Voor het berekenen van de totale sterrenbeoordeling en de procentuele verdeling per ster gebruiken we geen gewoon gemiddelde. In plaats daarvan houdt ons systeem rekening met zaken als hoe recent een recensie is en of de recensent het item op Amazon heeft gekocht. Verder worden recensies ook geanalyseerd om de betrouwbaarheid te verifiëren.
I have lots of cookery books but none for Christmas and was left in a quandary between buying the Mary Berry's Christmas Collection or the Jamie Oliver's Christmas Cookbook. The reviews for both were good, and unable to make a decision, I ended up buying both.
Both are good and I have many of Jamie's books as he is my 'go to' author for recipe books, but I have to say Mary's won out for us this Christmas by a country mile. We cooked numerous recipes from her book and our guests loved all her recipes / the food. But the thing that won it for me was the guidance about preparing ahead that accompanied every recipe and this we found to be a real boon, helping de-stress things as people were coming and going and you wanted to be with family and friends not stuck in the kitchen. A great book, with great recipes that aren't just for Christmas. Highly recommended.
You can never go wrong with Mary Berry's books. I bought this for my son who is an avid follower of Bake Off and especially Mary Berry. These books are SO brilliantly written by Mary Berry. I must say that unless you do something hideously wrong, don't follow the instructions, or fail to use the right ingredients or don't measure them out properly, you are more or less guaranteed a good result. She really IS the cookery Goddess and especially for beginners or those who want to try something a bit more adventurous. There is something for everyone in all of her books but this one, for Christmas fare, is amazing. Long live Mary Berry !
Fantastic book that got me through my first Christmas of hosting family! I used Mary's recipes/advice for Roast Turkey, roast potatoes, braised red cabbage (mmm!), celeriac puree and turkey gravy. Fab!
Mary Berry oh so clever. Not just Christmas recipes - other collections too which could be cooked at Christmas time or any day. She writes so very well and when you read the recipes it's like listening to her talking to you - so extremely easy to cook from. The woman is a genius!! Book arrived in perfect condition, packaged so well - so glad I bought it.
As a cook I cant stop buying cookbooks to read. This is the first book I've bought from her and I must say I'm very pleased with it. I already got a huge cookbook collection (over 300 books) and I'm still finding very original recipes in it that I'm gonna try out and not for the holiday's only. All is very well explained with some nice pics as well. The christmas part is very handy also, when to start cooking for weeks before till the last day. Even the shopping list is handy. Highly recommended.
I can not wait to make things from this book. It has so many recipes with things that can be made all year round and traditional Christmas recipes too. There are tips on preparation on the run up to Christmas, menu ideas and shopping lists.
Perfect. It arrived before I expected and in the described condition I know you can get access to the recipes online but this was full of ideas I would not have known to look for. I am a big Mary Berry fan . Like Delia if you follow her recipes exactly they never fail.
I love Mary Berry - I have several of her books and therefore had high hopes for this one. I was sorely disappointed. Very little choice and the (admittedly few) recipes I tried weren’t great. The books looks lovely with beautiful pictures but save your money and look her recipes up on YouTube.
