4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product but inflated price., 10 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent tea infuser. I have bought two recently (same make) from two different marketplace sellers. This was by far the poorer value. For the price of this tea infuser (through Steenbergs) I could buy one through Nothing But Tea INCLUDING postage. Steenbergs then charged me nearly four pounds in postage (as apposed to the £1 postage with Nothing but Tea). Nothing but Tea also included free tea samples in my package - altogether a better buy.
Sorry Steenbergs. This is an excellent product, but you are not good value!!!

This review is from: Tea Infuser (Kitchen & Home)
This is an excellent product. I have bought two now but from different sellers. My tea infuser (same make) from nothing but tea was almost half the price by the time I paid for postage than the one I bought through Steenbergs. Also Nothing but Tea even gave me a couple of free tea samples, which I was very impressed by on such a small order. Arrived promptly in perfect condition.

5.0 out of 5 stars wild fermentation, 7 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an extremely interesting book, but not by Sally Fallon as it states here, (she wrote the forward only). It's written by Sandor Ellix Katz a self confessed 'fermentation fetishist'.

The recipe section covers every form of fermented food you can think of, from Fruit Kimchi to Amazake to Kefir. It is a extremely enjoyable book to read especially if you are (like the author), passionate about fermentation. Everything from health benefits to history of fermentation & cultural aspects are covered.

Highly recommended!!

5.0 out of 5 stars 'a glorious and magical feast for the senses', 22 July 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
'a glorious and magical feast for the senses' (as Claudia Roden says about this book..) & I really can't say more ~ This is a wonderful book full of inspiration, a myriad feast for the senses, drawing from the rich cultures & flavours of the Mediteranian & Middle East. Just reading through & looking at this book is an evocative experience, which has a much to do with place & culture/experience as it does with flavour & tastes.

A very personal book ~ far more than just a collection of recipes, which conjures up the whole experience of places, tastes, sounds, sights, textures & smells. And reproducing the tastes contained within it's recipes transports you to these places.

A real treasure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Passion!, 5 July 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Passione (Paperback)
The copy of this delightful book I bought for a friends wedding anniversary arrived today, and i immediateately fell in love with both the book and the glorious recipes contained within ~ both simple & exciting, & all which make the most of the freshish of ingrediants, or the beautifully preserved tomatoes & mushrooms, or the grated truffles evocative of this simple cuisine.(Needless to say I have already ordered my own copy!)
As a vegetarian I was delighted to find that this BEAUTIFUL book, which is both visually beautiful & held together by the warmth of Gennaro's intimate personal anecdotes, is also CRAMMED full of vegetable dishes ~ 'orange & fennel salad', 'baked aubergine rolls filled with mozzerella', 'stuffed courgette parcels', 'sun-dried tomato gnocchi with black olive sauce', & 'risotto with fresh peas, broad beans and courgettes' to name but a few ~ the remaining inticing meat dishes i can't wait to make for family & friends, & may well be tempted myself.. 'anti-pesto of fresh peaches & parma ham', 'steamed meatballs', 'duck breasts in limoncello'!! 'chicken breasts with lemon & thyme', 'roast goose with apples and chestnuts in red wine', 'rabbit with garlic & rosemary served with brushetta', & 'breast of guinea fowl stuffed with herbs and served with a balsamic sauce' for example. There are also many ideas for 'pesce'(that's fish to you & me)',such as 'king prawns and crab with garlic & chilli', 'halibut with caper & dill sauce','rolled swordfish with fennel','sea bream fillets in a honey & white wine vinegar sauce', pasta dishes, soups, & basics, such as 'basic polenta with cheese' 'pasta fresca (basic pasta dough)', bread sticks (!), & 'focaccia with garlic & rosemary', basic sauce recipes & such beautiful delights as 'spicy almond biscuits', 'pear cake' & 'strawberry & limoncello ice cream'! But it was the sight of a recipe for 'pumpkin gnocchi with butter & sage', which really did it for me! I've been lucky enough to have had a traditional-style 'trattoria' run by a local Italian family to eat regularly at!! and from my experiences there, it was not difficult for the tastes & flavours of these dishes to come to life for me! And come to life these recipes really do, from the wonderfull personal anecdotes of Gennaro's childhood on the Amalfi Coast.

Recommended highly!
