Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Ash is a British artist who writes an occasional column on food and astrology for Gourmet . This eclectic collection of recipes is organized according to signs of the zodiac, representing the purported tastes of those born under each sign; introductory paragraphs on, for example, "Aries the Cook" and "Aries the Guest" precede each section. Regardless of their astrological significance, the recipes are a rather pedestrian assortment of standard French classics, the most familiar ethnic specialties, and some dishes that were once trendy and now seem merely passe.

Format: Hardcover
This recipe collection is organized by astrological sign using different elements,seasonings, and colors linked to attributes. Each section begins with a brief discussion of the particular sign and its tendencies as both a cook and guest, followed by suggested menu organization. The recipes are always prefaced by an entertaining description of the significance of the ingredients, such as "Semolina is milled from wheat, a cereal that belongs to the Earth Mother and Roman goddess Ceres, who represents Virgo...a sign concerned with the work necessary to produce the fruits of the earth." Ingredients and preparation steps are organized for ease and simplicity. This book is fun to read and the recipes are unusual consistently good. I looked for this author hoping she had written another one.
