by 5/9 (this was for Mothers Day and a gift from my 6 yr old Grandson to his Mom). It finally came on 5/27.
Sorry to give this bad response because you have been wonderful with everything else. You usually do such a very great
job. This was a third party thing and I was expecting your usual delivery time which is always ahead of schedule.
1) Every recipe includes a very high quality photo.
2) Every recipe has a 1 to 3 star rating indicating the difficulty and includes the preparation and total cooking time alone with the total servings.
3) It is very diverse in the recipe styles, from stir fry to southwest to Mediterranean and from soups to grilling to casseroles.
4) It offers a number of brief special feature sections: Seafood sauces, coating & batters, seafood platters, etc.
1) If you enjoy this cookbook as much as I do and begin to expand your "The Essential ... Cookbook" collection you will find that many of the recipes are repetitive. For example, The Essential Wok Cookbook and The Essential Seafood Cookbook have some of the same seafood stir fry recipes.
2) There is no nutritional information section.
3) In connection to my earlier comment # 3 in Pros, since it is so diverse, some of the recipes will clearly never make it into my kitchen. Anyone for Garfish with Rice Stuffing? (If you are even considering this, wait until you see the picture!)
I listed the Cons for informational purposes, but I clearly think they are dwarfed by the Pros that I have outlined above. FYI - The Chilli Crab and Tomato Dip on pg. 59 is a definite crowd pleaser!
It has all the basics such as how to buy, prepare, from soups to dips to pates to frying to poaching to casseroles to grilling. One can have specialty books on each of these, but here combined in very nice color layout with over 300 pages of wealth of seafood info. The glossary which has color photo os each variety is worth the purchase alone, but don't stop there.
Recipes range from standard fare which are valuable to have including multiple variations of each, e.g. New England Clam Chowder; However, there is even some knockout unique recipes here, e.g. Prawn Burgers with Cocktail Sauce; or "Salmon and Pasta Frittata'.
Other nice features of this are its excellent layout and photos, each recipe has difficulty rating as well as prep and total cooking time and serving listings.
The interested seafood beginner or lover will find much too delight one's tastebuds with in this excellent seafood compendium cookbook.
And at $20, makes a great gift!
