    HIGHLY RECOMMEND - must add to your collection

    This is THE best cookbook ever. I trust every recipe in it. The seabass wrapped in prosciutto is to die for and the chocolate macadamia nut torte would be my last meal bar none. You must add to your cookbook collection.
    Someone gave me this cookbook, I have given it to over a dozen, and a friend that I gave it to has given it to at least a dozen ladies.
