Good - but not necessarily for students?, 1 July 2008
I am a new student and was bought this book as a gift, although it is a very good recipe book with simple, easy-to-follow instructions and a wonderful cocktail section (!) I wouldnt really suggest it as the best book for students? I say this because of the ingrediants list, it contains things such as 'small handful of fresh parsley, chopped', '1/2 teaspoon tumeric', 'cumin seeds' and 'dried mixed herbs' which in my experience arent normally items found in a students cupboard? My mother makes a lovely shepherds pie without using parsley or oregano (and I didnt even know what passata was!) and in my opinion a simpler ingrediants list would make this recipe much more accessible to students!
