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.
Bought this book thinking it would have more of desserts but this one is loaded with more savoury items. Some of the desserts are a repeat from her How to be a domestic goddess. However all in all, it is a Nigella collectible.
It is OK, so 3 stars. I was a bit disappointed because the book shown has the dust jacket and the one I was sent did not have it. The write-up by the seller may have made this clear but if it did I missed it. The copy was obviously well used, which is good for a cook-book! SoI now have this excellent Nigella book at a very reasonable price and I don't need to worry too much if I spill something on it.
This is more than a sample, yet less than the full book which isn't available on Kindle. This "selection" says it iss 98 pages which doesn't mean much on a Kindle. It has a maximum location of 2476 compare with 143 in the sample of the selection. That said, if you like reading Nigella, this is a nice sampler with a few recipes for the Holidays. The table of contents is skimpy on the link, but its easy to search for anything on the Kindle (though I wish you could do it for only the current book) and you can add your own notes and bookmarks to mark specific recipes. A recipe list with links would be nice. But, for a cookbook, often it is key to see a picture of the finished result (in color is best) so you know what you are shooting for and that is lacking as you'd expect on the Kindle. For somethings, the grainy black and white images would do (like in the newspapers) or black line drawings (like comics) but for food you want color. Some day we may get that on a next gen Kindle. For now, this is an intriguing idea...was worth the low price.
