Delicious and effective recipes for the less than confident cook!!,
This review is from: The Little Paris Kitchen: Classic French recipes with a fresh and fun approach (Hardcover)I have finally started to enjoy cooking courtesy of The Little Paris Kitchen! I am a less than confident cook but love to entertain and these easy to follow recipes are big on charm and flavour. I tried the Sabayon aux Saint-Jacques last night and it was a huge success with my friends asking for more more more! The trout with fennel and creme fraiche is easy to do and tastes beautiful - the perfect lunch dish. I am a huge fan of the lamb spring stew which I have cooked twice now and I was really thrilled with the results. I am looking forward to trying out the cheese souffle and trying my hand at the apple millefeuille! The book is beautifully presented and a pleasure to read, the chatty style makes you feel like Miss Khoo is with you in the kitchen giving friendly tips and entertaining anecdotes. It has also made me more interested in the actual ingredients I am cooking with, which has encouraged me to go to my local butcher and fishmonger rather than buying from the supermarket. It is fun getting into a dialogue with people about which cut of meat is best etc, suddenly cooking becomes so much more personal. I just wish we had the same array of independent foodie shops here as they do in Paris!! I strongly recommend this cook book and I can confirm it makes a great gift!!

Out of interest, CarolineC: how did you manage to cook so many dishes from a book that has been published for about a week?

Mr. P. A. Mitchell says:
Luxie makes a very good point. There is something a bit suspicious about a couple of the reviews of this book.

Possibly because of the TV series which accompanied the book and featured many of the recipes?

This is supposed to be a review for a book. If I cook something from a TV program (which in this case also happens to be utterly laughable) I do say so. May I also quote the OP? " The book is beautifully presented and a pleasure to read, the chatty style makes you feel like Miss Khoo is with you in the kitchen giving friendly tips and entertaining anecdotes." I remain profoundly unconvinced. Fake reviews make me angry. Even more so when they are so easy to spot.

I agree with the other comments. It really looks like a fake comment.

Quelle surprise, still nothing from Caroline. Agree with the others, this looks like a fake review, and quite a transparent one at that. Most tiresome.
