This is a very pretty book - lovely design, gorgeous photographs. If, however, you are actually looking for a book to bake from, this is not your book. After going on about how "less is more" Meg Ray then includes recipes that are ludicrously large (she claims they can't be cut down). So, if you want to look at the pictures, by all means, go ahead. If however you don't want to bake 12 dozen chocolate chip cookies, I'd suggest moving on to a book more suited to the home baker.
