HASH(0xa571dd50) out of 5 stars DVD makes this cookbook a whole new experience Nov. 28 2005
By AnnieGet YourGum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
First of all, I admit freely to being a bit behind the time when it comes to modern technology. So perhaps cookbook/DVD combinations are not all that uncommon, but until picking up this book up in a store recently I had never before seen anything like it.

Let me first say that the book itself is a real find, with stunning, high-quality photogaphy (my favorite feature of any cookbook). The recipes might seem a bit edgy at first glance, but I urge you to try them - so far, they are incredible (I'd heard about Jill Dupleix's cranberry blondie recipe from a friend who reads her column in the London Times, so I made them first. They tasted terrific, and made the whole house smell lovely!)

The DVD addition, however, makes this book an absolute must-have. It's like having your own personal TV cooking show right in your kitchen. Unlike TV, however, you can actually follow along with this program, since the disk can be paused, re-wound, fast-forwarded, skipped, searched, etc. And Jill Dupleix is delightful to watch. She's made sure to include lots of helpful cooking tips and techniques which can't really be conveyed any other way except by visual demonstration - how to thin-slice veggies, for example.

This was by far the best cookbook purchase I made this year. Get this set if you love watching cooking shows and want a new experience!

HASH(0xa5722d8c) out of 5 stars COOKDISC IS A MUST HAVE!!!!! March 24 2006
By JIL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I absolutely LOVE the cookdisc. It was easy to use, had really great recipes, and was totally user-friendly. I am not much of a chef, but people were all impressed by the meals Jill Duplex (the host) taught me to make. I found the dvd so helpful and the recipes are truly fabulous. A must have. Also makes a great gift for house warming or wedding registry!
