3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but..., 3 Dec 2011
I haven't cooked much from this book yet - the recipes I have done have been fine, BUT I'm not sure whether an editor has been anywhere near this book. One recipe calls for the oven to be preheated, but it's never actually used in the recipe. Another asks you to fry some potatoes and set them aside, but they are never added to the final dish. And those are just the ones I've noticed so far. Perhaps watching the series was essential to understanding the book. I don't doubt the ability of the chef, but the book is not brilliantly put-together, meaning you have to guess a few of the steps. Personally, as a disliker-of-pears, I find there are far too many recipes which contain pears.

I bought this product for my son's birthday - he is very happy with it, but I am a little less pleased. The image features a "police" bonnet for the car. This is not what I received (but was especially what I wanted). The box arrived poorly packaged, and damaged - not ideal for a gift, but I didn't have enough time to complain and try to get a replacement.

Some of the pieces won't hold together properly which can make playing frustrating. Play value is good so far - my son (aged 10) loves fidlling about and redesigning the cars (we have… Read more
Venom Black EVA Carry Case (Nintendo DS) by Venom
I got this for my son, and due to the poor design of the mesh for holding games and accessories, he lost his only game on the day he got it (his birthday). It's great for protecting the ds lite itself, but don't keep any games in it. I shall be buying a replacement case.
