Format: Hardcover
This beautifully produced book is filled with great full-page and some two-page food photos and many smaller snapshots. It claims to be cookbook for DIY cooks who like scratch cooking but basically it is an ordinary good cookbook with a huge variety of recipes having upscale, trendy, sometimes unheard-of ingredients. Some ordinary recipes combine unusual ingredient to create new flavors (tabouleh with fava beans and pomegranate). It is disappointing that many baking recipes use self-rising flour that true DIY would never touch. Most recipe ingredients are readily available but you likely to search a while before finding many (double-smoked chicken breasts, ash-covered goat cheese, taleggio). Recipes range from simple (almond-apple muffins,) to quite complex (Irish oyster soup with mussels and samphire).||The layout is well designed with recipes placed on single pages, many illustrated. They include preserving fruits, vegetables, making pickles and jams, smoking fish and meat, making cheeses and even three dog food recipes. Extensive menu suggestions for every occasion end the book. This cookbook is mostly for more adventurous cooks. A good subject index is missing; it has an index of dishes and an index of ingredients. If you want to find Muffins, e.g., it will take some looking.

This cookbook just got translated from the Dutch version which I coveted. I am thrilled that it's now available in the US. I LOVE this cookbook! Beautifully laid out, amazing recipes, gorgeous photos - just looking at it will make you drool. This is an AAA+!

I cannot rate this recipe book highly enough, I think it's just wonderful. The content ranges from dips and snacks to amazing looking desserts and even instructions on how to make jams, preserves and hand-made gnocci. The instructions are written in a way that variation on the recipes is encouraged, and some suggestions for these variations are presented. There is lovely commentary throughout the book, and the photographs and page layout are most aesthetically pleasing. I love looking through this book and picking out dishes to make, however often the recipes will require a specific shop as the ingredients may not be something you have in your cupboard on any given day. But regardless, there is nothing outrageous or overly expensive. This is a beautiful book and is a wealth of information on how to prepare things you would never think were able to do at home.

We really enjoyed this book! For me, it truly demystified the process of pickling, canning and preserve-making, with great step-by-step pictures (for those of us who did not have the rustic grandparent who did these sorts of things, and thus were terrified of poisoning the family with improper canning techniques).

I wouldn't say it's a book for beginning cooks - there is enough "judgment" in each of the recipes (in many she states "you may need a bit more of this, or that - depending on feel - and if, as an example, one has never made bread before, one won't know what "feel" of just-right, not too wet, not too dry bread dough means) that those with a bit of expertise can easily adapt and own.

I like also the lifestyle feel of this book - clearly it was a personal project for her, she has many stories and anecdotes that as fairly experienced cooks, my husband and I thoroughly-enjoyed.

No, it's not a "polished" read, but then again, given the title, it was never meant to be. But it does have great starter recipes broken down into easy pictures and steps, for a variety of foods (terrines, jams, ice cream) that heretofore in our family, at least, we used to buy already-made. A great, differentiated book for our kitchen library.

Format: Hardcover
I recently got this book as a Christmas present and although the photography and design is beautiful I'm a bit disappointed. I picked one of the easier recipes to make as my first dish. I believe there was a typo in the recipe for "Tasty mini muffins". The recipe calls for only "1/8 cups of self-rising flour" when it's supposed to yield 35 muffins! I used 1/8 cups and ended up with only 9 mini muffins that are soggy and eggy. I've been looking online for others that may have encountered the same problem but it seems that no one actually uses the recipes in this book...what's the point of a cookbook if you're not going to cook anything from it? Beautiful book--but it seems that might be all it offers.

This is my new favorite cookbook!

It's really written for people who love cooking from scratch, or people who are very into the new, "green, organic, foodie" movement that has been trending recently. The recipes all call for making everything from its most pure form. The pictures are lovely and easy to follow. They lend to the directions well. Many of the recipes are foreign ( to America) but the ingredients I have been able to find at my local specialty shops. That being said, this is a book for an adventurous, worldly eater- it is not at all your average American cookbook.

The book has two ribbon bookmarks in red and blue for easily saving recipes. I have read through te entire book and find now that I am just itching to get into the kitchen! The jams and marmalades are especially fun, as are the cocktails. The fresh bread section is also mouth watering. The teas section makes me long for a garden of roses and honeysuckle. This book really details how to make almost everything you could ever want to eat.

A great cookbook that can get you ready for this one is Homemade by Clodagh McKenna. It's slightly less adventurous and wonderfully delicious!
