Only saw one episode of the series and decided I'd love to try the recipes. After trying one of the chocolate deserts I know I am in very great danger of getting extremely fat. (Will have to have salad in between to make sure that doesn't happen.) Easy to follow and beautifully illustrated it is a book you can look at even if you aren't in the mood for cooking.....although your mouth will soon be watering. I actually bought it after having glanced through a friend's copy and am glad I did.
