About the Author

When most other girls were playing with their Barbie dolls or out climbing trees and getting their knees dirty, Donna Hay was in the kitchen, armed with a cookie cutter and ready to set upon every ingredient with a bottle of food colouring and a generous sprinkling of hundreds and thousands. It was experimental cooking at its best.

Over the years, Donna's interest in food and cooking grew and after some formal training, she began a career as a freelance food writer and stylist when she was 19. Donna was appointed food editor of leading Australian magazine Marie Claire and Marie Claire Lifestyle at the age of 25. While at Marie Claire, Donna wrote and styled four internationally bestselling books #150; Cooking, Dining, Flavours and Food Fast. The books received a number of the world's most prestigious food awards.

In 2001, Donna joined HarperCollins and released Off the Shelf: Cooking from the Pantry. Like all of Donna's other cookbooks it was a great success and can be found in hundreds of thousands of kitchens around Australia and the world.

Donna's recipes are renowned for their fresh modern flavours, stylish presentation, ease of preparation and readily available ingredients. Her relaxed approach to cooking inspire cooks of all levels of experience and her fresh, modern style has become a benchmark for contemporary cookbooks and recipe writing.

Her latest book, Modern Classics Book 1, is also destined to become a staple for every modern cook.

Donna's recipes and ideas can also be found in her magazine, Donna Hay, and in the Sunday editions of News Limited newspapers around Australia and in New Zealand.

My first Donna Hay cookbook was Modern Classics, which I love. My husband bought me Flavors for my birthday, and it is unlike any other cookbook I have. The set-up is genius. If I'm in the mood for something spicy, I turn to the pepper section. If I have leftover ginger, I go the the ginger section. It makes sense. AND IT'S EASY. The recipes are extremely user-friendly. The pictures are gorgeous. Hay uses ingredients you might not normally see together, yet they work. If you like to cook, this book might even spark your culinary imagination. I love it.

Flavors is definately the cookbook that gets the most use in my home. The beautiful photographs and simple ingredients make it easy to decide what recipies to try, and even the elegent-looking ones are usually easy to prepare. The way it's broken down into chapters by flavor (mint, chocolate, lemon/lime, etc.) also makes it a great resource when you have, say, a half bunch of leftover mint from a night of mojitos.

I absolutely love this cookbook. Every single recipe I have tried is delicious, and like the title indicates,

full of flavour. The chapters are organized by flavour, so that you can easily accommidate whatever you

crave. The recipes are quite diverse, so that you won't get bored. The photographs are beautiful and a good visual aide. You can plan a dinner party from this cookbook - appetizers, main course, sides, and dessert.

A friend of mine in NZ told me about this book. Usually one finds directions so convoluted in cookbooks, but these are very easy with easy ingredients and great pictures that the food actually looks like when you are finished. I also have both her Modern Classics books now and love her style. A great author to have in the kitchen.

Ever since I discovered Donna Hay's magazine (Issue 38), I've invested time in her website and researching which of her cookbooks I'm going to buy next. Flavors was my first.

I love how comparable this book is to her magazine. For each section, Donna Hay reviews first the different types of the product and secondly the different uses of the certain product which she titles "Good Ideas" (Good indeed!) before she supplies multiple, diverse recipes to choose from. The layout of the book is ingenious.

Donna Hay's recipes are simple yet stress good quality ingredients. They're not too detailed or complicated yet still gourmet and delicious.

I also really fancy this cookbook because of the photography. Being a photographer myself, I really appreciate the effort gone into producing such beautiful yet simple like the recipes photographs.

Having recently moved, I haven't had a lot of time to cook but when I have, I've devoted it to trying more recipes from this cookbook and I've not, so far, been disappointed. If you buy this book, I recommend the vanilla soaked fruits, vanilla milk gelato, chocolate truffle cakes and roasted vegetable salad with garlic dressing.

Once again, I've been satisfied by another Donna Hay product.

Not suprisingly, Donna Hay has done it again. Every one of her books is clear, concise, innovative, and very doable for all skill levels. This was my second purchase of the same book, to give to my 24yr.old son for christmas. It is excellent.

I absolutely love Donna Hay recipes and especially the food photography in her books. I do think that there could be some more vegetarian options, as 90% of this book is meaty for the entree-type recipes. This has incredible desserts, though!
