I suppose my review will have to be taken with a pinch of salt. I confess to not having tried lots of recipes in Leila's book but the one I did try (the chocolate and olive biscotti) was the best biscotti recipe I've ever done. I have tried many other recipes where they either use too many eggs or the biscotti turn out incredibly hard and the dough heavy. However, Leila's proportions work like a charm. Being a translator myself, I admit to preferring the books in their original language (although the recipe I tried came from the English translation). However, I understand that not everybody can read Swedish so they will have to do with the English version. The reason I have not given the book more stars is because, as I said, I only tried one recipe. As the saying goes "traduttore, tradittore".
