Almost too handsome!,
This review is from: MoVida Rustica (Hardcover)
This is a splendid piece of work. Amazing photography, beautiful page design, elegant text layout and some interesting fonts. Add to that some great quality paper and you have a really first class presentation.
This is my first collection of Spanish recipes to join my groaning cookbook shelves. There are undoubtedly some recipes that I will explore and enjoy - but the layout of the book does make it rather hard to find things.
Everything is split up into sections (Tapas, various regions and so forth) but it does mean that starters, mains, side dishes and desserts are all mixed in with one another. I may be a traditionalist - but, on the whole, I prefer to look for recipes in a more ordered fashion.
This is very much a personal preference and in no way diminishes the book as a collection of tasty ideas. It will just take me a while to get used to it as a reference manual.
It will never actually go into my kitchen - I will write the recipes out so that I don't damage the book!!
