I have actually found a cookbook where my end result looks the same as on the picture in the book! AMAZING! And all cooked with ease. The receipes are easy to understand and to follow and the food is just delicious. I have also cooked receipes from the other books out of this series, e.g. pasta, seafood and fingerfood. They are all as good as this one. Highly recommended even for beginners.

Have had this book for years in French, got water damaged so I decided to pick up a *cheap* English copy. Great, thorough, mouth-wateringly illustrated, runs from soups and starters all the way through to desserts, cakes and drinks - very cosmopolitan drawing on international cuisine suitable for veggies : you'll find aubergine caviar, Indian sides and curries, a good old strudel recipe that's totally delicious etc. Also, fantastic 20-30 page introduction covering all aspects of diet from vitamins, minerals, fibres and proteins to correct food associations, there is also a great full page food triangle which I used to use to educate my kids about eating the right things - sweets, sugar, butter on top (eat less), veggies, fruit and wholegrain cereals at the bottom (eat more). Chefs' hats off to you!
