The most off putting part was the lack of photographs although I appreciate that homemade dishes rarely look like the photographs in the books they at least give you a feel of what the completed dish should be.
The book starts with 23 pages of hints and tips, some quite useful but many of the type "You can watch your food cooking through the glass bowl" I had guessed that. The recipes are then divided into six sections:-
1/ Just Vegetables
2/Rice, Pasta, Grains and Beans
3/Meat, Poultry and Game
5/Sweet and Sticky Desserts
In all about 100 recipes, which to be fair have comprehensive instructions and each have an introduction with the advice to use a tin/dish which fits your oven and start with the instruction "Remove the lid from the halogen oven" which I must admit is a pretty good start. Some of the recipes have an unusual twist for example on the back cover it states "All the traditional favourites such as Shepherd's Pie....." This is the first time I have found Shepherd's pie without potatoes and carrots and parsnips instead.
In summary if this is going to be your first halogen cookbook buy one of the other ones with the same or similar titles for example the one by Paul Jones & Leah Meads, however if you have other books and you do not mind the lack of photographs this book will add to your collection of recipes.
I gave the book 4 stars, mainly due to not trying out the good range of recipes given, but on description, they appear to provide some very good and many examples as to what may satisfy a few taste buds, so perhaps I should have waited longer with the scoring!.
Now I know that vegetables take much longer to cook than meat, they go in first.
