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’ve been to Back in the Day bakery and it was a delightful experience. I bought this cookbook as a sequel to their original cookbook. I’ve been baking for many, many years and am relatively successful with most recipes. With the recipes from both of these cookbooks I’m good about 50% of the time. Don’t think it’s user error because I follow it verbatim. That all being said, they’re beautiful on their artistic merits and makes a good addition to my cookbook collection.
