Format: Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
This is definitely a collection of recipes with a difference! Beautifully presented with lots of lovely pictures of the finished products, it really cannot fail to tempt you into the kitchen.

The book is very well organised - Quick and Chic which does exactly what it says, Slow Burners are those which take a little longer to cook and are much more substantial, Showing Off are dishes to impress friends and family, Classic Curries are, well, classic curries, Perfect Partner for excellent accompaniments to your main course and Sweet Like Candy - try Mango Brulee or Poached Pears with Saffron, Cinnamon and Star Anise. Wonderful!

All the recipes are well set out with clear and largely easily obtainable ingredients. These are separated into marinades (first and second for some recipes) and the main fish, meat or vegetable. The methods are clear with advice for garnishes. Where some dishes sound a little unlikely such as Baked Eggs on Banana Masala for example, the author offers assurance and encouragement to give it a go.

These recipes have something for everyone - chicken, lamb, beef, fish or vegetarian and whilst many are Indian dishes, the influence of French, Persian and even Afghan cuisine is present too in some of the recipes. There is even a section on drinks. The classic drinks are presented with many twists such as Minted Mango, Roast Fig or Strawberry and Cardamon. Get blending!

Recipes like Paupiette of Lemon Sole with Saffron Sauce and Fish in Coriander Chutney will definitely persuade me to eat more fish. I cannot overstate what an excellent collection of recipes this is. I was feeling more and more excited as I continued to look through and choose recipes. Give it a whirl!
