4.0 out of 5 stars Yummy, 30 Jun 2011
So far I've only made salsa and the Adobado chicken which was SO soooo yummy in a fajita!! So, i look forward to making more from the book. Not sure why the person who gave this book a 1 star didn't like it, I think its a really well presented and helpful book with heaps of interesting recipes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite, 30 Jun 2011
I fell in love with this book straight away - the look of it, the colours and photographs were fantastic. I have already made the rose petal ice cream (gorgeous), and the rose petal jam (trying to figure out how i'm going to use this, but its lovely!). And will be trying out the Baklava tomorrow. I loved it so much I got her other book Orient Express.

My only reason for not giving it a full 5 stars is that her directions for the cooking are not very clear - for instance with making the custard part of making the icecream - she does not describe clearly what to do, it is very very vague. Apart from that its great - if you are used to cooking then it won't be a problem, but if you are new to it, maybe start with a more idiot proof book first!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for someone who's never worked out, 1 Mar 2011
This was very tough on the legs but at no point does the woman make sure to tell the student to do these movements safely. You could completely wreck your body with this!! I have dance training (not ballet) so i know how to save my back etc, but i was surprised there were no directions on how to safely do these movements.

Other than that - wow, good abs workout too!
