3.0 out of 5 stars good ideas, boring layout, unreadable font, 13 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Limoncello and Linen Water (Hardcover)
yes, the pics are gorgeous (as usual in a Tessa Kiros' work) and very many of the recipes sound good + the basic idea is brilliant - a book that celebrates all the wonderful women in Tessa's life & their food.
However this is for me a boring book in the end. Every recipe has a glorious pic, and of course there are more, and more, and more pics here and there... too much! it becomes sickly - like having a chocolate ganache on a chocolate cake, topped with chocolate and vanilla ice crem+ chantilly.... Of course this is just a matter of taste - I find TK's style too much in the end. The pics are over-styled too - too much going on in them: p 164, for instance: chicken with peppers - the lovely pic on the next page.. with same sage leaves near the chicken! they are not even part of the recipe... of course, it could be objected that this IS TK's style...Ok, I accept it, but It leaves the reader felling rather "full" and overwhelmed.

what I really object to is the choice of font: rather small and a faint grey coloured .. on a white background, it makes the page very difficult to read. after few pages I get frustrated and I give up. Maybe it is just me getting old...
... all in all, I would still recommend this book, but with the above caveat
