Pleasant enough but too exotic for me
on 17 January 2011
This is a very pleasant book visually. It's got lots of photographs in it (matt, not glossy) which are lovely to look at. This is a memoir/travel book, with recipes and food memories thrown in. I have to say that it was all a little bit too exotic for me and I wasn't as interested in her travel experiences as I may have been in somebody else's. Also, the recipes were for nothing that I would ever want to cook (with the exception of shepherd's pie and a couple of the cakes/desserts).
This is a nice book but not for me personally.
