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.
Some really good recipes but they sometimes miss out when to add certain ingredients. For example they tell you to chop up x vegetable and then never mention it again. It feels like this book was written in a bit of a rush and wasn’t properly proof read. Still, the recipes themselves are great!
Some clever and interesting recipes in this, but you need to have deep pockets to keep buying all the ingredients they use. Like any book you will pick and choose your recipes and find one that is amazing and another make you wonder how it ever made it into the book. The thing that really frustrates me though about this book is the way it’s written. The methods are often written so badly it’s imperative you read the method twice or you will make a mistake because it jumps forwards and backwards all the time, the methods aren’t consistent either, sometimes the ingredients list is split other times it isn’t eg 3tblspns of coconut oil is listed for the dressing, the method says add half the coconut oil and save the rest for something else, wtf, so it’s not 3tblsps then?. Time planning is poor with seemingly no concept of critical path, eg starry doing X first because it take 35mins to bake and do y&z whilst it bakes would seem logical, but that doesn’t always happen in this book. Finally, the indexing is a total car crash with regular frustrations about where the recipe is; fancy that Really nice curry again? Good luck finding it because it won’t be under curry, it will be under a scrummy wummy or something else unrelated.
