MARVELLOUS BOOK This book is FANTASTIC. The best cookbook I have ever bought – and I’ve bought a few………Samin has a really accessible style of writing and you can’t help but like her as a person. I have enjoyed the stories she tells about her experiences and how she came up with this simple matrix for wonderful tasting food.And it certainly has revolutionised my cooking. What’s more, it’s a great diet book. “Hold on a minute”, I hear you cry. Let me explain. If you use this book, you might just find yourself enjoying your food so much that you’ll eat less. The more satisfaction you can get from one mouthful of food, the less you’ll need to eat. This is my own theory and it is working for me. Samin has improved the satisfaction I get from eating and I’ve lost nearly 2 kilos in a month. It’s true.But don’t buy it to lose weight, buy it to rediscover enjoyment in the food you cook and eat. It’s a terrific book. I would happily pay twice the price for it.

Patronising and pretentious I had great hopes for this book and generally love cooking and recipe books but this one leaves me cold.It does go into a lot of fairly tedious and obvious detail about the basics of using salt and which fats to use and which flavourings etc – all info that would be obvious from general knowledge or from just reading the recipe. Some recipes look interesting though and I will try them . It feels very geared to the US market too .not for me.
