I had heard very good things about this cookbook and I was not disappointed.

For one thing, it is a huge cookbook with the pages taken from the Donna Hay magazine. The photos are so beautiful that I kept this cookbook on my coffee table just to peruse it for awhile.

But in addition to the beautiful photographs, the recipes are clearly written and contain the fresh ingredients one would expect from Donna Hay. I had four or five marked to try on my first read through the book.

I will warn you that the original of this cookbook would be in metric since Donna Hay is an Australian magazine. My copy had the American version of recipes, which is good because I am terrible at math and making conversions.

This is a cookbook I've already come back to often.

This isn't a book for the shelf! This is a book for display ...Not only is it filled with DH's usual mouthwatering yet approachable recipes but the art direction and design of the book makes it so enjoyable to peruse, from the toothy paper stock that it is printed on, to the beautiful landscapes and lifestyle shots which pepper the pages between the effortlessly rustic styled food images.Donna has taken the best from her Mag, and separated them into the four seasons, then into sweet and savoury categories ... just divine.

This book is so lovely to look at. I love that it's organized by season, makes it easy to grocery shop or pick from your garden. The recipes are divinely simple, yet most of the recipes feature complex and fresh flavors. I've already tried the Paperbag Red Snapper with Preserved Lemon and the Chocolate Clafoutis--- both were delicious and so easy.

I have no idea who Donna Hay is, and frankly I didn't even remember adding this book to my Christmas list, but I'm glad I did. This cookbook is quite large, and features gorgeous photography of both recipes and scenery. The recipes are broken up by season, and then by savory or sweet. I love cooking seasonally, using what produce is available fresh to me, and so this book is perfect for that. I love cookbooks that have lots of photos (it makes a recipe that much more appealing when one can see the end product), and in that regard, Seasons does not disappoint. The beauty of this book, is that not only are the recipes drool-worthy, but the book itself is so gorgeous that it could be left out as a coffee table book. Definitely buy this book!

I have all of Donna Hay's cookbooks and this may be one of the only ones I have given less than a five star rating. I prefer some of her smaller editions since this is really more of a coffee table book than a usable cookbook. The binding is done poorly, just cglued on and after a few reads cracked and unfolded along the back which was disappointing. Fortunately I am a scrapbooker so I have plenty of sturdy glue and was able to fix it nicely.

The content is from her magazines (she is the Martha Stewart of Australia) which are gorgeous folios that i have seen before in Barnes & Noble. They are expensive magazines to purchase in the US but the production values are extraordinary. I love her aesthetic and I love her recipes.

I like cookbooks that are done seasonally. I usually will focs on the current season and get all I can from it before moving on. Since this is now Spring I have really enjoyed the recipes for the season. They epitomize a lovely spring. I did thumb through to winter which kind of different in Australia and the food is not much like food that we have in the US in the winter. That's ok though because I live in Florida and have two seasons here - hot and not-as-hot. My nothern friends might not find that chapter as useful since it recommends cookouts on the beach!

It is a beautiful cookbook with gorgeous photos of every recipe. It sets the bar very high (as do all her other cookbooks) and makes you hungry and want to get to cooking immediately. All the recipes are simple and delicious, you will usually not find anything too difficult in her books. I don;t do desserts but they look pretty easy to concoct as well.

The cookbook has two sections per each season, a savory and then a sweet. The sweet section is much smaller but stays true to the seasons.

I got a great deal on this cookbook but truthfully would have spent more for it and been quite satisfied.

I am a huge fan of Donna Hay. Besides owning most of her cookbooks, I also subscribe to her magazine and can say this is one of the best cookbooks from her. Unlike her previous cookbooks, this is more reflective of her magazine and features lifestyle photography as well beautiful photo of each recipe.

The book is divided into four seasons with savoury and sweet recipes for each season. Below are our favorite recipes from each season:

Spring: caprese salad, cheat’s ricotta gnocchi (one of the best gnocchi recipes), sweet honeyed ricotta with brioche, and berry pavlova.

Summer: pan-fried butter and thyme scallops, pancetta, fig and goat cheese tart, lemongrass and chili prawns, salt and pepper crab, lemony peach cake, and strawberry and ricotta tart.

Autumn: roasted pumpkin and garlic soup, garlic pizza, roasted vegetable salad, stewed apple and coconut cobbler, coffee and chocolate self-saucing pudding, and pumpkin pie.

Winter: garlic and parmesan bread, shellfish chowder, sage roasted pork belly, creme caramel, rhubarb dumplings, and caramel dumplings.

I love that the recipes are simple and ingredients are easy to find. When preparing for a party, we often pull this cookbook to put together our menu. We rarely give any cookbooks five stars, but as food bloggers and foodies, my husband and I both agree that this one of the best cookbooks out there.
