THE GERMAN FOOD BOOK: PREPARING, COOKING AND SERVING FOOD FROM GERMANY.
THE GERMAN FOOD BOOK: PREPARING, COOKING AND SERVING FOOD FROM GERMANY.
by Judy. Ridgway
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Not just a cook book of recipes, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What I particularly liked about this volume is the attention given to cultural anecdotes in addition to the information about German foods and the recipes. I really get a sense of what makes the Germans passionate about their foods and that made creating some of the dishes more enjoyable.

I purchased two of these for a holiday tripand they performed very nicely indeed. Audio quality is significantly better than no speakers at all and better than many cheap alternatives. Easy to set up and use, taking up very little luggage space. These were a useful buy for me - recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating read, 12 May 2014

Less of a tutorial and more of a reportage on Joshuas journey to the memory championships. This book shows just what is possible with real, dedicated, hard work and the right techniques. If you are inspired I would recommend purchasing another , more tutorial style publication, but this volume is recommended to aspiring memory trainees for inspiration.

4.0 out of 5 stars It works, 12 May 2014

I have read a few books on mnemonics over the years. This is one of the better ones. The methods are well known but the way to make them effective is using your imagination which Ed Cooke encourages very well in this volume. If you follow the advice, practice and work at it (yes - it does involve real work) then the results can be yours. Impress your friends, family, tutor or classmates.

A useful device for keen cooks and possibly other uses (?). I use this for making sure my bread making yeast gets water at just the perfect temperature and it 'does what it says on the ' packet. Wine and beer makers might have a use for this. I use it to check temp of cooked meats. Simple to operate. The buttons 'might' be a little small for large or elderly fingers. Good price and nice product.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not everyone's cuppa tea, 12 May 2014

OK, I am not the right age group for this kinda movie so it is no surprise I cannot rave about this. I bought this on the strength of the reviews and to be sure if you are between 16 and 35 you may well fall about and thoroughly enjoy this dvd. If you are outside the upper limit of that range you may well find yourself dozing off halfway through.


House Season 7 [DVD]

3.0 out of 5 stars Still thoroughly watchable, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: House Season 7 [DVD] (DVD)
It is in season seven that I detect that just a little of the shine has worn from the gem that is 'House'. Hugh Laurie is, as ever, highly watchable but you just feel a little tiredness creeping into his portrayal. New characters are brought in to maintain interest but it is fairly clear that the writers are flagging slightly. Interesting guest appearances lift some stories and as always the tortuous relationships between the diagnostics team members fills the gaps between new unexpected symptoms and the crash cart!
If you enjoy House you won't be disappointed with this seventh outing, but everything has its day and House may be reaching the twilight of its run of success. We shall see...

4.0 out of 5 stars Def worth a try, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Because this is , slightly, out of the ordinary, it took me until disc two before I built a rapport with the characters. After that the whole saga gathers pace and the plot develops beautifully. I was left with a real sense of regret that this series did not see more prime time broadcast. Shame. Recommended.

Highly enjoyable. Went through the disc collection at the rate of one disc per evening. The process did not drag or feel labored. A testament to good writing and a good cast.


Home Smoking and Curing
Home Smoking and Curing
by Keith Erlandson
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £9.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Clear and knowledgeable advice, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For me this did not excite. Whilst it is a good book for those needing advice on the subject, my own assumption before purchase was that curing and smoking were methods of preservation. After reading this volume I believe they are methods of flavoring which does not offer long term storage of produce which would otherwise spoil.
