4.0 out of 5 stars Usually tasty, but not always original
I enjoyed a lot of the recipes in this book that I've tried and generally found the directions easy to follow, although a little more blunt clarity for a duffer like me might help, but I have to say that a lot of these recipes seem somewhat familiar and I have seen probably at least half in other books.

2.0 out of 5 stars AVOID the choc mousse with honeycomb receipe, 23 Jun 2012

The other receipes could be fine but I'm not risking it.
