This book is a must in any kitchen. It covers many of the basic recipes such as Chicken Stock, Vegetable Stock, Beef Stock and Fish Stock. The lists of ingredients are the kind that you should be able to find just about anywhere. Many of the recipes are time savers. This book does have recipes included that are more complex, and elaborate as well as variations for many of the recipes. She has included Salmon & Green Tea Soup, Chinese Chicken Noodle Soup and Onion Soup to name a few. She is descriptive and precise with her directions. Don’t be daunted by the list of ingredients, the recipes are actually really easy to make. It keeps with a normal format of telling you exactly what equipment is needed to complete the dish; to wonderful presentation photos of each dish, without going overboard on the number of pictures. Her tips that are included on recipes are helpful and informative. I loved her Onion Soup it was easy, the taste is fabulous and I can’t wait to try more of her recipes. This book a great asset to my kitchen, and it has taught me quite a bit. This world collection of recipes is phenomenal. Thank you so much Sibel for sharing!
