Simple, but elegant
I've been using this cookbook when at my daughter's house for two years. Recipes are simple, flavorful, and beautiful presentation. Not the run of the mill stuff. Calls for simple and FRESH ingredients. Since we eat only organic foods, it's easy to find recipes to prepare that are very flavorful. Haven't been disappointed in a single recipe! I'm finally getting my own copy instead of using her's!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Great cookbook - inspiring and great illustrations
This cookbook is an inspiration for simple meals, made easily but turn out with a gourmet taste and presentation. She offers several variations on simple recipes to change them from traditional to current or vegetarian. After 30 years of cooking for a family, it has inspired me to take my cooking to the next level without being overwhelmed with complexity.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Donna Does It Again!
Donna Hay and her staff have created yet another collection of recipes that beg to be visually savored and then quickly added to the menus planned for next week. Like several of her previous books, the emphasis is on beautiful food that belies its ease of preparation. The ingredients and styling look as though they come out of a top restaurant kitchen, but in a home kitchen the results are just as easily achieved. I highly recommend Donna Hay Magazine to those who find the idea of waiting another year for a new book from Donna Hay to be more than they can bear. Don't let the 'Australian-ness' of any of her books or magazines throw you off--there's a picture of every recipe and it's easy to learn that we say belgian endive, they say witlof. You may have a hard time finding Moreton Bay bugs (used in several recipes in her magazine), but frozen crayfish make a reasonable substitute.Was this review helpful?
