    "Wow! This is the first time I have managed to find a step-by-step recipe for Mashi Corrumb. It is a very popular dish with my family particularly in winter, but it is so time-consuming and not all authentic recipes are as easy as this! I believe it is the spices and the bouillon cube that make the difference, although everyone tells me it is th..."

    "Easy and with that special "short" that you can only find with expensive bought shortbread. I want to say thanks for such a CLEAR step-by-step recipe. Rotating the tins is an important part of the recipe as it ensures uniform colour. I like this recipe as it is so like one I used to use in Scotland. Thanks!"

    "this aubergine stew was delicious and easy to make. It's a well balanced dish and is very high in proteins. We enjoy Iranian or Persian food so much, and although not usual, I served this with a plain Basmati rice dish that we make frequently at home. Thank you so much for this gem, Chef#397624. I hope to enjoy many of your recipes!"

    "This lovely rice dish was exactly what I was looking for to accompany spicy grilled chicken. It was full of flavour and much appreciated by my family. I recommend making this unique dish using the rosewater, as it really adds to the taste. Rosewater can be found in most larger supermarkets everywhere. This recipe is a real keeper!"

    "Thanks so much for posting this Blast fron the Past, French Tart! I asked for the recipe as a radio show jogged my memory. This pickle was a real hit! Delicious and sweet with loads of sultanas and a "kick" from the Madras curry powder. My children enjoy this the way I did as a child, on toasted cheese. Easy to make, it improves if you can st..."

My family prefer chicken with couscous and loved the delicious sauce. I added a good handful of raisins and waited for the raves. This even tasted delicious for lunch the next day. ..."

I was at that time looking for a really authentic Greek recipe for Baklava, as I had left all my cookbooks in Scotland. Well I found it!
