4.0 out of 5 stars Usually tasty, but not always original, 18 Jun. 2012
This review is from: Comfort & Spice (New Voices in Food) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I enjoyed a lot of the recipes in this book that I've tried and generally found the directions easy to follow, although a little more blunt clarity for a duffer like me might help, but I have to say that a lot of these recipes seem somewhat familiar and I have seen probably at least half in other books. Now there's nothing wrong with that as we all like our old favourites but nothing really struck me as being a brilliant new take on an old favourite. I also often find that in that quest to be original some cooks will put things together that simply don't belong together. Nothing I have tried from this book has been like that but a few have left me thinking that it was okay at best. It's a nice book to have and maybe provide inspiration to lift you out of a moribund diet, or to give as a gift, but I'd say there are better books out there if you want to look.
