Definitely NOT the Best Ever Stiudent Cookbook.
on 26 December 2012
I bought this book and 'Nosh for Students', both were for my son who is 18 years old and at Uni.(Nosh for Students 5*, and Best Ever Student Cookbook -this one only 2* and that's for practical build of the book).
After browsing the Best Ever Student Cookbook I decided I would be too embarassed to give this to my son. It is aimed at either a six year old or someone who has been mollycoddled all their life. When one of the recipes is for a Hotdog you know something is wrong - here's a preciss: buy a sausage and grill it, buy a soft roll and slice it, put the sausage in the roll and add ketchup - Hotdog made. So if you think the recipient of this book needs such advice then I suggest you buy it and forever wonder how they got into Uni.
The book is in a practical ring binder layout that should give better protection than most in the kitchen. The recipes are very basic and there are no pictures to inspire the reader to try out anything a little more adventurous. Overall, definitely not the best ever student cookbook. It is being returned for a refund.
