I don’t usually like single food cookbooks. I find most of them overwork the subject in order to fill pages. Not the case with this book. The author takes us from dips to dessert and each recipe makes good sense and offers a great platform from which to experiment. I’ve made six recipes so far and they have each been very good. Lots of good photos when they are helpful. This is not a “picture on every page whether it adds anything or not” cookbook. No photos of vinaigrette but a great one of Irish Nachos (a must-try recipe!) Love the avocado factoids. Love that it is hardcover. And especially LOVE that the index is actually helpful. (Lately most all the cookbooks I’ve purchased are computer lazy. Alphabetizing an index by first word in a recipe is worthless. I mean when I want to look up a quiche recipe, it doesn’t help me when it’s listed under “A” for “Aunt Reba’s Country Fresh Egg Pie”…am I right?) If you love avocados, or know someone who does, I highly recommend this book.
Great book about how to take a simple fruit and make it great. My husband loves avocados and it’s fun to create new dishes with these recipes. She does a great job giving you a variety of recipes and the guac recipes is outstanding. Great avocado cookbook.
Lots of good recipes and information about avocados. I have used this cookbook more than I would have thought. I already loved avocados before this book but it has enhanced my appreciation and given me new ideas for avocado-based dishes.
