This review is from: The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook (Hardcover)
I have been a fan of the Smitten Kitchen blog for some time and was eagerly anticipating the release of the book. Unfortunately, the UK release date was delayed by around 4/5 months due to the production of a specific UK edition. I agree with the other reviewer who says the 'translations' are sometimes a bit odd and that some of the charm is lost. I own the original US edition too (couldn't wait!) and tbh, I don't really see the point of many of the changes. It's pretty simple nowadays to Google any of the ingredients or terms which we don't have in the UK. However, this doesn't stop this book being completely brilliant and well worth having. The recipes ALWAYS work (due to the author's exhaustive tweaking!) and are ALWAYS gorgeous. There also isn't much cross over with the blog, which makes it good value for money too.
