Top critical review
Not so simple
11 October 2018
I don’t normally write reviews but felt I had to in this case. I have purchased Otto Lemghi cookbooks before and the recipes taste fantastic but have lots of ingredients and require a ridiculous amount of chopping etc. Hence when I saw ‘Simple’ I thought ‘fanstistic! Great recipes without all the faff’. Unfortunately I was wrong. The recipes I have made so far require a lot of prep, e.g chopping 30-50g each of 3-4 different herbs which involves picking off the leaves from the stalks etc. Which unfortunately takes ages!
So the recipes taste good but the simple title does not mean quick!
