Exotic Recipe Collection
on 6 December 2001
Ainsley Harriot has written a rather entertaining book with many recipes. Some advice on barbecues in general is given although I found this part of the book rather light-weight.
The recipes are generally speaking rather interesting and tasty. There are few disappointments though, but not too many. However, many recipes call for exotic ingredients, some of which are hard or even impossible to find in many parts of the world. In some cases easily obtainable substitutes are suggested, but not systematically throughout the book which restricts the number of useful recipes to many.
This is not a book for a total barbecue novice. It is better suited for someone who knows the basics and needs new ideas and inspiration to create more interesting exotic barbecue delicacies.
