Great recipes.. if you can read them!
on July 9, 2011
I bought this last week, and will definitely enjoy working my way through the recipes - lots of enticing possibilities here. But I have one HUGE gripe.. and the reason I only give it 3 stars... the type-face. The 'kitchen tips' for each recipe are in a dark gray type on an off-white background page in a font that is fairly easy to read. The actual recipe instructions however are in a lighter gray and a fairly 'spindly' font that doesn't stand out from the page that well, and the ingredient lists are a light blue/green color.. not great contrast, and not easily seen by those of us with older eyes. NOT ALL READERS ARE UNDER 45!! The prep time and serving info is the same light blue/green color, though here the font used is smaller and lighter still. Now all of this can be solved with good lighting and a pair of 'cheaters' (or a magnifier as the case may be), but while it may be attractive on the page it's not at all convenient to anyone with older eyes. Very poor choice for an otherwise promising cookbook.
