One of the best cookbooks, ever! The book is very well laid out. The book has great photos and there are additional thumbnail photos, showing mixing and/or cooking steps. The ingredients are on the side of the page, separate from the directions and easy to quickly view. Directions are very clear. Unlike a clutter of words, any part of the recipe is easily detected without concentrating and searching the page. Another great quality, is the hardback book is constructed to lays open flat on any given page.
