It's ridiculous how many times I have used this book. It is easily the most-used recipe book in our house. You do have to watch out for the lashings of whipping cream, though. Some of the recipes are delicious but will kill you if you eat them too often! Experienced cooks will be able to work around the excessive calories.

The other complaint is that many ingredients are hard to find. That is true - I scratch my head over the amount of recipes that call for kaffir lime leaves or ketsap manis. I live in a big city that's very multicultural, so I don't really have a problem finding stuff. Most of the exotic ingredients are either garnishes or can be substituted without damaging the original intent.
