A fantastically diverse collection of appetising recipes - from simple to pulling out all the stops. And she writes like a dream; it feels like you're sitting down next to a dear friend, hearing about her life and travels. Lovely.Read moreLess
"This is a huge book. There must be literally thousands…"
This is a huge book. There must be literally thousands of recipes in here from all around the world. The recipes are arranged by food type (e.g. Grains, Beans, Rice, Vegetables). I've had it for at least 7 years, and have rather shamefully only made a handful of the recipes. The problem is that many if the recipes are quite time consuming, and are often not a meal in themselves. ie they look like they would be part of an Indian-style meal with lots of small dishes. However, the recipes that I have managed to make have been very tasty and nutritious.
The recipes also tend to have a long list ingredients, and I've been scuppered on many occasions by not being able to find some of the more exotic ingredients. However, if you've got a bit of time on your hands and some good delicatessens/Asian stores on your doorstep, this book may be for you.Read moreLess
