"Gough's work can be compared to starting to work with a few scattered threads. Add more threads, then more, then work them together, until a whole cloth has been created. He has...a wonderfully personal style of writing. He takes readers along on his journey of discovery, and makes us part of his quest. It is an engaging, effective style; in Gough's hands, history cannot be boring." (Dave Obee Victoria Times Colonist 2014-12-01)

The cook book that came with the pot looked very interesting & I would have tried some of those recipes.
The extra recipe book was useless (not what we eat).
I have returned everything & trust a refund will be reflected on our next charge card statement.
