really liked it
bookshelves: 2010, food-drink

Let's be honest: I'm not a foodie, I can't tell one seasoning from another, and I can't cook to save my life. (Seriously. Without the microwave and my basic pasta-boiling skills, I would starve.) Yet even I recognize this book is a (almost) definitive guide to nothing but the author's own culinary likes and dislikes...which is fine by me. Included are some really intriguing (and relatively simple) recipes that I've marked to try when I'm feeling particularly daring (or like burning the house down), and it was perfect for what I bought it for in the first place. I'm guessing if you're a foodie or at all advanced in the eating/cooking arts, you will want to look elsewhere. But if you're a kitchen idiot like me? This book is just fine.

Also? Pretty, pretty food, I mean, pictures!
