I don't often write reviews, but this cookbook is seriously incredible. Yes, most recipes do seem like a lot of work, especially with the various components (sauces, etc), HOWEVER, it is well worth the effort. I have three young children, and I find I still have time to make these dishes for weekday meals. My older girls enjoy helping me make the sauces in the morning, which are not complicated at all. Then at dinner time, I just cook rice & veggies, assemble, and dinner is ready. A lot of the sauces keep well, or are in large quantity, so I portion them out & freeze for future use. My favourite is the tahini sauce, which is great on just about anything, so I love having a jar of that in the fridge. I have yet to try a recipe in here that needed additional seasoning, modification, or that wasn't absolutely delicious. I am very picky about recipes & cookbooks in general, and as a gluten-free vegan (and former chef), this book exceeds all expectations.
