It's very pretty with lots of pictures and high quality paper, but that's about it for the "pros". As for the "cons":
1) A lot of typos and errors. Lately, I've been encountering this a lot with books, and it's unbelievably irritating! I could understand a couple of typos (although, in a published book, there shouldn't be any), but this book had more than a couple. How hard is it to get a couple of people to carefully read your book before you start selling it? One example, that is fresh in my head - one of the recipes says "1 corn kernel". I'm assuming it's 1 cup, but who knows?
It seems like some recipes that she meant to include have been omitted. There's a section with suggestions for filling ingredients for sushi that mentions some recipes that are nowhere in the book. Either they've been erroneously omitted, or why would you mention a recipe and then not include it in the book? Very frustrating!
2) The book calls for a lot of uncommon ingredients. There are similar recipes in other cookbooks (or online) without these, so apparently they're not even necessary in most cases.
Firstly, I think that discourages beginners from trying these recipes.
Secondly, it may not be a problem for those who are lucky to live close to a specialty store, but most people have to order them online. These ingredients are expensive (especially when you add in the shipping), and seeing how even the basic raw diet is pretty expensive, I haven't tried as many recipes from this book as I would've liked to, because of the cost of the ingredients.
3) Some recipes I've tried from this book are just not good. (And I've never been a picky eater.Read more ›
