Warning: Huge Recipe Errors!!
Reviewer: Sarah Ehlinger from Los Angeles, CA United States I think Jamie is a creative chef who uses ingredients we all love in simple, interesting ways. However...anyone thinking of buying this book should be aware that it contains HUGE MISTAKES. I don't know if they are misprints or if Jamie never actually checked the recipies, but there are big problems. The steamed chocolate pudding, for example, tastes absolutely horrible -- like salt and flour -- because he calls for 1 1/2 cups of self-rising flour, which has a lot of baking soda in it. The Mediterranean fish in a tin foil pouch needs too cook for 20 minutes, not 10, and once you've opened the foil after 10 minutes you've ruined the whole thing. Basically, I'm very irritated that no one bothered to make sure the recipies actually work. Cookbooks should have no misprints at all -- it's NOT okay to call for a cup of powdered sugar when you really mean a teaspoon (in the chocolate sauce recipe). Annoying!!! Can ruin your night!!!!
