A HEALTHY VARIETY
on 24 March 2011
This book basically delivers what it claims on the cover. Sally Bee, herself a Heart-Attack survivor, presents a range of simple, healthy dishes, nicely presented in a easy-to-read, colourful book.
Like many of the reviewers here, I agree that the recipes are basic stuff, but there is also many good tips and ideas that might not always occur to the reader. While it relies a little too much on Soups and Salads and often states the obvious, this book is ideal for dipping into and maybe trying some of the starters, or discovering that salads can be more varied than we often realise. My only real criticism of this book is that it assumes that we all have well-stocked larders with lesser-known, or lesser-used ingredients at hand, or that we all access to Waitrose or a local M&S. Some ingredients I have never heard of are definitely not stocked by my local Tesco or Morrisons !!
Nevertheless, this is a book which, while being far from essential, has its uses and can inspire us all to think a little more about what we eat...
