FIRST SENTENCE: I carry a notebook everywhere and it almost always ends up tattered, dog-eared, and splashed with various food stains from eating my way around the world or cooking in my kitchen.
SUMMARY: [From BN] Living a life as colorful and creative as Rachel Khoo—star of three BBC television series, author of bestselling cookbooks, illustrator, and international tastemaker—creates a constellation of ideas and inspiration. All of her gifts pack this exuberant more-than-a-cookbook, with its rounded corners and hefty notebook feel. Each turn of the page offers doable and delicious recipes, style-setting ideas from around the globe, 250 photographs, and Rachel's charming illustrations and engaging notes. Here's a cookbook unlike any other—one that brings a smile of surprise and delight every time it's opened.
THOUGHTS: I now need to acquire every book by Rachel Khoo. This book reads and feels exactly like her TV show. And I mean that in a good way. It's the right balance of recipes, pictures, and narrative.
Also, we've made a recipe out of this, and it was fantastic. It's going on our make again list.
RATING: 8/10 [Terrific]
