5.0 out of 5 stars My New Favourite Cookbook Dec 31 2011
I love this cookbook! Every recipe I've made so far has turned out beautifully. I feel like I'm spoiling myself eating such wonderful food, but its all very healthy and nutritious. The flavour combinations are interesting yet well-balanced. I especially appreciate the comments and suggestions from the authors included with each recipe.

My favourites include:
* Stracciatella
* Grilled Pancetta-wrapped Shrimp with Meyer Lemon Relish
* Middle Eastern Carrots
* Chicken with Apples and Prunes
* Buffalo Salisbury Steak
* Fried Shallots
* Baked Apple with Oatmeal Crunch.

I feel like this cookbook has really helped to make me a better cook. I bought it hoping to find some great recipes for one, without having to eat leftovers for a week, or get out a calculator and try to figure out how to decrease a recipe so that it only makes one or two servings. It's a little ironic that I am still doing the math, only now I'm doubling recipes so that I can serve these fabulous meals to family and friends.

I hope these two are already working on their next cookbook!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very practical. April 28 2014
By Franmar
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It seems that many of the recipes are scaled down from larger quantities and call for items which cannot be bought in in the amounts called for, such as 1/2 a leek, with no suggestion as to what to do with the other half. Similarly, one recipe calls for a teaspoon of chutney with no other reference to chutney. Tiny quantities of other ingredients in 1/4 tsp. and similar amounts are impractical.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good sample of recipes May 2 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you want to make yourself a good dinner but not eat it for the rest of the week, this is a good book to have. I like that it is per season and what is available then.
