Unfortunately, it was just so-so.
The pictures and formatting are beautiful. And the recipes are fun. But, they're not for me. A lot of the recipes replace the sugar with starchy carbs and well, that won't fly in this house. Most of the recipes seem geared for a vegetarian lifestyle, which also won't fly in this house. And while they don't include a lot of weird ingredients, there were a few. The rest of the recipes were already things we've tried and the book didn't inspire me to try them again.
But, man, was it fun a book to peruse. And it certainly grabs one's attention sitting on my counter. It's a heavy book, with semi-gloss pages full of inspiration. Unfortunately for my family, none of the recipes fit our dietary needs. But, it might fit yours and so I encourage you to check it out for yourself. Sarah Wilson, the author, put together a fun cookbook with lots of gorgeous food inside. Maybe it will work for you.
The opinions expressed here are mine. I received the book from Blogging for Books for this review.
