The book is nicely divided into chapters according to the time it takes to cook a particular recipe, which is very very useful. The recipes are all quite clear and simple to follow, many of them using ingredients one has around the house anyway.
I would have given it 5 stars but the I think the photography, as arty as it is, is somewhat over the top. It's great to have nice pics, but they should 'tell' you more of the end product (ie. like in Jamie Olivers' books).
The recipes I tried turned out great, easy to do - even if they didn't look as flash as on the photos, but, they tasted great. It's a really nice, uncomplicated book to have close at hand on the kitchen book shelf.
