The pages for recording your recipes have limited space for writing, you'll need write carefully and small to fit most recipes on a page. The pages are not removable and pages cannot be added or moved around. The print in the book (charts, tables, etc.) is nearly microscopic. I found it very hard to read anything in the journal. As well the current and recent prices listed here on Amazon make this a very expensive and hard to justify choice.
The pages in the recipe journal give you enough room to record a standard recipe if you don't mind keeping your handwriting pretty small. I had to shrink mine a bit after a few of my longer recipes had ingredients squeezed into the margins. I found the space for rating the recipes - 0 to 5 stars - a little unnecessary. If I think a recipe is worth anything BUT 5 stars, I'm not wasting any Moleskine pages on it at all.
Loved the blank tabbed pages in the back and the adjoining stickers - there are LOTS to choose from - that let you create your own sections. However, the actual layout of those pages isn't really conducive to writing more recipes. You get a page split up into smaller sections horizontally and none of the nifty layout from the pre-labeled recipe sections.
I should also mention that the wine pairing space provided didn't get much use. I actually took it upon myself to LOOK UP wine pairings for some of my favorite recipes though, and to that end at least I've been prompted to learn something about wine/food.
All in all, this is a great companion for any foodie who has an appreciation for Moleskine's craftsmanship. If you ask me, sure beats having a tin full of index cards or a box full of clipped recipes.
Assuming I eventually fill up my recipe journal - I've just begun - I would definitely buy another one. Lets me take ownership of recipes and add my own variations.
Each page in that section is printed with the recipe journal template that divides the page into pre-labeled sections. About 1/3 of each page is taken up with sections to note difficulty, servings , preparation time, cooking time, cooking process, wine parings, notes, and 1 to 5 star rating. I would prefer not to have that space on each page dedicated so I would have the flexibility to include only the information I feel is necessary and have that extra space to record the recipe or notes. The note section is 1" x 1 1/2", too small to be practical and I don't need a dedicated section to record whether the recipe is prepared in an oven, microwave, or stovetop.
The cocktail section has a different template and includes sections for alcohol content, servings, ideal occasion,tools, suggested glass, decoration, rating and notes.
If you are not able to print neatly in a very small font, 8 -10 point you would have a hard time using this journal. The small journal size will also limit the length of the recipes you could include.
The six tabbed sections that are unmarked also can record 16 recipes but those pages do not use the recipe journal format the pages are divided horizontally into 5 equal sections.
Inside the back cover is a two pocket accordion file where you will find some pages of stickers. Two pages of them have stickers intended to use to identify the unmarked tabs or you could use them to reassign the pre-marked sections. The two other pages one red one grey include stickers like love this!, hate this!, great tip!Read more ›
