2.0 out of 5 stars Friends at my Table: A year of eating, drinking and making merry., 20 Dec. 2012
This review is from: Friends at My Table: A year of eating, drinking and making merry (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I was so pleased to get this book. It looks great, is a good size, padded cover - so far, so good. However, once I opened the book, I'm afraid I was completely let down by it. As other reviewers have mentioned, the different fonts and type sizes just makes the book look messy, and makes it harder to follow.

I have LOTS of cookery books, and I would say this one isn't one that will end up staying on my bookshelves. There aren't many (if any, if I'm being brutally honest) recipes that jumped out of the book and demanded I make them! I found it all rather snooty and full of recipes that would be fine for certain groups of people - alas, I don't belong in those groups!

A pretty book with lovely photos, but not one I have room for in my kitchen!!!
