Terrific value; terrific taste,
This review is from: Good Food: Best-ever Curries: Triple-tested Recipes (Paperback)
I'm a big fan of the 'Good Food' series, but for me, this book is one of the particular highlights. The thing I like best about it is that generally all instructions are kept to one page and set out in easy to follow steps and the photo to another so you can see how your meal will turn out. I can honestly say that I've never yet had a meal turn out wrong by following publications from this series. I also like the fact that there's low fat meals, vegetarian meals etc all compiled into the one book- there's sure to be something for everyone's palate- even the fussiest of eaters.
These books are ideal for the beginner cook who wants to experiment with a new cuisine, or for the more experienced in the kitchen who is looking for a meal to develop as a basic recipe and then put their own twists on it. The recipes are fairly cheap and cheerful, but most of all delicious and nothing is too difficult to find- everything is easily accessible from your local supermarket. For dieters the calorie count is also broken down in every single recipe, which is very handy- so you know just what you're eating- always a bonus.
My favourite recipes from this book: Lamb, chickpea and spinach curry with masala mash (p142) and the creamy egg curry (p42)- sounds a bit weird but it's yummy!
