The book is not the biography about the culinary experience of the author, but a list of recipes in alphabetical order. At first, the effect is as unusual as the same recipes. You won’t find chapters or the thoughts of the author, but a comprehensive and detailed explanation about how to prepare unknown and healthy dishes with likewise unknown and healthy ingredients. The list is really countless and includes foreign dishes from the Middle East to China and Italy. That is a handy cook book to follow while you are in the kitchen. The book provides you with the exact amount of the ingredients to be used in the meal. I learnt to prepare low fat Italian dishes with Bresaola and lactose free recipes such as coconut milk. The author didn’t write her thoughts amid these recipes, but only a perfect and clear explanation about how to replace common food with unknown and health ingredients coming from foreign countries, also. With this book, it is forbidden to sit on the sofa. That is, above all, a guide to cooking without those ingredients that cause allergies and food disorders.

Have you ever wanted to try a new recipe, but after reading the ingredients you may be missing one or two. It calls for baking powder, but you have baking soda on hand. With Jean MacLeod's, “The Complete Food Substitutions Handbook”, no problem. Jean's book is like a Dictionary, Thesaurus and a Bible for the Kitchen, all wrapped up into one. It has all the answers. It has the substitution for every food or spice from A to Z. If you need Allspice for instance, Jean gives the ingredients that make up allspice and the proportions. I enjoyed just reading through it, to learn the difference in Chilies. What they could be used for and what I could substitute if I couldn't find a certain kind. There are recipes included too. If you want to make your own Bisquick Mix, now you can. My family always tells me I am a good cook, now I can be even a better one. Anyone that likes to bake, cook or just learn more about certain foods and ingredients, this is the book for you. Every serious cook needs a copy of Jean's book in your kitchen. I received a copy of this book from BooksGoSocial through NetGalley. The opinions in this review are my own.
