To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
If you can buy all the ingredients in Aldi or Lidl then it's my kind of cookbook - I have no intention of spending a small fortune on rare and expensive ingredients, nor do I have the time to visit multiple specialist delis. Recipes are quite easy to follow, pictures are good. Interesting flavours I probably wouldn't have tried had I not seen the author demonstrate on Saturday Kitchen. You can find some of the recipes online for free, so try before you buy, but for me it was worth buying the book for those not available elsewhere.
I would have preferred to see some nutritional information with each recipe, as you find in some cookbooks.
I am never sure that a recipe book quite works on Kindle but I am trying to prune down the number of books in the house so this seemed like a good idea. They are lovely - and rather different - recipes and they really are Simple as the title suggests. Very good for inspiration even if you don't follow the recipes to the letter.
I gave this book as a present to my son, he started using it immediately, and was most enthusiastic, he was already a fan of this sort of cookery. Maybe I am not being fair in only giving it 4 stars, but with the present lockdown, it requires ingredients not available in his immediate vicinity !
I like Sabrina's books a lot. Though Persiana is still the best she has, this new one achieves what the title says: Simply. You have delicious dishes for every day without hard-to-find ingredients and are easy to make. If you are looking for a cookbook that helps you to eat good food during your stressful workdays, this is your book.
I gave it 4 stars because I found some recipes similar to others she already has in her old books.
Ghayour provides a variety of gorgeous, colorful, dishes, adapted for the American cook. Everything from appetizers to desserts, simple suppers to more banquet-appropiate meals. The author provides many vegetarian options, and the dishes with meat, chicken, and fish are heavy on grains and vegetables. So many of these meals looked appealing: I would have a hard time selecting the first to try out. These recipes seem created for a home cook with average experience.
