Don't let the title fool you- The recipes are not at all diffucult to prepare, but the outcomes are by no means simple,nor do they look "fast". The photos that accompany the recipes are beautiful and highly motivating. I often purchase cook books of chefs of restaurants that I love, but this one caught my eye and I had to have it. I had planned on giving it as a gift and then 3 other friends got their hands on it and purchased more as gifts for friends who love to cook. I still love paging through and finding a new recipe to try. Most recently we had friends over to prepare the Nicoise salad ( must admit we have made it three times in a month! )The recipe works, tastes amazing, and looks almost as good as it does in the photograph. I will be soon buying another one of Hay's books!

I'm a loyal ...customer, but after seeing a copy of "Flavors" on a friend's coffee table, I had to have my own copy PRONTO. I went to a local bookstore and bought "New Food Fast" because "Flavors" was sold out. What a lucky break! "New Food Fast" is Fantastic. For the inexperienced cook and wannabe gourmet chef like myself, Donna provides easy to follow and short (whew!) recipes. In the past, I ordered take-out after a long work day - I didn't have the energy to fuss in the kitchen to make a decent meal. Donna's recipes are quick, the results are delicious and she's hit the mark with me -- I have definitely returned from the kitchen (and a healthier eating lifestyle) thanks to her genius. The recipes are easy to adapt and incorporate into a low-fat, low-carb diet. The photographs are coffee table book quality and invaluable to a novice cook (or any cook) who wants to know how the final meal should look. I'm addicted. I've given this cookbook to friends who have recently become mothers and don't have the time to cook. They love the book, too. I wish I hadn't bother investing in other cookbooks, there's no better series than Donna's in terms of taste, beauty, usability, results, and gift-giving appeal.

Format: Paperback
So many times in my life, I would leaf through beautiful cookbooks of exotic recipes. The dishes in the books would look so lovely, like works of art. Then I would scan the ingredients, and not know where in the WORLD to even BEGIN to find HALF of them! And I would read the instructions, and know that realistically speaking, I would probably never make that dish.
If I even TRIED, it would cost me an absolute fortune in driving around to locate everything, plus the cost of all those ingredients themselves, and then the presentation would be so difficult to do... I would eventually give up and just go to MacDonalds or pop some frozen food contraption into the microwave.
But then I found this book.
Donna Hay is a lifesaver. She has a beautiful photo for every dish. The presentation is always beautiful, but you dont have to be a culinary artist to achieve it! The ingredients are EASY to find, and the prep-time and cooking time is a snap. The dishes come out looking absolutely gorgeous, and they LOOK LIKE the complex dishes from the other cookbooks. The final result looks so exquisite, its like art on a plate. Since I got the book, my friends and family are constantly amazed. My dishes look like they are prepared by a gormet chef! I've had the book for one week, and have tried 5 dishes already. Each one was absolutely delicious. She knows how to balance flavors in such a way that they really explode together on your tongue. With every dish, I am completely amazed by the flavors that can come from such simple ingredients! And the truth of it is, I whip them out in no time flat! :) And Im no chef. (Well, maybe I am now!)

I read all the reviews on this book and I concur with them. I could have stopped and not write a review. But the book was so good that I had to put in my $.02. The book is targeted to who may not have enough time for those "fancy" recipes that takes a few hours to prepeare. this is a book for people on the go. It's for those people who want healthy, tasty, easy to prepare, and quick recipes. You can cook 2-3 of the items in a about an hour. The recipes are great for everyday dinners and lunches. the pictures motivate you too.
