This is a nice cookbook for the beginning chef. There is a table of contents – before you start, safety tips, cooking tools, techniques, special ingredients, further reading and websites, and finally, an index.
There are nine recipes; Eggxtra tasty bake, simple black bean salad, tortilla tower, crispy tofu sticks, curried potatoes and rice, baked potato pileup, Who needs meat? Sloppy Joes, and Lemony couscous salad. The recipe instructions are well written and easy to follow. The illustrations and photographs are colorful and helpful. I think most of the recipes would be enjoyed by many.
