Great to get the book to go with my new block... cant wait to test out the recipes
It is a great read. Lots of tips. But unfortunately all of the measurements are in imperial. Having Australian authors will alleviate the need to use measurement converters.
Great book ..lots of interesting recipes for both hot and cold plus lots of general information.
