I don't just use a Cookery Book to obtain Recipe's.I like a book that tells a story.This book gives a little in-sight into another country's food's and the beautiful way to serve "crisp& clean" looking dishes. It's beautifully presented and will be useful for summer cooking as well as winter. Nothing is too difficult for a simple cook to handle. (At least that how it looks to me!)Great for a Gift.

So far only thumbed through - looks to have some interesting and novel ideas - maybe would have liked a hardback version.

Because these are traditional recipes, few can be easily adapted to vegetarianism and virtually none can be adapted to suit vegans.

These are rich recipes from areas where until a generation ago, the main food sources in winter were winter vegetables and animal products (dairy, egs, meat, etc.) The food is very rich and no nutritional information is provided (this can be good or bad, depending on your view!)

The organization, by degree of formality of the result, is a bit strange but not insurmountable.

It would have benefitted from more editing, as I found at least two errors in just the cheesecake recipe.

The Winter Vegetable Crumble recipe alone makes this book worth the price.

A beautiful book to sit by the fire and read, I haven't used any of the recipes yet.

Not bad but not too useful
