When doing your final review of each months cookbook each of us will address the topics in our blog post:
- Is the layout clear?
- Are you able to easily tell the ingredients apart for the instructions and the notes?
- Are the instructions easy to follow?
- Are the recipes numbered or is the section labeled?
- Does the cookbook feature photos?
- If yes, is there a photo for every recipe?
- Do the photos of the recipes look like the actual results?
- What kind of paper is the book printed on?
- How is the quality of the photos?
- How many recipes are in the cookbook?
- What kinds of recipes will you find in this cookbook?
- Is there a theme to the recipes?
- Are the recipes complex or simple? would they be good for seasoned cooks and/or beginners?
Ingredients and supplies
- Are the recipe ingredients easy to find?
- Are there any items that stand out as being expensive or specialty?
- Are there particular appliances that will be required such as blenders, juicers, dehydrators, ect?
- Does this cookbook provide additional useful information?
- What additional information beyond recipes does this cookbook include? Is it easy to follow?
Other important Information
- You need to make the recipes! Yes, to get an accurate representation of the cookbook you need to try out at least 3-5 recipes. Additionally when you right your review you should make sure to include your experience while cooking the recipe:
- How did the recipe turn out? How did it taste?
- Was the recipe easy to follow?
- Be honest when discussing the recipes you tried- if you didn’t like it then explain why.
FYI: Some corrections have been made in subsequent editions of Veganomicon.
