Not all cook books come with clear photos of the finished product, this one does. For every meal that is in the book, a beautifully curated photo showing the finished product is shown. The photos of cooked meal are attractive and it wills surely inspire you to start preparing those ingredients shown on the book itself, or even inspired you to come up with your own recipe.

So if you are the metric type of person, do get this right before starting you meal preparation. If you want to jump from one recipe to another, do go to their index at the end of the book, look for specific recipe and straight on get started with what you would love to try.
