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.
I was so excited to read through this cookbook! It's beautifully written, and the recipes and pictures look amazing! Unfortunately, none of the recipes I've tried so far have turned out that good. (And I'd like to think I'm a decent cook.) The apple cake was too oily. The corn bread was too salty. The buttermilk dressing was shockingly bland, and never came together - it was simultaneously watery and chunky (and looked a lot like baby spit up, no matter how long I had it in the food processor.) The chili bourbon salmon had a good flavor, but broiling it made all the excess paste burn and set off the smoke alarms (when the salmon was only half way done).
I'll keep trying different recipes, and update my review if needed.
