Let's get this straight - the book itself is beautiful (great pictures, easy to read and things certainly look appealing). The recipe instructions are largely simple and easy to follow. The recipes themselves is where this beauty went wrong. Food is bland and unpalatable. Something here, necessary to create 'the magic', is just missing. We tried several recipes (the pea pesto gnocchi for one) and the result was dreadful - we actually tossed the massive amount of leftovers out (I love gnocchi and I make it from scratch often so I do not think my skill or tastebuds were the issue). I will likely force myself to try a few more recipes and update review accordingly.
I also found the organizational structure of the book odd/ hard to navigate. Recipes are by ingredient, so you will find breakfast recipes mixed in with mains and snacks. From a cursory glance (i.e. I read everything, but didn't count), there doesn't seem to be a good amount of main courses.
This book is probably 'ok' for someone that is just beginning to cook/ prefers their food plain (if you want simpler, there are better books - buy YUM Universe instead or My Darling Lemon Thyme), but it wasn't for me.
I had several recipes fail (one failed twice on two separate occasions), the issue I have with this book, is not that the recipes failed, but that so many failed in such a big way - i.e. nothing was salvageable, i had to throw it out and it was a waste of money and food, I have the necessary equipment, and I have been cooking for several years (many of those were in a professional kitchen), so it is not all error on my part. The proportions do not add up, the measurement style is not always clear, and is not always consistent, and for the most part a lot of the recipes were bland, lacking seasoning and favour. I believe the counter argument to this assertion is that it takes some time to cut out the flavours from processed foods and get used to the taste of the raw vegetables and whole foods themselves, however, I have been eating a clean diet for several years so I do not believe this is the cause. The gluten free breads/ baked goods need some tweaking, the most successful method I have used to "mimic" a gluten flour incorporates a ratio of roughly 40% whole gran to 60% starch, often with some added bonding agent, Ella does not use this method, but generally uses a whole grain flour on its own, and a lot of the baked goods i tried turned out flavourless crumbly, and overly dense.Read more ›
