However, there is more to putting out a good recipe book than tasty recipes. Organization is important in order to produce a book that is easy to use. There is NO list of recipes in the table of contents, and NO index of recipe titles or of ingredients. This means you have to page through the entire recipe section to find 'Guacamole soup' or 'Summertime Corn Bisque'. There is simply no way to find recipes other than flipping through the book--the recipes aren't even in alphabetical order by title within the recipe section, either. There appears to be no discernible organization of these recipes within the book. The lack of an ingredients index means that you can't look up an ingredient and find all the recipes that contain that ingredient. These are *major* organizational flaws in a recipe book.
There also isn't clear delineation between recipes. That is, the recipes run together, rather than each recipe beginning at the top of a separate page. This bugs me, but not nearly as much as no index.
I have two of Kristen's books, and each one has the same first chapter, which is redundant. The other book also lacks an index or list of recipes in the table of contents.
If Kristen ever revises this book and the others in the series, I strongly advise the addition of an index, or at the very least a listing of the title of each recipe in the table of contents. The latter suggestion would not add to the cost of producing the books and would make them far easier to use than they are now.
Kristen "gets it" that it aids a dietary regimen if the food looks appealing, meal after meal.
This book is brief, has some tasty recipes and some simple but very helpful hints.
She suggests the kitchen equipment needed to create these dishes, tips on soaking and dehydrating nuts and seeds,compares sweeteners,clarifies basic measurement conversions, instructs the reader on making nut/seed milks,raw mustard and raw mayonnaise to name a few...I love her Pecan Bisque and her Thai soup...yuuuuummm.
Treat yourself and try some of these nourishing and raw delights that makes "uncooking" manageable and fun! I think I counted 42 soup recipes...which should be plenty for anyone's palate...
Just a great little book to keep.
The cons :
NO index, so specific recipes are difficult to find.
The same first 10 pages or so are contained in each of her books, so you pay for that over and over again if you buy more than one.
Not sure if the cost-vs-benefit ratio is good. IMO, ALL her books could have been condensed into one--WITH an index!--for half the price or less than all of her books purchased separately.
That was then. Now, I've found the secret. This books is packed with delicious recipes for raw soups...and they DO NOT all taste the same. There are so many wonderful taste experiences included, it's hard to pick a favorite. And, as an added plus, they are all very easy to make.
