Cool and interesting concept, but sadly, this cookbook was not for me. As I sat leafing through the menus, I realised there wasn't a single one where every course appealed to me. Further, the style of food - meant for sharing in a family sized group - was not suitable to my situation. I'm not going to give this book a rating, because I don't think that would be fair - just because it's no use to me doesn't make it a bad cookbook, and it's obvious from the other reviews that it suits many people. I'll keep to my pottering about in the kitchen, being disorganised and making it up as I go.
