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 debated buying this book because I already own Melissa's first two books, Wed Fed and Well Fed 2, and thought there couldn't be much of a difference. I 'm so glad I did, however; the recipes here are varied and mouth-wateringly delicious. Plus, they're so quick and easy to prepare. My only bugbear is the quality of the binding. I had the same issue with her first two books, as well. I thought this would have been rectified by the third, but it actually fared worse, with pages becoming unglued from the spine in less than a week. Please Melissa, resolve this issue with your printers! I love these books and hope to keep them for many years!
As always, cracking recipes from Melissa Joulwan - she'd have had 5 stars with no issues. But, as may other reviewers have said, the book binding is shockingly bad, so rating has to reflect this. I hadn't experienced any issues with Well Fed 1 & 2 falling apart as so many other reviewers had, so was hoping this one would be ok too. However, I think the first loosening of the binding happened when I was half way through skimming the book for the first time; the whole thing came apart by the time I had cooked one recipe. A month or so in, I now have what is basically a loose-leaf folder...
Well, it doesn't get much better than this! I have used and loved the two previous WellFed books for the last few years and now to have an option that cuts down kitchen time for busy days is perfect! I love the easy to follow, delicious recipes that get me in and out of the kitchen, most of the time in less than an hour. During a Whole30 these books are my best friend with all of the compliant recipes. Aside from the recipes are tips and tricks that make cooking even more effortless. Love Melissa Joulwan's books!
Die Sammlung der Rezepte ist super, da habe ich beim Durchblättern schon viel gefunden das ich unbedingt nachkochen möchte. Was mich allerdings stört, ist, dass dieses Buch a) weniger übersichtlich ist als Well Fed 2, und b) die verwendete Schriftart einfach nicht gut leserlich ist. Warum man das vom Vorgänger nicht einfach übernommen hat ist mir ein Rätsel.
All of Melissa's books are great, this one is no exception. This book works with some meal templates then gives you tons of different ways to diversify them with simple adjustments to the ingredients. Tuna salad, 12 ways. Each look amazing. Simple, clean, incredibly tasty food.
Melissa Joulwan has hit it out of the ballpark yet again! I love this book SO much. Quick, easy recipes, super clear instructions, and delicious outcomes. You absolutely MUST try the curried-chicken-salad salad...I can't be the only one who becomes addicted to it! ;)
