5.0 out of 5 stars Love it and use it all the time, 13 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great book, easy to read, understand and makes so much sense. I read it from cover to cover and now have it with me most of the time. The recipes in the back are truly delicious and nutritious. I would say its a must for anyone British as it is a great guide on truly nourishing ourselves for those of us who have evolved on this island. The ingredients are accessible and can be managed on a budget.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book, 30 Sep 2011
This really is the definitive guide to bread making - having never explored sour-dough I can now bake wheat, rye and rice sour-dough breads which are better than I can buy. The gluten free section provides better cakes and bread than anywhere else i have looked including several gluten free devoted recipe books. A fascinating read and a must for every bread maker.

1.0 out of 5 stars no use in the UK, 5 Jun 2011
as so many others have said , probably great if you can find the ingredients for the recipes but unless you're in California, you'll never know because few of the ingredients are commonplace here in the UK

3.0 out of 5 stars help for overeaters?, 26 May 2011
I haven't found this book particularly helpful as it takes ten pages to say one page worth of information - plus i couldn't relate to a lot of it
If I knew how I would put it back up for sale

3.0 out of 5 stars An American, dated cookbook, 9 Oct 2010
I was disappointed when I received this book. It had been recommended by a fellow cook. It is dated and very American - in that it uses weights, ingredients and beans that I may never find in this country. It is also quite specialized for more traditional macrobiotic cooks, which in itself is geographically based. Macrobiotic cooking in europe has evolved considerably since the 70's . Not sure I'll use this book at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars An eclectic musical selection, 9 Oct 2010
This review is from: Eat, Pray, Love (Audio CD)
I bought this CD after seeing the film, such that I can now relive the fantastic colour and striking vivid beautiful images whilst listening to this lovely soundtrack. It gets me and my daughter singing and dancing each time we play it. Easy listening of popular songs, both classical and world music. Each song creates its own atmosphere. Lovely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous recipes for vegetables, vegetarian and meat dishes alike., 9 Oct 2010
This is a great book with a wealth of recipes. Organized into months, it offers inspiring dishes, preserves etc for seasonal fruit and vegetables. Great for veg boxes and those who like to eat seasonally, or gardeners struggling with seasonal gluts. However it also offers delicious recipes for any cook. I am yet to find a vegetable that doesn't feature in this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars An American macrobiotic grain cookbook, 9 Oct 2010
This book is dated and uses American weights, measures, ingredients and terminology. It is also quite specialized, useful for the keen grain, more traditional macrobiotic cook especially if familiar with or willing to research American grains and herbs. Not sure I will actually use it.
