There is a hyperlinked table of contents and it does interface with the Kindle for PC navigation menu.
Again, ingredient lists are numbered, which is not a good format. The inexperienced or inattentive cook may well misread the line "1. 2 tablespoons of olive oil."
The format is inconsistent - some recipes have standard units, some have both standard and metric, some have metric for liquid and tablespoon for other ingredients, and some have metric only.
Then I started seeing some of those translation/thesaurus clues that I've seen in other books lately:
spinach in microwave secure bowl
use report towels to get the spinach as dry as possible.
sodium and pepper to style
dried out basil
strong dish pie crusting
Sauté onion until delicate;
Fry for a couple of more minutes until they are searching golden.
The Tomato and Basil Quiche calls for "1 1/2 cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack parmesan dairy product" but the instructions refer only to parmesan. I've never seen a "Colby-Monterey Jack-parmesan blend."
The ingredients for the Double Crust Bean Pie had me giggling:
1 (15 ounce) can dark beans, exhausted
1 small inexperienced bell pepper, chopped
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar mozzarella cheese
The errors are clues that the recipes have been copied from other sources and words changed to make them "unique." Either the author does not understand the language well enough to see the problem, or the author does not care that the end result is of poor quality. Either way, I cannot recommend and would not trust the book at all.
