessional. But I'm willing to trade bad design for good contents.

WMF Pressure Cooker Sealing Ring (gasket), 22 cm
WMF Pressure Cooker Sealing Ring (gasket), 22 cm
Price: 14.40

5.0 out of 5 stars A ring, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This ring will not rule them all but if it works like the one I bought with the pressure cooker I'm happy. I'm happier still if I do not have to even replace it. Bought it just in case.
