5.0 out of 5 stars An absolutely beautiful book, 20 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Art of Eating Well (Hardcover)
Arrived today, visually stunning. A friend recommended this to me saying the recipes would be right up my street. I've already earmarked everything that I'm making this weekend - can't wait!

An update; two months on and I have been regularly cooking from the book, waistline decreased, energy levels increased so much so that now my friends want in and are doing 'H+H'. I've been reading some of the other reviews and people have been picking up on the expense and difficult to find ingredients. I have read the book cover to cover and found that the basic idea is to eat good quality meat and lots of vegetables, which I have not found expensive or difficult to find. They talk about frugal eating and sourcing local producers who can offer cheaper cuts of quality meat and recommend cooking in bulk to save time and money. The only small cost, I would say is really on your time initially and getting your head round the ideas (especially with the fat thing and not having toast!), but 2 months in and now I've got my butcher and sorted out my online orders for things like quinoa and buckwheat and some of the lentils I'm actually spending less time in the kitchen.
I have been loving the roast lamb on the weekend and cooking up a bone broth once a week which I've been making soups and stews with. I bought a bigger saucepan so that I can cook up lots at once as I have a pretty hectic job and I have been living off mung dahl, the curries and lentil and cabbage stew, and the frittatas and coconut tahini bliss balls are my lunchtime staples. All of them have been pretty straight forward to make and satisfying and now I've got my meals sorted there's no room for my biscuits anymore hence my weight loss!
