To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My daughter is a collector of anything Martha S, when I saw this edition I bought it immediately. She is thrilled. It is vintage Martha, a treasured edition to her collection if cookbooks. I was concerned it would not arrive for Christmas but Amazon.ca had it on my doorstep in plenty if time and in perfect condition.
I knew I was buying a used book, but it was advertised as being in much better condition than it actually was. The issue was the top side of the book. It was brown and dusty/moldy in appearance, and up close it smelled moldy. I had to return this and buy the same book from another seller.
There is everything to like about this cookbook. Well researched, excellently written and edited. All recipes are kitchen-tested, proofed and designed for a successful outcome. Martha Stewart is a meticulous and creative perfectionist in the recipes she chooses to publish. Not only are her cookbooks keepsakes but I think most are well on their way to become international classics.
