I loved looking through the recipes and drooling over the beautifully done photographs. The recipes are easy to locate and have relatively easy to follow instructions but they are not for the novice in the kitchen. Most of the ingredients are easy to find if you live near a larger city. This would make a lovely addition to the bookshelf of someone who loves cooking. I received an evaluation copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest opinion and review. In no way has this influenced our opinion.
