Very nicely presented cookbook with recipes which have all turned out well. I would say the recipes are mostly very Eastern Mediterranean, i.e. Turkey and east. None require particularly skilful technique so it's quite accessible in that respect.

Being harsh I've docked it a star for having a fairly tough ingredients list and not many tips for what can be substituted or dropped from a recipe. I'd recommend making a list of all the obscure stuff and buying them from a specialist store in one go. Souschef seems like a pretty good UK website if you don't have a local supplier. ( )
