4.0 out of 5 stars Over Explained "man's" cookbook!, 16 Mar 2011
This review is from: Grillhouse (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Is it me or does the author aim this book specifically at men, I found the book very "butch" and a bit too "arty farty" for my liking, don't get me wrong, it has some nice recipes, but unless you are learning to cook from scratch, you may find that the recipes are very much over explained, and make you feel that the author thinks that those who buy this book have no cooking experience whatsoever.

It has some lovely recipes, but is it me or do the photos not quite give the recipes the justice that they deserve, they seem very dark, bland, and in some shots look very under exposed.

This book could have been a 5 star affair, but sadly it didn't quite sit up there with the best for me, I applaud the authors efforts, but I feel that the over all presentation of the book and the fact that everything is written as if you were reading a dummies guide to cooking, takes the winning edge off the title for me.

Lovely steak recipes in here, though, hence why there are four stars, with my husband being a prolific carnivore, they won him over!
