What I made:

Beate’s Caesar salad (p68) I had the best Caesar salad ever in California, and since then it has been by favourite salad. The secret is to make your own dressing and to make sure the croutons are not too oily. (quoted)

What I liked about the recipe book:

It really offered up some great recipes to try and I am sure I will turn to this book on more than one occasion in the future.

Verdict:

Not all photographs are of the recipes featured. Many are of the region and some dishes I would have tried had there been photographs of the finished recipe.
