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'm very sorry to even have to write a negative review, but I was so disappointed by this cookbook that I actually returned it. So many recipes had weird, hard to find ingredients and the majority of the book is about their business. I should've believed the other reviews.
Very basic recipes some background on the people who work there. There are no secrets in fact many of the recipes were void of common additions in most upscale dishes like wine in pizza sauce or an extra source of egg an oil in cakes for moist crumb. Basic and boring nothing to recommend.
Reading cookbooks is one of my odd pastime joys. And, yes, I do make quite a few meals from them each week. Not many photos to go along with the recipes, so it was difficult to envision a full outcome. That being said, if you have an opportunity to visit Zingerman's in Ann Arbor, MI, do it! Food is great! The people are friendly.
