I've not read the whole cookbook but in my brief skim, there were a few errors that I find unforgivable in a cookbook. I only left 3 stars because I wanted to give the author the benefit of the doubt that the errors only existed on the one recipe that caught my eye (cape may clam chowder). In the ingredients list for the recipe, it calls for "two bottles" Two bottles of what? My guess would have been clam juice but if I am correct then she also missed the method step where they were added in. On this same recipe, the method calls for you to add the scallops to the dish. Sort of odd for a clam chowder recipe but even odder that the ingredients list does not call for scallops. So, what is correct?
The homemade hot fudge sauce looks pretty good and I plan on trying it. I will re-edit this review if I find that the book was better (or worse) than I originally thought.
