What we've made so far was tasty but way too time consuming to do on a week night. This book was definitely written for someone who is obsessed with cooking and loves to do it up in style. Spending two and three hours on a meal can be fun, but it's not something I want to do on a regular basis. On weekends that we get snowed in, it's been fun spending the time in the kitchen with my 12 year old daughter working on a recipe together.
Also, having tended towards a raw food diet, the vegetables in these meals seem awfully over cooked. Since it's winter, I wanted more ideas for cooked vegetables, but these recipes go overboard with many of the recipes having two parts - first cooked on the stove and then in the oven.
The index is awkard. For example, carrot cake would normally be under "C", then "Carrot", the "Cake". In this index, it's under "18-Carat" instead of "Cake" - I eventually found it, but not the day I needed it! Instead I walked away, scratching my head wondering why a carrot cake recipe would be missing.
My success with replicating recipes from her TV show is much better than my success with following the recipes in the book. I find the book useful to inspire new recipes, but don't feel I can fully trust them. My copy is full of notes of improvement. It's fun for me to treat it as my basis for a test kitchen, but I don't recommend it for novice cooks.
I came across this book in a Border's bookstore when I decided to go from vegetarian to vegan. I wasn't familiar with Christina or her show on PBS. What attracted me to her book is the introduction where she explains how her diet saved her life from cancer. It's a bold statement which I don't believe 100%. But solely changing your diet will help out if you have high cholesterol, diabetes, or heart disease. When I took the book home and thoroughly read the introduction, I was surprised when Christina readily admitted her vegan diet put her into another life-and-death situation.Read more ›
