    Pretty basic dishes but made with a modern twist. Sausage rolls, coleslaw, quiche, risotto, moussaka, with detailed 'how to' pages that would sit a younger cook, yet with enough twists to keep an older one happy. Good gift material.

    I kept a boyfriend for way longer than should have based soley on the merits of this book. Not that I would recommend that strategy, for surely the way to a man's cold black heart is also through his stomach, but still-- some damn fine cookin'!

Donna’s cookbooks are beautifully presented with many, large, full-colour, elegant photographs of the respective dishes; the photographs really motivate the reader to get out there and start cooking! Both of these cookbooks have a wonderful variety of mouth-watering recipes inside; theres something for everyone. The cooking instructions for each recipe are very concise and this is perfect for the experienced cook. At the same time, these succinct instructions might cause a few problems for the beginner cook who might prefer more step-by-step instructions until they can get the hang of things. I still recommend that cooks with all levels of expertise, buy these cookbooks, but the... * Please click through to read the whole review: http://bookreviewsbybobbie.wordpress....

    There is quite a variety of Donna Hay books in print and I am dabbling in several of them. The online cooking site I Heart Cooking Clubs features a different chef/cook every six months. The last vote for a female chef was won by Donna Hay. I must say, I am enjoying cooking with her recipes and so far it’s all been delicious (if I may say so myself). So far, all the cookbooks I have perused display wonderful photos of the food and easy to follow recipes. Let me highlight a few of cookbooks here.

So far, all the cookbooks I have perused display wonderful photos of the food and easy to follow recipes. Let me highlight a few of cookbooks here. Fast, Fresh Simple offers a great collection of recipes. There is a fresh take on some tried and true recipes and some pretty good short cuts too. If you are in a hurry but don’t want to skimp on fresher ingredients, this is a good resource. I have made the Garlic Prawn Pasta and Bacon lentil soup so far. The Instant Cook has beautiful yet simple photos of food. There is quite a bit of Asian and Mediterranean flavors and all recipes are, as the title implies, easy, quick with a minimal list of ingredients. From this book I have made Lemon Marinated Artichoke salad. Please check out my site for photos and a detailed review: http://novelmeals.wordpress.com/2013/...

    The perfect basics. There is not much more you could ask for as a beginner cookbook. Donna Hay really hit the nail on the head when she called this book "Modern Classics". The book is filled with familiar recipes that have been cleaned up, making them lighter and fresher. There is nothing particular wonderful about the book, but you will miss it if it's not on your shelf.

Turn to page nine and take your pick. All the ones you know are there: pumpkin, pea and ham, wonton and roast tomato. Easy as.

    I had recently come across the term, "Australian look", for food photography/styling, and it was said that Donna Hay and the photographers that she used, were at the forefront of this "clean look". I picked up a couple of books to see what the fuss was all about. The photography throughout this book is quite nice, and there is an enticing collection of recipes with concise instructions. It's nice to see many of the recipes presented with large full page photographs.

    Simple cooking at its best. Every recipe has a short ingredients list but the quality is imperative. The photography is classic Donna Hay - white background, white plates, few thing to distract from the food.

    Nice big pictures are good but you ultimately want the recipe to turn out a success and i have to say Hays straightforward instructions will almost guarantee it will!

    I would probably give it more stars but I never got around to making any of the recipes. Plenty of them look good, though. I copied a few & will try soon.

    A lot of good recipes, but I haven't found them as reliable as The Instant Cook.
