Reviewed in Canada on March 6, 2021
The book has a nice glossy presentation and initial impressions are favorable which soon dissipate. There is almost no rhyme or reason for the disorganized order of the recipes. The indexes are a complete joke. Instead of the recipes being listed alphabetically they are listed in the page sequence. Also, as an example, don't expect chicken recipes to be listed under "chicken" instead look for; Shanghai, Crispy, Fried, Buttermilk, Panko, Buffalo, Garlicky and on and on it goes all found in different parts of the book. Another example, in the main index under "F", if you look up French Toast you'll find one recipe. Surprise..... there are also other French Toast recipes elsewhere listed under "C" for Crispy and "P" for Peanut Butter. The only sure way to find anything you might be looking for is to leaf through the book page by page. It's unfortunate the recipes are so poorly organized and the indexes are useless as some of the recipes do look good. However, I don't need the frustration so it's going back.
