Tropical Inspiration

I was really inspired when I read this book. Honestly, I don't do a lot of cooking and I tend to cook the same thing over and over. Bur I was recently given the book and it has truly inspired me. The recipes are very creative and many of them are actually simple to follow. What did book did for me was to open my mind to the tropical fruits and vegetables that I had overlooked in the past. I have discovered new flavors and textures in my kitchen. The book has some great dishes that make festive party food. The book as good photos, it is laid out very handsomely, and it is just the right size. I don't like books that are so big that they are hard to handle in the kitchen. And I don't like books that skimp on information - this book does have a lot of recipes and. The book is very attractive. The Longitude/Latitude "thing" is a novel idea, but it doesn't do anything for me; I guess if I traveled a lot, it could appreciate it. Overall, I consider this book a very good value.
