The product was exactly as stated in the description. It was in excellent condition. It only had like library stickers on it. We love it and it helped the girl scouts pick a recipe for Thinking Day for our country of choice Nepal. Item was sent fast and received quickly. Thanks
Love this book!

This book was a must after travelling in the Himalayas - makes it very easy to make Nepal's classic dishes.
Pictures are not needed to improve this cookbook!

I'm really writing this review in response to the previous. Nepali cooking is not about PRESENTATION---it is about TASTE! Nepali cooking, unlike so much American cuisine, sometimes looks unappealing until one takes their first bite, then wow!! If you really need you food to look attractive and 'just like the pictures' then this is not for you, stick with box mixes and Betty Crocker. If you are looking to make something different and special, then this edition is a dream! I cannot say enough good things about this book.

I actually bought this book in Nepal after serving for 2 yrs there as a Peace Corps Volunteer. I knew I'd get a hankering for some home cooked Nepali specialties once I got home. I haven't made the majority of the recipes in it, but it was certainly worth the cost of the book for the ones I have made, especially the spicy fried pork cubes which I make quite often. Kasto meetho lagyo!
Current Nepalese cooking possible with American ingrediants.

I like this book especially for the straight-forward simplicity of the recipes and, especially, for the great tasting food.It is good for both vegetarians and omnivores!Several cooks contributed so the cook gets a variety of styles, probably from different parts of the american Nepalese society.
