I have enjoyed cooking the occaisional Moroccan dish for many years, but after a trip there in 2009, I decided to expand my repertoire. These recipes are easy to follow and reliable. If you don't live in a city where some ingredients are readily available, you may need to make some items at home (preserved lemons & rad el hanout). I've had many dinner parties and always have requests for the recipes. If you enjoy cooking, this is a great book!
The Perfect Scoop: Ice Creams, Sorbets, Granitas, &hellip by David Lebovitz
5.0 out of 5 stars Best ice cream recipes!, Oct. 30 2011
I bought an ice cream kitchen aid attachment this summer and started experimenting with recipes. I googled most of them & all the really good quality (and exotic) recipes were by David Lebowitz. I finally just bought the book. The recipes are easy to follow, are accompanied by cute stories which make it personal and best of all...nothing low fat about them! The sauces & accompaniments are excellent as well. My favorites so far are chocolate & peanut butter & green tea. Next up is lemon & speculaas for my sister! This book is for people who like to cook and appreciate quality.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Bit Disappointing, Sept. 7 2010
I am a huge Bryce Courtenay fan but was disappointed with this follow up to the Persimmon Tree. The story seemed a bit forced in places, and while there were some unusual events and outcomes I found I had to work to read this book. I honestly preferred the ending of The Persimmon Tree...some things are best left to the imagination.
