On the less serious side, the recipes primarily use spoon and cup measurements, which I have no issue with. A set of spoons and cups is easy and cheap to pick up and actually convenient to use, so no problems there. They also use American names for ingredients, scallions for spring onions, cilantro instead of coriander, etc. Again not that much of an issue.
Where it really starts getting annoying is the times when the recipes use weighed ingredients: a three to four pound chicken,for example, or a 14-ounce can of beans, with no metric alternative. Even more irritatingly, oven temperature is only given in fahrenheit in the recipe instructions.
While the book does provide you with a 'handy' conversion table at the back, it baffles me why they couldn't have included alternative measurements in the recipes themselves, rather than force me to flick to the back to double-check (and it doesn't solve my gripe about the weights either).
It's probably not worth returning the book over, but it does show real laziness on the part of the publisher, and it's an irritation which could have been so easily prevented with some pretty minor editing of the recipes.
Gwynnie has been gracing my kitchen for the last month. Hesitant at first, I initially tried quinoa and almond milk with some fruit for breakfast. Finding it actually quite delicious and filling, I set about cooking more of the recipes and for the last 4 weeks, we have only eaten recipes from this book.
This is what I have cooked so far:
Chicken and Kale soup - didn't think I'd like it as it looked too "brothy" but it was so good I;ve made it another 3 times.
Sweet Potato and Chipotle soup
Teriyaki chicken - had it every week!
Hoisin sauce - far better than shop bought and surprisingly easy
Chinese Dumpings - totally smug! So easy, quick and very impressive to give to guests!
Turkey and Sweet Potato chilli - fantastic for batch cooking
Chicken and white bean chilli
Banana and almond muffins
New York Street Vendor Salad
Spanish BBQ Chicken
Braised Chicken with Olives
Korean Chicken wraps
Korean BBQ Sauce
Cauliflower and Chickpea salad thing
As you can see, there is a wide variety and the thing that has been the biggest surprise for me is that it is really family friendly and fantastic for batch cooking. Once our shopping has been delivered, I usually cook/prepare everything for the week. For example, last week I made both the turkey and chicken chillis and that was our dinners for the whole week.Read more ›
I have always been interested in nutrition as well as cooking. I was very surprised how many average and bad reviews this book has, my experience with it completely differs. It must be hard as a celebrity to put yourself up for doing something like this, as people feel they know you and are very quick to criticise, personally, celebrity aside, this book is great. I absolutely love the salad dressings, I have made at least 5 of them, they work ever time! Lee's hoisin sauce is quick, simple, delicious and a huge hit with my teenage girls, if you compare the ingredients with the chemical loaded shop bought ones, it is really very clever and no hidden nasties. I cook her many mushroom soup on a regular basis and the roasted cauliflower and chickpeas has become a staple in our house. The Sriracha chilli sauce is fantastic and adds a real depth of flavour to so many dishes and last for 6 months in the fridge. The quinoa granola is amazing, I use pecans instead of walnuts, very very tasty.Read more ›
