    I purchased this book for its beautiful cover.

    I purchased this book as a Christmas gift and after going thru it a bit more I think I might have over reached. The recipes are interesting but many have ingredients that are not common to the everyday cook. The pictures are beautiful and I gifted the book for that reason first and for recipe information second. I cannot be sure how many recipes will be tried but I believe that Plum Gorgeous will be a perfect book for display on my friend's book shelf.
