Master it: How to cook today
Master it: How to cook today

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful book full of information!, 6 Nov. 2013
I've had this beautiful book since August and I still feel that I have not read it properly. Each time I pick it up there is more to see, more to learn and of course more to cook. Magical recipes like Raspberry Alaska with Sparkling sauce are what defines Rory's style. He guides you through easy yet delicious recipes like Salad of oranges, dates and mint to slightly more complex dishes. Everything seems effortlessly achievable and is beautifully explained by the author. There is a fantastic introduction about shopping well, setting up your kitchen properly and all the essentials you will need. This book would make a wonderful gift for both the experienced and non experienced cook which is a rarity. I really do feel that this style of food is how we should eat today. I can't wait to finish reading all 550+ pages!

Effective Birth Preparation (Hospital or Birth Centre): Self Hypnosis (Natal Hypnotherapy Programme)
Effective Birth Preparation (Hospital or Birth Centre): Self Hypnosis (Natal Hypnotherapy Programme)
by Maggie Howell
Edition: Audio CD
Price: £11.09

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 28 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved this and used it for both of my natural births. I just played it whenever I was going for a rest and I've never actually listened to what it says but it surely had sunk into my subconcious. At best it will leave you confident, relaxed and prepared once those initial feelings of labour begin. At worst you will get a lovely CD to relax and unwind to which is so important for both mother and baby. A lovely CD to bond with baby and enjoy pregnancy. I have given it to many of my friends and they have all gained something from it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely book, 28 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was given this as a present and it really is beautiful. Alot of the recipes are ones I'm familiar with already but I appreciate their twist and the style in which they present them. Their blog is beautiful and full of even more inspiring recipes and ideas. If they publish another book I will surely buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best toys I've ever bought!, 28 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quality is gorgeous and such a beautiful product. Even aesthetically I love leaving this on the windowsill for the sun to shine through the coloured blocks. Babies of all ages are able to play with this, taking apart the blocks, shaking them or stacking them. Lovely gentle noises from the beads etc. Really lovely.
