The book is more historical interest than cookbook notwithstanding the plethora of recipes as many of these are repetiitve and some downright strange although many of them do promise delectable results and I especially appreciate the Fast-Track Guide on page 6 listing the most practical and exotic specimens for anyone stuck for where to start. The recipes have been tested by the authors and re-written where necessary in the interests of clarity. Personally, the appeal of this book for me is in reading it rather than trying the recipes and there are plenty of snippets of fascinating esoterica.
