The book has a bit of a self-satisfied feel to it, as if the Vervoordt emporium want to show off their wonderful achievements, which, no doubt they have.

This review is from: At Home with May and Axel Vervoordt: Recipes for Every Season (Hardcover)
Beautiful photos but recipes are not very impressive. It's more a coffee table book with lovely photos than a workable cookery book. The book has a bit of a self-satisfied feel to it, as if the Vervoordt emporium want to show off their wonderful achievements, which, no doubt they have. But this book does not contribute anything to cooking. It's more a book to show what a wonderful hostess his loving wife is than to inspire us with new wonderful cooking. In other words: every man to his own trade. The Vervoordt emporium is second to none with regard to interior decorating, but cooking is not their forte. There are countless wonderful chefs out there who do a much better job.
