It's a pretty book to flip through. I'll try a few cheaper recipes and see how they are before I donate it. Maybe the recipes weren't tested thoroughly? I did find errors "kgs" instead of grams, thankfully a ridiculous amount so I knew it was wrong!! The author seems really nice so I feel bad, but the ingredients are way too pricey for recipes not to be foolproof.
This cookbook has a fair number of recipes that look good, but in practice too many of them don't turn out (for example, the breakfast bars tasted strange and didn't hold together--there are a lot of other "baking with beans" recipes online that are much better). Furthermore, there are just a touch too many "out there" and "trendy" ingredients for me. While I appreciate learning about new ingredients in cookbooks, the constant use of these non-traditional ingredients seemed a bit contrived to me in efforts to make the book sexier. So keep in mind that unless you are very into gourmet health food or have large disposable income, some recipes will need to be modified.
Overall, decent cookbook if you are willing to commit to some expensive ingredients, but absolutely beautiful execution. Many decent recipes but probably not a cookbook you will >50% of the recipes.
Well, for everyday cooking it is too complicated and time consuming. Cooking at home has to be your job (Sarah has such job!) or you have to be totally in love with food and cooking (as Sarah is). She suggests dishes for breakfast that take like 40 minutes to make! (mushroom tempeh breakfast bowl for example). There is no chance any person who works and needs to leave a couple of children in the kindergarten would manage it. I don't think it can work on Saturdays either. And I am not the one who likes to eat only simple and quickly cooked food, no. But the recipes in this book are unreasonable when it comes to time. The idea of using this book for cooking on special occasions doesn't work for me either. The food is not enough "festive" or special. Many recipes are healthy and satisfying but they are nothing I would invite guests for. Some dishes taste so so if you are not used to ingredients, some have not so much taste at all. Children would not eat the food in most of the cases (and my children love vegetarian food!). Then it is too few main dishes and too many snacks, desserts (mostly baked with flour and some sweetener like honey, maple sirap, coconut sugar etc). All in all I don't regret buying the book because as mentioned I want Sarah to keep going but I almost don't use this book for cooking (have done maybe 10 new recipes and was not impressed).
