I love to read cookbooks. The photographs and chatty intros are important to me but most important is do the recipes really work. Are they tasty? Does the finished product look like the photos? So many reviewers focus on format and give a detailed description of the table of contents but do not appear to actually have made any of the recipes. Some reviewers state they have made a number of the recipes but after a lengthy glowing review of the cookbook devote only one sentence to the actual recipes. Now I myself have any number of cookbooks I have bought only to never try any of the recipes but when I read a review of a cookbook I want to know what recipes the reviewers have actually prepared from the book.
Thanks then to those reviewers who list the recipes they have tried successfully or not (also important to know) and to the rest please include whether you have made any of the recipes or are reviewing the cookbook more as a coffee table book for the pleasure gained from viewing the photographs.
