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 Uncle decided recently, he’d like to learn to cook. Good for him! Nothing strange about that I hear you say, what may surprise you is that he’s seventy one years old, and has always lived alone. I bought the book for him as I know he’s a fan of the show, especially James Martin. As he puts it, it’s not a froo-froo cooking show, and many dishes appeal to his palate.
The book is well written with lots of interesting recipies, however some of the ingredients are hard to get and expensive. In all if you wish to learn new techniques it's great but it is out of reach for the average cook/chef.
Wasn't sure what to expect but this is a useful book and I refer to it often, there is a list with suggested places you can get some of the more obscure items and some suggestions for seasonal produce, the recipes are from many chefs and I was concerned they may be a bit complicated but overall there is a mixture of recipe types and styles from different cuisines so a useful book, one to sit and read and pick out a few to try!
