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.
This is a nice book, an beautiful arty sort of cookbook...it would make a pleasing gift. It covers fruit in alphabetical order, with a pretty linocut print for each one, including one or two things I had never heard of before. It is a bit posh, but much more approachable than I expected .
Some stuff I will have a go at, especially a couple of ice creams: the recipes are very clear . Indeed, the last chapter is an excellent group of basic recipes with which you can make lots of the stuff in the book, including pâté sucrée, vanilla ice cream, shortbread and pastry cream.
Every single recipe is given in only USA measures, so my metric conversion app will be working overtime, but a set of USA measuring cups will help a lot.
The recipes I have picked out to tackle first include: Orange ice cream Raspberry ice cream Cranberry and walnut tart Pineapple upside down cake Raisin shortbread cookies Apricot tart with hazelnut pastry.
Nice, but nothing scarily exotic there.. But grapes roasted in a wood oven? Pistachio stuffed nectarines? Well, maybe not for me! But some of the more exotic ideas could be adapted.
If you have this book plus the Jane Grigson classic, you will never be stumped with what to do with any fruit that comes your way!
Oh, and it's very nearly vegetarian,but not entirely, just so you know.
