5.0 out of 5 stars Less can sometimes be more, 5 Oct 2006
This review is from: Cooking Without (Paperback)
This was the first of Barbara's books that I had and I started reading the introduction and could not put it down. So much she said resonated with me. For a book entitled "Cooking Without" I have found more wonderful recipes that in any other cook books I have owned. Perhaps it is making use of such good ingredients that makes the flavours in her recipes seem so rich and satisfying. The alternatives she offers mean I am not put off my something I don't like or don't know where to get hold of, and I think my tastebuds are finally growing up. And oh joy - recipes that I can eat without fear of piling on the weight - I can eat good food every day and not think I will have to make it up by "being good" tomorrow - a cook book without guilt that is not for "slimmers" only! I cannot recommend this, or her other two books, too highly. Do yourself a favour and buy it - and do read the introduction.

Ugh. Spew. Could this be any more gushing? I find it suspicious that all the positive reviews of this book have been written by people who haven't written ANY other reviews! Multiple accounts by the same biased person perhaps?
