Review Thursday: Top 100 Pasta Dishes by Annabel Karmel

Top 100 Pasta Dishes
By Annabel Karmel
Hardcover: 144 pages
Publisher: Ebury Press (13 May 2010)

ISBN-13: 978-0091937720

If you've got kids, or are looking for a present to give someone with kids, then this is the book to go for. 

The first two sections are recipes designed for babies and toddlers. Each recipe states the youngest age kids can eat each dish, how long it takes to make, how many portions you can get out of the recipe, and whether it's suitable for freezing.  The other sections focus on poultry and pasta, meat, fish and veggy.

The ingredients are fresh but designed to work with dried pasta, dried herbs, and tins or bottles of tomato etc so you don't end up spending 3 hours in the kitchen making basic sauces. 

This book is also pretty and the hardcover means you can stuff it in your handbag when you go shopping for ingredients.  Really, this book is worth a look.
