Best Cookbooks of 2015, Globe and Mail, Huffington Post, Leite's Culinaria
"This crackling debut effort by the popular recipe blogger and Globe columnist is one of the first Canadian cookbooks to convincingly capture the openness and internationalism of how so many of us eat...A thrill to cook from and to read."
—Globe and Mail
“Tara O’Brady is a ship captain’s daughter of Indian descent living in Ontario, Canada. All of which informs her perspective in this beautiful and substantial debut cookbook. She navigates seamlessly across culinary boundaries to share her stories, recipes, and traditions—the sort, I suspect, that will be welcomed into many, many kitchens.”
—Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Every Day
“This book, just like Tara’s blog, shares recipes and stories that are filled with texture, warmth, and her Indian heritage. Tara’s cooking is thoughtful, clean, and full of aroma and flavor. Her recipe for Baked Eggs, North Indian–Style, served with an extraordinary topping of Fresh Green Chutney, has become a staple for my family—and it will for yours, too.”
—Aran Goyoaga, author of Small Plates and Sweet Treats
“Seven Spoons is so gorgeous and beautifully photographed that I just want to jump right into the pages. I can’t wait to savor these amazing dishes, all with a global bent, starting with breakfast biscuits and spicy, fried Mexican Huevos a la Plaza de Mercado; then moving on to soups and salads with flavors culled from the Middle East and East Asia; then ending with lush, compelling desserts.”
—David Lebovitz, author of My Paris Kitchen
“Tara’s warmth and love of cooking comes through on every page. She will inspire new cooks to enter the kitchen, and energize those of us who have been cooking for years.”
—Bonnie Stern, author of Friday Night Dinners
“Tara O’Brady could write a book about re-grouting bathroom tile, and I would still want to read it. Told with warmth and grace, Seven Spoons is the story of one very real home kitchen—and the beautiful food that it yields. From Feel-Better Curried Soup with Crispy Chicken to Roasted Peaches with Glazed Sesame Oats and A Burger Treated Like a Steak (bathed in miso butter!), O’Brady’s recipes are exactly what I want to cook and eat: inviting, reassuring, and above all, inspiring. Seven Spoons is a keeper.”
—Molly Wizenberg, author of Delancey
"It's not just that the recipes are unique, but she writes head notes and directions more beautifully and thorough than any I've seen."
—Sara Forte, author of The Sprouted Kitchen
"What [is] most extraordinary, though, was how fluidly she [moves] between culinary cultures; if a cuisine is a language, she [speaks] a dozen of them, nailing their grammar, vocabulary, idioms and syntax. Seven Spoons is superb and stirring…one of the first cookbooks I know that convincingly captures the openness and internationalism of how so many Canadians eat today."
—Chris Nutall-Smith, Globe and Mail
"O’Brady has a knack for making her recipes seem completely familiar while imparting a unique twist to each… Seven Spoons [is] one of our favorite cookbooks of the year.
"A collection of every day recipes with just a little bit extra."
"Seven Spoons is teeming with just the kind of inspiration we all need ... The recipes are inspiring in a very specific, homespun way, clearly the product of years of honed repetition at a family table."
—Deb Perelman, Smitten Kitchen
"After a decade of developing her culinary skills, expanding her family’s palate, and documenting the results in a tone both ebullient and educational, Seven Spoons reads like a best friend’s kitchen diary.”
—Yahoo Food (cookbook of the week)

Beautiful photographs for many of the recipes
Some tasty sounding recipes
The recipes are not replicas from her blog
Kindle version well presented
Not a lot of recipes that grabbed me (too much Indian / middle eastern influence for my personal taste, and my pantry is not well-stocked for those cuisines)
Flowery writing that is more poetry than cookbook (Which may appeal to some)
Her style of recipes are available for free on her blog
I did bookmark 5-6 recipes I'd like to try, but I'm not sure the book is worth keeping for that.
