Raw Food/Real World: 100 Recipes to Get the Glow by Matthew Kenney
13 of 13 people found the following review helpful
I really like this book and do find it inspirational. However, many many of the recipes just can't be made. They take too long, the ingredients are difficult to find or prohibitively expensive.
I still think this book is worth buying though for the remaining recipes that can be made. The cool smoothies, salads, juices and some of the cookies and sweets.
Unimagined: A Muslim Boy Meets the West by Imran Ahmad

5.0 out of 5 stars Much aplomb, 11 Jun 2008
Imran Ahmad has written a benevolent and charming account of growing up in Britain as a Pakistani Muslim.

It's a joyful read and Imran, with his eye to being British circa 1910 and woeful attempts to be James Bond minus the martinis is an endearing main character.

Ultimately there is a lot in this book that everyone can identify with. It's a book about growing up, figuring out what you believe in and fitting in.

Every generation reinterprets the customs and laws of the previous generations according to their own lights. Despite all the pratfalls this book shows how it's done. And with much aplomb.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful book, 16 Nov 2006
Although I have not tried many recipes from this book as yet all those I have tried have worked and been wonderful. This book is a delight to read and Skye's prose is quite inspirational. She tends to compose simple recipes with a careful use of sweet, sour salty etc and the end result is very good indeed. I hope to use this cook book a lot, however, some of the recipes are prohibitive in terms of the ingredients. There are nevertheless many ideas that I hope will make it into my kitchen. Great book.
