enjoyable, not overly practical,
This review is from: My Kitchen: Real Food from Near and Far (New Voices in Food) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
There seems to be a trend amongst cook book writers to make them replete with glossy photos of glistening mouth watering food which the amateur cook is highly unlikely ever to replicate. This book however has no photos except on the inside covers and a few drawings.
Let me start by saying that the book is immensely readable but I actually found only a handful of dishes I was even tempted to make. There is no one style to the cooking it is in a real sense a travelogue cookbook of dishes picked up from other countries.
Just looking at the recipes again whilst writing this review I am struck by the diverse and occasionally obscure ingredients recommended. If there is one thing guaranteed to put me off a recipe it is the need to track down buttermilk or a tasty ripe tomato (other than out of a tin).
