What Your Dog Is Begging For!: Raw Meaty Bones, Your Dogs Best Friend.
What Your Dog Is Begging For!: Raw Meaty Bones, Your Dogs Best Friend.
Price: £9.31

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for all dog owners, 27 May 2014
This book helped change my understanding about what my dogs were really asking for. Nikki's book explains in a clear, concise manner the damage caused by commercial foods. She highlights the benefits of a Raw Meaty Bones diet and how to safely and easily switch your dog's diet to something far more natural.

I followed her advice on how and what to feed together with the Natural Pet Vitality supplement she recommends, it was a short time before I noticed the changes. The dogs were calmer, quieter and settled more quickly after eating, Coat condition improved and the dogs appeared much brighter. A very welcome benefit of natural feeding is that dog faeces are now much less offensive, smaller and much easier to pick up.

My dogs now appear much happier and healthier. The advice given in this book has also enabled me to save money on dog feed and veterinary bills.

I would recommend all dog owners regardless of experience to add this book as essential reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for vegetarians and carnivores alike, 6 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Paradiso Seasons (Hardcover)
If you want to cook vegetarian food to impress then buy this book. the follow up to Cafe Paradiso Cookbook in my opinion this is even better. A word of warning though. If you have previously purchased A Paradiso Year: Autumn and Winter Cooking or A Paradiso Year: Spring and summer Cooking, then dont buy this as these two books make up Paradiso seasons.

If I could i would have given it six stars. As with his first book Denis Cotter writes in a relaxed, sometimes humorous and easy to follow way His passion for his food shows through along with the importance of good seasonal local produce. Lovely photographs show off the recipes wonderfully. I have made several recipes from this book and my favourites include sweet chilli fried tofu with leeks in coconut and lemongrass broth an the Carrot and chestnut cannellini with watercress cream

this book shows how good vegetarian food can be and should be. The emphasis is on good local produce simply presented with some really interesting flavour combinations like Gingered kale, walnut and pumpkin gratin and the deep fried salsify and celeriac fritters. the recipes are well written and easy to follow and beautifully photographed

4.0 out of 5 stars I like it but . . ., 6 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Found the Cafe Paradiso Cookbook, was really impressed and purchased Paradiso Seasons, A Paradiso Year: Autumn and Winter Cooking and A Paradiso Year: Spring and Summer Cooking. I was really disappointed to discover the two Paradiso Year books made up Paradiso Seasons. i would highly recommend you buy Paradiso Seasons and save yourself some money. If you do buy this however there are some fantastic recipes. Lovely photos and easy to follow text, the only problem will be what to cook first.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful looking but . . ., 6 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a book I was really excited to buy but which has really disappointed me so far. Dont get me wrong the recipes look great and they are beautifully photographed, but the text layout is very busy and cluttered for my taste. It is estimated that on average we only recreate 2 recipes for every cook book we buy. I have really enjoyed looking at the photos but have to admit to not trying any.of the recipes as the text layout has just completely put me off

5.0 out of 5 stars a breath of fresh air, 21 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is not just a wonderful cookery book but also an interesting insight into how Malu and Alberto met, fell in love not only each other but the idea of running a vegetarian hotel based on fresh local produce in an area where it was unheard of.

The recipes are bright modern and bursting with flavour and not a lentil in sight. The recipes are broken down by course. The first recipe I made was the Ricotta and Tomato Sauce Cannelloni. The cannelloni was light and fresh with the zing of lemon zest and the tomato sauce smooth and luscious.

i didnt need much persuasion to try more and i'm slowly working my way through.

Alberto gives wine recommendations for many of the recipes.

i have over 100 vegetarian cookery books but this one is out more than most
