This is the second Tessa Kiros book I own. My first was Falling Cloudberries which I really enjoyed. I just can't bring myself to like this book. It's organised according to food 'colour' which I just can't abide by. I also find the writing to be a bit over the top and gushy. I liked the 'backstory' to recipes in Falling Cloudberries but I just find myself completely disinterested with the stories in this book. In fact I'm pretty disinterested in the recipes in this book too. There are a few simple and tasty dishes but overall it's nothing special. The book itself is lovely to look at - wonderful photography, thick glossy paper and lovely design but the content itself is just... well... blah. Perhaps it lacks even a subtle theme that means the recipes aren't particularly cohesive? I'm not sure but I'm not a fan... The only thing I'd miss is the light and simple pancake recipe if this suddenly disappeared of my bookshelf.
