I liked the table showing cooking times for different ingredients. It really opens the door to designing your own recipes rather than just blindly follow instructions. Each recipe usually has tips and alternatives supplied for that hard-to-find ingredient, or that substitution you weren't sure about.
When you begin a chapter, there is always a division made: simple everyday dishes, and one another labeled "spectacular entertaining", which are simply more elaborate dishes. It's a clear, clean, no nonsense book and I appreciated the "straight to the point" tone of it; no time to lose. Pictures are a bonus, even if they do not illustrate each recipe. I refer myself to it a lot !
Every single recipe I've tried so far has been wonderful, and well worth the prep time in the morning. All of the meals have been lovely, even after 9 or 10 hours, with my slow cooker set to switch to warm after the time specified in the recipe, making them ideal for busy work days.
If you buy this book, do yourself a favour and start with the pumpkin soup- simply amazing, and worth the price of the book all by itself, in my opinion:)
