This book is also maybe aimed at people with health problems, something that annoyed me while reading the other one too. The idea that one buys a book about tempting desserts but then expects it to be all about “healthy” eating (in their opinion, of course) is quite disgusting. If you eat good quality food, lead a normal life there is no need to be on a diet, especially not on a low fat diet because we now know how important fats are not only for our health but also to prevent us getting fat (the information is all out there…. ). Why on earth does anyone need to eat Fat Free Yogurt, whatever that is… yogurt is, by nature, low fat so why eat a processed version and maybe damage your health? Well, I think that I have been vocal enough about how much these two little books have annoyed me so I will leave it as it is. This is the reason why I won’t be buying a cookbook by Jamie Oliver again either! He can keep his guilt, I will eat, great food, guilt free!!!!! I think that this modern habit of making people guilty about something as necessary as food is one day going to be seen as pure madness. Telling me how many calories, protein, fat and whatever my meal has got is also completely useless! If I was one of those people who fear food I would go for some cereal with skimmed milk (the unhealthiest you can drink), not for a scrumptious dessert…. These books are also quite old (I do own a lovely older version of Cakes and Bakes) and the constant mention of cartons of cream and odd measurements, which are not used anymore, make them odd indeed!
Here are 101 recipes that cannot fail to have you salivating like Pavlov's dog and the title gets straight to the point - Tempting Recipes - and boy this is not an understatement. One saving grace (?) and possibly something to assuage your feelings is that a lot of these recipes incorporate fruit rather than being just chocolate dishes, so maybe there is hope after all and that you might try one, two or all 101 recipes over time.
As ever in this great little BBC GoodFood series of books everything is straight to-the-point. The recipes are split into six key chapters - quick and easy puds, pies tarts & pavlovas, summer coolers, winter warmers, dinner-party desserts and finally low-fat puddings Each recipe is simply laid out, accompanied by a full-colour photograph of the final dish with ingredients clearly listed in metric (a conversion table is provided) units.
The instructions are easy to follow and to the point. If you are not too familiar with things in the kitchen you might need to read up on various techniques as the book assumes a basic familiarity but you need not be a top chef to achieve good results here. The quality of pictures combined with the excellent index allows you to browse through this book in many ways and find inspiration about what to make or try.
One of the nice things about this entire series of books is their focus, so you can go straight to a dessert book (or a chocolate book, or a mains book or whatever you require) and then look at a wealth of different recipes, rather than dragging around a set of big, heavy encyclopaedias to find that recipe you need in volume 8, page 754! This reviewer would just wish the instructions were printed a little larger or with a little less greyscale but that is a personal choice based on ageing eyes.
In keeping with all books in this series, the price is good, the content is superb and the range excellent. If you don't eat desserts this isn't for you, but otherwise it can be a good candidate for your bookshelf and regular "reading list"
