4.0 out of 5 stars Great recipes but lacking a decent contents page, 3 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Mums Know Best: The Hairy Bikers' Family Cookbook (Hardcover)
A great book full of well known recipes, most of which I will eventually try. A bargain for £5. Unfortunately, the contents page is useless with just six section pages (e.g 'show-off food', birthday treats' etc). Decided I wouldnt use the book much if I had to browse through every page to find inspiration or to find a recipe a second time so spent ages creating a proper contents page. Hopefully, some others will find it useful:-

The contents page has a dual use because you can also see the books contained recipes before deciding to buy it. Thank you for your time and trouble writing this out. x

Thanks so much D. Wells, for your time and effort making this list.It's such a help. I was going to go to Waterstones and have a look. I think I'll buy it from here after all.
