A word about book reviews. Cookbooks are written by real people with real feelings who sweated blood to get their books written, tested and published. I hate to say negative things about someone's work, but I also dislike leading people astray as to whether they might like a book or not. It's a dilemma. Occasionally I decline to review a book that I really dislike, but usually there's something good that can be said about a book even if I personally wouldn't buy it. In my reviews I try to highlight the things I find most successful, while at the same time describing the book in a way that will give the reader insight into whether or not this would be a cookbook he or she might enjoy. Even if the book isn't my cup of tea, it may be perfect for someone else. No judgement here about whether your meal should be fat-free or fat-rich, filled with meat substitutes or focused on creative vegetable dishes, mild or spicy. That's for you to decide.
