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.
Its a thin book but I've found it very helpful when tackling xmas dinner by my self for the first time. The most helpful parts for me are the timings of what can be preped when. Theres also a good bit for notes in the back where I've written down the family xmas recipes that are passed down and in danger of getting lost on scraps of paper.
This is a really thin and cheap looking book indeed. And after the various "filler" items, there are precious few recipes in it at all. I am surprised Donna Hay has put her name to this opportunistic book, that is very much overpriced.
Wouldn't pay full price for this but I bought a used copy in excellent condition & I really enjoyed it. I love Christmas books, even buying & reading them in May! Has a good selection of ideas for wrapping, decorating & styling as well as good recipes for main meals, desserts & baking. It's a nice addition to have in my Christmas books
