Review Make it Easy Cookbook and giveaway


In my kitchen I have a vast collection of cookbooks. I know nowadays you can get recipes on line but there is nothing nicer than browsing through cookbooks, looking at the glossy photos and flicking through the pages.

Make it Easy cookbook by Jane Lovett is a lovely cookbook with 100 pages. It has a selection of foolproof, stylish and delicious go ahead recipes ranging from soups and starters, fish, meat, lunches and desserts. All the recipes are simple and easy to follow so the book is suitable for an amateur or an expert cook.

Although the book does not have strictly vegetarian recipes, there are a few and most can be adapted to make them suitable for vegetarian by substituting ingredients. The book has a nice tips section at the front and also a little bit about the author. It's always nice to read something about the author as it gives a good insight as to how the author created the recipes. The book would make a lovely christmas present for someone who enjoys cooking or would like to learn. It retails at £12.99
ISBN :9781504800549


I have tried a few recipes from the book such as Spanakopita a a spinach and feta tart, Oriental salad and the sticky spiced nuts. They turned out delicious.

Score:

My score for the book: 12/15

Content -3 /5 (Purely because of not enough vegetarian recipes)
Illustrations- 5/5
Recipe Instructions- 4/5

All the views and opinions expressed in this post are my own. I would like to thank Lifestyle books for sending me this book to review.They have also been very generous and agreed to provide an additional copy for one simplyfood reader.
