There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
My main issue with the DVD was the lack of connection between the two hosts. Alka was very task oriented while Colleen let her passion for cooking really come through. From one cooking segment to the next, they also tended to repeat themselves about substitutions and little factoids.
However, I really liked this DVD, which had blurbs about misconceptions about vegetarian nutrition and alternative products. I'm going to try one of the recipes tonight, and I hope all goes well.
Great work, Colleen!
