5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book, 8 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Quay (Hardcover)
Its a beautiful book with some fabulous photography. It would look lovely on any coffee table - but be prepared for serious mouth watering! The list of ingredients are long and some of the time I have no idea what they are! It is not for the faint hearted but I think the book can easily be enjoyed buy anyone for what it is. The recipes themselves are a big undertaking but the results will be worth while! However I don't think you have to be a fabulous cook to get a lot out of this book - as a photography book it is beautiful and it is inspirational what ever level cook you are and if you do try the recipes then the instructions are excellent.

It would be a lovely gift, for cookery book - inspiration or simply for the coffee table!

I love this book. The patterns are great but the ideas a so helpful too. I have made quite a few home made gifts from this book already. The section on hearts is my favourite. The patterns themselves are very clear and you can easily add you own twist. The book is laid out in three chapters, red, white and blue. It splits the book up nicely and makes easy reading. It would make a lovely gift for a crafty friend.

Heston is very talented not just as a chef but in his abilitly to pass his knowledge onto other people. The book is a great guide for his recipes. The is a great section near the back that covers all sorts of odds and ends that take ordinary recipes to another level. But be prepared to spend a lot of time on these recipes to achieve Heston like perfection.

This review is from: Zumbo (Hardcover)
I love Zumbo - after seeing him on the Australian masterchef I had to find out just how hard those recipes are! And they are! His instructions are excellent and they will get you through but be prepared to spend a lot of time getting all your ingredients ready. The man is a genius and this book takes you that little bit closer to what it would be like to have him cook for you. There are recipes in there that I would never have dreamed of and the results are so worth while, his profiteroles are to die for! The pictures are beautiful too. Its the perfect book for any desert fanatic! But be prepared to while away many hours trying to reach Zumbos perfection!

4.0 out of 5 stars Truley inspired - but not for the faint hearted!, 8 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fäviken (Hardcover)
A great book, with some pretty detailed stuff in there. It is a more of a story of cooking rather than a cookery book. Don't get me wrong there are recipes but there is a lot of reading to do first! The recipes themselves are very intricate and need a lot of time, preparation and practice - the results however are worth it! There are lots of beautiful pictures too - so much more than just a cookery book!

Great book full of very pretty patterns. It is just a pattern book, no instructions as such and not a lot of reading material. It is a lovely book with some great ideas. I have completed quite a few of them already!

5.0 out of 5 stars BHS Stage 2 workbook, 8 July 2009
A great guide to stage 2, it is a revison aid though, so don't expect it to give you all the answers! It does tell you exactly what you need to know in order to pass your exam.

4.0 out of 5 stars Secrets Freya - North, 8 July 2009
This review is from: Secrets (Paperback)
Great book, easy read. I really came to like both the main characters. It does go from being very tame to very raunchy rather quickly.
