A fabulous gift book, especially if you can give it along with a young fig tree! Perfect for a new home owner or newlywed!
If you are just buying some figs at the grocery store once in a while, this book will be adequate for you. But then, you could do an internet search and come up with at least the same amount of recipes--probably more actually...Then, when you consider the author includes loads of recipes for dried figs (really a different fruit entirely), then this book's value decreases even more.
If you have a fig tree or two, or three, like we do, you will probably be disappointed with the 70 recipes in this book, especially if you have been collecting fresh fig recipes for while and are looking for something refreshing, new and exciting. These are fairly average recipes, and 70 recipes is really not that many. I was hoping for inspiration and helpful tips and facts; I did not find any of that in this cook book.
The pictures are pretty, though. I'm sorry I spent money on this book. I should have borrowed it from the library first, then I would have known. But I got carried away and excited by all the baby figs on our trees. Anticipation did me in...
And, the price of a new book is quite steep for a small book with only 70 recipes. You might want to take a look at the used books, as they are going quite cheaply. You might also want to consider why there are so many used copies available for such a low price.....
And, yes, I'm seeing all these other reviews and a lot of five-star ratings. I am an experienced cook, with three fig trees, so I just can't get excited by this book. And, yes, I will go out on a limb and give this book an average, three-star rating!
We have a fig tree and I wasn't too sure what I would do with all of those figs, especially if I was the only one eating them. From super sweet to super savory this book has something for every palate. Easy, straight forward recipes. I highly recommend this book.
