I am sure if I had watched the associated television programme, I would feel warmer towards this book but the presentation doesn't grab me, tie me down and pull me in. I have well over 150 cookery books and there is something, that I am struggling to identify, as to why I am uninspired. I look at the book and the photographs of the food do not have the food-porn wow factor. However, I am quite certain the recipes are good, after all Tom Kerridge is an exceptional chef who has, I am sure, inspired weight loss for many but the book does not inspire me. Thinking that it was perhaps this specific book, I bought a second Tom Kerridge book, unwrapped the parcel, opened the book and felt equally deflated.
Great recipes if you enjoy cooking! -
This book is fantastic, have now tried a good range of them and all were a success. Plus have lost weight using them. Because Tom Kerridge knows how to add flavour without calories, these all taste so good, you dont feel like it's a diet! There are a lot of ingredients to buy for some recipes, but if you cook regularly you can see where substitutes would work. Portion sizes are large, the puddings say for four, I make six.
Where else can you get so many recipes from a michelin chef for this price? A book I pick up on a daily basis.
Lose weight for good - Tom Kerridge -
So pleased with this book and it was well worth the wait as it was out of stock at first. It's definitely one I will get plenty of use out of and cannot wait to try out some delicious recipes.
What I like is that there are recipes that are easy to follow and will not cost the earth to produce for a family. I purchased the book to try and ensure my cooking was more healthy rather than to lose a lot of weight and am happy that it will do both.
The delivery was extremely quick and the packaging was excellent to protect the book and it was received in perfect condition. The price was brilliant. All in all, I would highly recommend this book.
