Good, but not as good as the original Great Dishes,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: New Great Dishes of the World (Paperback)
I have enormous respect and admiration for Robert Carrier as I feel he taught me to cook from the early 1970s with his master-work "Great Dishes of the World". The backbone of my repertoire comes from that superb book and so I bought this, his later book, "New Great Dishes of the World". I was a little disappointed as I don't feel his heart was his this book as it was for the earlier work in which his passion and sheer enjoyment in the recipes he described shone through his writing. The new recipes are more fashionable, in that they largely eschew cream and butter, but they are not great in the same way that the classics of the earlier book are nor, I think, will they stand the test of time in the same way.
