I also returned the book.
I found the yellow type face to be illegible and it is used on every page throughout the book. It is impossible to scan pages for headings, recipe titles, or the like. I also found the page layout to be very heavy and wordy, making the book appear more a textbook that a work for creative enjoyment. I have excellent reference cookbooks, so I'm choosy about what I purchase. This one needs some revision in style to make it worth the purchase.Was this review helpful?

total lack of imagination, nothing like the magazine
I recently purchased this book for my sister online and I'm really dissapointed with what I received. It has recipe after recipe, with the titles in yellow lettering that are difficult to read. There isn't one picture in the entire book,leaving you uninspired to cook any of the recipes because you can't see what they are supposed to look like.The most expensive part of the book is the cover, which is quite pretty and since it's all you see online it leads you to believe that the inside is probably even better. I expected something much better from Gourmet Magazine.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
