5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Cookery Book!, 3 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Jane Mason's 'All you knead is Bread' is a wonderful book, and an excellent resource for any kitchen bookshelf.

It's informative and interesting, with beautiful prose, excellent photographs, easy-to-follow recipes and interesting anecdotes of travel/bread customs from around the world (who knew that if you dropped bread in Armenia, you had to pick it up and place in a high place (tree etc) to show respect?)

The authors style makes it easy for beginners, as well as intermediate and advanced cooks.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully designed, excellent Japanese cookery book, 24 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Try them!

For beginners - I recommend starting with the following recipes

- Nasu dengaku (so good!)
- Spinach with Gomadare sesame sauce (friends will think you a genius)
- Miso marinade salmon (simple and delicious - remember to wipe the sauce off before putting in oven, or it'll burn)
- Ginger pork (the reason why so many japanese dishes are so good is the sugar...)
- Teriyaki chicken (homemade teriyaki sauce - make extra!)
- Gyuu donburi (comfort food)
- Seared tuna with ponzu sauce (expensive raw ingredient - but excellent)
- beef tataki with creamy sesame sauce (that sauce again!).

Happy Cooking!

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly readable, entertaining page-turner, 12 Sept. 2010
I just finished Lars Kroijer's Money Mavericks and i rate it 5 Stars

The tone is superb throughout: wonderful and self-deprecating. Gentle, humourous and simple (not simplistic).

The introduction (Background through to launch)was probably the best part of the book. His descriptions of his fund's investment strategy (market neutral trading) were enlightening. He drew interesting oonclusions about his experience and a novel thought about a potential new fund he might launch.

Only one comment for improvement: in the section where he gives us 5 questions he asks potential new analysts - he should have provided the answers in an appendix so we could test ourselves!

Overall; highly recommended for anyone interested in Danish people, start-ups,or an insider's view to the finance world.
