Format: Paperback
Came across this whilst browsing a local bookshop. If you have a passion for food, like I have, then you will find this a fascinating read. I honestly thought I had a good knowledge of food but reading this book has shown me that there is so much more to learn. The book is written in a style that encourages you to explore food to ultimate level. Little mini projects such as exploring and tasting different Olive oils, familiarising yourself with all the different variety of prawns to eat and 50 things that a "foodie" must try, make this book exciting from start to finish.

Beautifully written with wonderful photography, I would encourage anyone to go out and buy this.

I've been looking forward to this book for a long time, wondering if her editors would let Pim be Pim. I needn't have worried. This gorgeous little book is as smart and sassy as its author -- full of strongly-held opinions, wise culinary advice from around the globe, enchanting photos (many taken by the author) and wonderful, wonderful recipes. (Our local strawberries are at their peak right now and I can't wait to make the strawberry gazpacho that Pim learned from Manresa chef David Kinch.)
If you're one of the thousands of people who read her blog, Chez Pim, you already have a hint of how useful -- and how much fun --this book is. If you're not, you have a delightful surprise in store.

This book is more of a vanity project for Pim than a handbook for food lovers. Buy this only if you are more of a fan of Pim herself and like to look at many pictures of her and read her mundane advice, rather than a foodie in search of knowledge. I was very disappointed.

This is the first hook I ever returned. There are too many pictures of the authoer and not enough of food! Typical foodie advice is stuff like "10 things you must do ....... first buy the best ingredients ....

In my view a complete waste of time.
