Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Unfortunately there was not one recipe I was able to make. ALL recipes had truly ODD ingredients in it. I'm a former chef so I familiar with many obscure ingredients but this was like a google fest of obscure ingredients and then where do you find them once you figure out what it is. If I could return it I would -- useless!!!
