2.0 out of 5 stars Small book, overpriced, poor content, 7 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Low-carb & Gluten-free Vegetarian: Simple, Delicious Recipes for a Low-carb and Gluten-free Lifestyle (Hardcover)
I bought this cookbook thinking that could offer me something new in low-carb & Gluten-free food. Unfortunately there is nothing in this book that I don't know. The Idea and the approach is good if you are just getting into it. Not every recipe have a picture and the portions are starter size. Some of them are so simple to make you will be telling yourself 'I am doing this already anyway' such as 'baby courgettes with mint and vinegar', 'Mexican Cucumbers' just thinly cut cucumbers and paprika and lime juice on top. If it was my cookbook I wouldn't never put that on.. 'Japanese omelette' Eggs, shiitake mushrooms (any firm mushrooms will do) and soya sauce.. 'Halloumi stuffed red peppers'. Halloumi pieces inside red peppers and roasted. The list goes on and it feels like a joke. Also if, you are expecting a big size chunky book you are very mistaking. There are dimensions given of course but the picture is very misleading so I didn't bother the check the dimensions. Don't do the same mistake. It is a small 20.5 x 20.5 cm (approx) and thin little book. For the size and the content I think it is very over priced.

Thank you for your opinion, I've come across quite a few of these useless "recipe"books on Amazon and I wish I had your courage to express my disappointment..
