Pereira, who was a finalist on season 12 of the Great British Bake Off, shows off both her excellence in baking and her love of cooking savory meals for family and friends in her debut cookbook. She continues to create inventive flavor profiles inspired by her Portuguese and Goan heritage and her passion for travel, encouraging readers to try new condiments to completely change classic British meals. Pereira uses “star ingredients” throughout the book, giving readers multiple recipes for each—hopefully alleviating that constant frustration of cookbook readers: buying a spice that is used once and then languishes in the cabinet forever. Each recipe is well-organized, allowing the reader to easily flow through it during cooking. It is worth noting for U.S. audiences that the recipes utilize Celsius and weights for some ingredients, so conversion will be necessary for most recipes.
VERDICT With charming anecdotes and vibrant photography, this cookbook is a beautiful feast for the eyes that will help cooks create a bountiful feast for their stomachs.
