4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely style, 3 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a really engaging and generous read, it goes along in a good conversational style and it really is packed with things that you never knew that you needed until you came upon them here. I think that it is quite a good way of expanding a simple home repertoire for the family. I have it in Kindle and hard copy and I have to admit that I like the latter more.

But this really is a book crammed with a ton of useful and enlightening information. I really enjoyed this book and it is really an essential part of a gardener's library.

What a story, what an amazing story, I was encouraged to read this when I found out that Wes Anderson based a lot of his work for Grand Budapest Hotel around the novels of Zweig and so I decided to read some. really enjoyed the intensity and soul of this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Is this a translation?, 3 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ths language is so poor, that although the stories are actually not the very worst, it is as though they have been translated from another language through a machine! I had to adapt the stories while reading them to my kids to actually get them to make sense. Not great.

Maybe it is a combination of the sweet family stories and the detailed pictures that makes these so appealing but whatever it is, my daughter who is 6 loves them .

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally worth buying, 13 Feb 2014

This great bok is beautifully constructed, it feels great to hold, has an amazing spine that opens and stays open, has recipes that are fresh, usuable, inspiring and tasty.

I first came across this cookbook at a dinner party where the hostess was cooking a pizza that had just rosemary and thinly sliced new potatoes on it. I was msesmerised and it was delicious. I kept the name of the book in the back of my mind and a year later I bought it for myself, I am now just mad for it.

We had the book with us on a holiday, each day, we all chose something to make and each evening we were delighted with our choices. Highly recommend the meatballs with what seems like a preposterous amount of fennel seeds. Just magic.

The illustrations are just beautiful in van Dusen`s books. Characters are endearing and man's best friend is all you would expect. My kids request and re request these books by him again and again.
