5.0 out of 5 stars Far Flung Floyd

3.0 out of 5 stars Far to much chat and photos. But for die hard fans this is ok. If not die hard you may want to think again!!

Particularly good are Chiang Mai curry and the Vietnamese chicken with caramel and chilis.

Ok, not as good as I expected - lots of memories, but ok and as I love Floyd I am sure in the future I will use a few of the recipes. There are some good ones, its just there is a lot of conversation in between, which is nice, but there is a lot!! In fact, the recipes only start on page 107! SO ALOT OF TALK FIRST!!! PLUS even more before each recipe - and pages devoted to photos! literally four pages at a time.
Areas covered:
Malaysia, Hong Kong Vietnam, Thailand. A good section on covering Ingredients too, before the recipes. Short section on stocks and sauces at end.

If you really are a Floyd fan, this is ok, but man this man is a chatterbox!!!!!!!
