Eat Istanbul: A Journey to the Heart of Turkish Cu&hellip by Andy Harris

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Lovely book, fresh and clean layout, and pictures for all dishes (very important to me!). The recipes lean more towards small Tapas style meals, side dishes and street food, rather than hard slog meals for eight - but the majority of the recipes do need time and planning to prepare. You can't just spot a recipe and think "ooh! I'll try that tonight".

On the downside, some of the recipes only have names in Turkish. Other's have Turkish & English names, but the Turkish name is given prominence. It's difficult for a recipe to catch my eye if the title means nothing to me :(

There's a few specialist ingredients required. Not many, mainly the spice mixes and pastes,… Read more
Ring Automotive RCT3 Glovebox Kit by Ring Automotive
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
What seems like a good idea in practice, comes across as something you'd pick up in a motorway service station / duty free shop (which probably explains why no scissors), or one of those gift booklets that fall out of Sunday papers. This doesn't fit in my (Ford Fiesta) glove box, and if you do find yourself in a position where you have to cut seatbelts / smash car windows you'd be better keeping that tool in the side pocket of the driver's door.

The average motorist should really have most of these things dotted around their car anyway, though expect it to be popular as a standard "I don't know what to get my grandson now he's turned 17" gift, Xmas stocking filler or generic… Read more
BRITA Fill&Go Water Filter Bottle Incl. 4 Filter D&hellip by Brita
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The bottle is made of rigid plastic so you can't squeeze the sides to get the water out, and it's a large diameter which makes holding it rather difficult with small hands like mine. It does leak and the filter makes it (more) difficult to get water out of. To drink from it you pretty much have to hold it completely upside down and pour it into your tilted back head. Not a good look.

If you want to use cordial or fruit juice you're not going to want to use the filter and for drinking plain tap water, I don't think a filter is necessary. The filters are only good for a week so that's going to have to be factored in as a constant expenditure. I don't think this is good… Read more
