The recipes are divided into sections, soup, beef, seafood, etc....., with most accompanied by stunning photos of the dish. The layout of the recipes is attractively pleasing, with step by step instructions given. I was confused by a word or two; I’m not sure if it was a mistake in proof-reading or because I’m a novice cook. It’s an easy guide to follow though and I have tried quite a few already.
Instructions are given on how to make your own dough and dumplings instead of buying it, which may be handy for those with dietary requirements. To make the Crayfish Cabbage Rolls though, instructions are given on how to properly kill a crayfish. I’m sure there are many out there who wouldn’t turn a hair but I’m not one and I felt a little queasy.
It is a handy guide of quick, simple dishes and useful for anyone to have in their kitchen. I recommend it for students or anyone who has just gone flatting. It will build up cooking skills as it increases confidence in the kitchen.
