Size isn't everything,
This review is from: 200 One Pot Meals: Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook: 200 One Pot Recipes (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I think the compact format of the 'hamlyn 200' range of cookery books is great; they are small, feature full colour photos for pretty much all the recipes and yet there are 200 recipes in each book - pretty much the same as you would get in much bigger tomes from the 'celebrity' chefs and at a much smaller price. I have a few now and they look good together on the shelf.
'One Pot Meals' has a really good range of recipes for one pot meals mostly made from ingredients that you can find in any good supermarket. There is also an international flavour to the book which features recipes for bakes, casseroles, stir-frys, pies, risottos and soups from all over the world such as Spain, Japan, Greece, Morrocco, France, Italy, Mexico as well as good ol' Blighty. I found this book more inspirational than a lot of the big name books that are sitting gathering dust on my kitchen shelf. There is a good introduction and a vegetarian section with 23 recipes (try '200 veggie Feasts' in the same range for more).
