The book is well laid out with a informative section at the front, followed by a few pages on specific foods used in the cookbook - such as the spices, vegetables and fruit.
The book also has recipes of each completed dish which is very helpful, as well as a few pictures covering different stages of the preparation or cooking process for the recipes.
However, I specifically choose this book as the write up about it insinuated that it was very DIY in regards to learning how to make your own curries from scratch, including the curry pastes. Unfortunately a lot of the recipes call for different flavoured curry pastes that the cookbook does not cover how to make.
It would also be helpful if the cookbook had a 'hotness or spiceyness' scale to indicate how hot, or not, some of the recipes are.
