5.0 out of 5 stars Pasta: The Essential New Collection from the Master of Italian Cookery., 12 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Pasta written by Antonio Carluccio full of recipes and information by the chef,it is clear that he enjoys what he does,the book has some wonderful tips and advice with easy to follow guides,the history of pasta is informative,it tells you how and where pasta came from but the word pasta is really Italian.
There are recipes that he can be seen to show how to make fresh pasta & how to shape the pasta,soup recipes using fresh shell fish and the region of Italy that it originated from,even gives alternatives to please all tastes.
I like the way the book is set out with information and small snippets with some really good photos they say the Italian way is the best way to eat,i would recommend this book if you like pasta with easy to follow instructions with foods that most of us have in our cupboards.

4.0 out of 5 stars Raspberry Ketone., 12 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Raspberry Ketone is a vitamin that covers a few things they say it regulates the body's metabolism to help weight loss but they also say that it is good for bone protection,having read a little more it has been stated that there is no prof,i was using it for bone protection,Raspberry Ketone has a distinctive smell of raspberry which is not unpleasant the rest remains to be seen.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Natural Cook:Eating the Seasons from Root to Fruit, Tom Hunt., 26 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a lovely book with plenty of info and ideas,it also has some wonderful photos to see throughout the book,each season is listed within the book,each season has the veg and fruit plus salad listed,i like the bits that say about eating the veg raw roasted or blanched,it even gives the months that you should be eating the item,this is something that is missing now as most foods you can just have at any point of the year.
There are some really good recipes some you will know and some are as fresh as the vegetable and fruit that you have grown or bought,great book with some really good information and recipes.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Art Of Baking Blind., 14 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This tells the story of 5 people who have come together to compete in a competition,they all come from different walks of life no 2 the same,they have all got a reason to be there!the one thing that they do have in common is a passion for baking,very similar to some of the TV programs that you see like The Great British Bake Off etc.
The end result is to be the new Kathleen Eaden who was a cookery writer and the wife of a supermarket giant,who found out that you can not be perfect in everything in life,as you read through the story you can feel the tension in places and can see the similarity to things that you watch on TV,this is a very nice easy read that has been well written with humor and sensitivity a very enjoyable read.

Brilliant collection of songs from the 60's free from Amazon,most of the songs are so well known that it made me look back to when i was growing up,i really believe this is such a good collection to wet the appetite it will make you look into more of this era,well done Amazon for giving customers the chance to have a good section of music for free.

This is a very nice Toaster, the sides are a deep burgundy with a polished stainless steel front,top,back,the toaster is very large in size so would cover for commercial use,it has 4 sturdy feet to stand on which would be good for keeping the toaster clean,the operation of the toaster are nice and easy to use with very clear heat settings,easy to do muffins or bagels in,the toaster cooks at a very nice even colour,all in all a very nice toaster,would recommend for use at home or a small cafe.
