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.
Such a great cookbook. The recipes I've tried so far are delicious and also not too complicated with easy to get ingredients. I've got a few of the BOSH books now, they're always filled with inspiring meals
This book has a great layout, with the ingredients, instructions and descriptions all very distinct and easy to distinguish. Virtually every recipe, apart from the most simple ones, has a photograph, occasionally even stretching to two pages. In some books it can seem that there are too many photographs just to fill space, but this one seems to have the balance just about right.
I have bought a number of vegetarian/vegan and healthy eating cookbooks over the years and I appreciate that it must be difficult to come up with 140 interesting and unusual recipes. Therefore you can get some ultra simple 'filler' recipes which are available everywhere. This book has some of these, but not too many and there are enough creative recipes to certainly make the book worthwhile. I certainly hadn't ever seen or considered making a mezze cake for example. This recipe is available online as a video, like some of the others apparently, which is a nice touch but might put people off buying the book.
From my personal point of view, I'm not sure why there is a small chapter on cocktails and as someone who does not like mushrooms at all, a lot of recipes do feature them. That's just my personal preference, particularly as non-cocktail drinker and mushroom avoider, but I'm sure some people will appreciate those things more than me.
This book is certainly more impressive than a lot of other similar ones I've come across in the past, so I would suggest that most people could learn some interesting new recipes by buying it.
You can look inside the book and see some of these details, but for completeness the contents page looks like this:
