Culinaria Greece (Culinaria)
Culinaria Greece (Culinaria)
by Marianthi Milona
Edition: Flexibound
Price: £14.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Coffee table book, not cookbook, 12 Jun. 2010
This book is a beautiful coffee table book for those interested in the history and food of Greece. All the recipes I tried were a bit lackluster and had some vagueness with cooking times, ect. that would not happen in a book that was exclusively a cookbook. The end result was just missing something that made eating experiences in Crete and elsewhere in Greece so memorable. It's gorgeous so I'm retiring it to the coffee table and looking for another book whose strength is the recipes, not the pictures and detailed history (which is quite interesting, but not essential for cooking).

3.0 out of 5 stars Not great for PC, 11 April 2010
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
It does not translate well to PC and the controls are difficult and hard to get used to. It's fun but would be better on a gaming console instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, 11 April 2010
This review is from: Pan's Labyrinth [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
This movie is truly a work of art - in the storytelling, visuals, emotions, everything. It is not one of those movies that is beautiful but distant and cold without the storyline to match, it has a moving story and all the eye candy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Animated fun, 11 April 2010
This review is from: Shrek [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
Funny characters, ridiculous situations and a great take on all the silly fairytale stuff in an entertaining way. The best of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars I laugh every time, 11 April 2010
This series never fails to make me laugh no matter how many times I watch it. It is too bad there are only two seasons, but at the same time, every episode is perfect. John Cleese is at his best.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best, 11 April 2010
This review is from: Amadeus [DVD] [1984] (DVD)
One of the best movies about music and a musical genius. A great performance by Tom Huth as Mozart and an amazing soundtrack. The story is inspiring and sad all at once.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A must-have for any Peter Sellers collection. One of the best of the Pink Panthers. The scenes with Cato are hilarious.
