There are charts in front and back with equivalent measures. There is a section of recipe choices with the pictures of the dishes and pages they are located on, they are also pictured again on the recipe page. Preparation and cooking times are given. Everything is simplified. Some of our family favorites have been; Cold chicken and ham pie, Fisherman's pie, Steak and wild mushroom pie, Rhubarb and strawberry tart.
I do question the statement that you can use canned crab and have your crab cakes come out the same as using fresh crab - that just does not work.
Recipes include; starters and light bites, salads, meat free, one-pot dishes, home from work, food to share, comfort food, bread, pies, tarts and cakes, desserts.
This would be ideal for someone learning to cook and those not too sure of preparing more than the ordinary dishes, of which there are many in here, such as: spinach-stuffed veal, bouillabaisse, Saltimbocca of salmon, Lamb chops chapvallion, chicken and prawn laksa. There are many dishes that are different made easy to prepare and would give a cook the confidence to attempt them.
This book is gigantic with a ton of recipes that will help you expand your repertoire of meals for your family! The table of contents will allow you to go directly to a specific section of the book - Starters and light bites, salads, meat free, one-pot dishes, home from work, food to share, comfort food, bread, pies/tarts/cakes, spectacular desserts. There is something for every kind of meal you might want to try during 2013.
As I mentioned above, it didn't take me long to find a recipe to try out. So one afternoon I proceeded to make the French beef and herb potato pie. It took me a bit longer than the 45-50 minutes of preparation because I decided to do one step at a time. Besides, I have decided to prepare the meal in advance and put in the over about 50 minutes before supper time.Read more ›
