A bit disappointed!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Kitchen Table: 100 Foolproof Suppers (Paperback)
I adore Gizzi Erskine. Seriously. Love her food, love her. Because of this I already have and love her Kitchen Magic book, and was disappointed to see that of the 100 recipes contained in this book, many were exact reprints of the ones in that book! Effectively I've duplicated that book (minus a lot of the helpful 'how to cook' tips) in THIS book. So that's why I'm disappointed. If I didn't have Kitchen Magic, I'd give this book 4 or 5 stars, because the recipes, and the woman behind them, are top drawer. I hate having to give this such a mediocre star rating.
If you haven't got Gizzi's Kitchen Magic, buy this. If you have, still buy this, but be aware of the duplication. For the price it is fantastic.

I've been toying with leaving a review to warn people of this. This whole series seems to be a "best of", which is tricky when you only have the one book. I guess the lady needs to earn a living though!
