Everything has step-by-step photos; including an overhead shot of what all of the ingredients look like laid out on a counter. Some deep-seeded OCD side of me loves this, but moreover it gives you a good "scale" of what you'll need for the recipe, and what to look for in the store.
Must-buy for food lovers.
Yes, I think this is a fair statement. I chose this cookbook becasue the title was simple- Fresh and Easy....The book is beautiful and hosts a variety of recipies that will help you to figure out what to do with all of those veggies you picked up at the farmers market.
For a girl who takes directions too literally- this book has lots of pictures-so I can ensure that I am really doing it right.
I consider myself a pretty decent and experienced cook and a fan of clean eating only using fresh ingredients and herbs from my garden, avoiding where possible anything that is processed and full of preservatives and chemicals. This book is pretty much uses the same principles. The instructions and excellent pictures are really easy to follow and accommodates for a novice to an experienced cook whith pleanty of great tips or alternative ingredient ideas.
My wife brought it for me as a present to add to my collection and has become my new favourite. I've cooked about a dozen recipes over the last few weeks since getting it and everyone of them has been a knockout with great fresh flavours. In parts, it reminds me of Jamie Oliver 'style' cooking so if you like his food I'm sure you'll love this too. You can tell which of my cook books I really like and use alot by the amount of (accidental) food and drink stains there are on the pages and this rookie in a short time fame this has quickly suffered a few battle scars and proudly sits along side my favourite, well used and trusted cook books. Right now I'm just loving the fresh flavour and texture in the dishes tried so far and also has given me lots of inspirational ideas to try out later.
I've recently ordered a second copy to give to my dad, who could just about burn water, and who has stated for ages now that he wants to get into cooking and I believe this a perfect starting point for him.Read more ›
TOTALLY LOVE THIS BOOK. So much so that I ordered both What to Bake, and the original What to Cook. I can't wait for them to arrive.
