My partner was recently diagnosed with diabetes and i bought this book based on the recommendations here.
Whilst the book has interesting diabetes facts - the actual cook book section was not really any use to me - I was looking for recipes to help me cook for him.
He is a meat and two veg man, with nice and simple tastes. I only got one recipe out of the whole book that he would eat and therefore the book was of no use to me.
In my opinion the recipes are not basic or simple or something you would eat every day - which is what i was looking for.
I was looking for a dummy guide because i needed to know how to cook, what to cook etc, but it covered too much technical details of diabetes even though i bought books specifically for that.
More everyday recipes and less science
