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.
I would highly recommend this edition of Ina Garten's book. Her recipes are easy to follow with useful explanations at the back and superb pictures of each completed dish. I have gathered up many cookery books over the years and this one comes near the top of my list of favourites. Well worth buying and a pleasure to read.
