Disappointing for the talented chef
on 11 May 2012
Sadly, disappointed with this book and guess it offers great value for the price but was not prepared for the small size and the overlap with the other books I have. I bought it for a friend as a pressie but it has gone in my cupboard as it was unsuitable to give as not special enough. Also the recipes are not as fun and exciting as in his other books.
My favourite all time book is his Blanc Vite... my bible for quick and scrummy food. Instead, I would recommend buying this second hand as it's expensive new. Just emailed friends with the clam and mussel recipe which is a 5 minute wonder!! However, there is no better chef in my eyes so please Raymond if you are reading... keep coming out with those books and TV programmes and if you are looking for someone to sample before you print... yes I would gladly offer to help!!
