as it is cheaper and better than buying this book
on 14 March 2017
This book of "presenting secrets" is very outdated. I bought this book to help me with plating techniques, it is awful, many of the "secrets" were outdated in the 90's and unless you are looking for nostalgia or want to impress people who dined out in the 90's, I wouldn't buy this book. I mean it has Potato spirals in it! As a "presenting secret"..... please..... If you're a professional you would have covered all of this book in your first 6 months at college or in a kitchen. If you are a home cook looking to impress, google what you want, as it is cheaper and better than buying this book. If I could give zero stars I would.
Furthermore I can not find anything suggesting either Cara Hobday or Jo Denbury have ever set foot in a professional kitchen, so are completely inept when it comes to "Food presenting secrets" For shame on you both.... For shame.
In hindsight, I should have done more research on the authors of the book before buying it, I would be £13.48 better off if I had.
