Reviews - What do customers think about Heart and Soul?
love this ! Jul 17, 2008

Not too exotic for me May 21, 2008
I was impressed with her North African Lamb Shank Stew made in a tangine... I found all the ingredients via the internet... if you want to try something it's not hard to find the ingredients... I even made the stew in a tangine exactly as she did on her show "Heart & Soul" It was superb. Don't be afraid to explore the internet to find the exotic ingredients or did you think you'd find everything you need to cook her exotic food in a "Whole Foods" store? Wake up and smell the spices.
love kylie books Jan 8, 2008
i am hooked on kylie's cookbook.i wish she got her own dvds too.i am sure all her fans will really like it.the ingredients she uses in her books are so easy stuff.
Not What I Expected Sep 30, 2007
I was hoping for a book more based on Kylie's TV show. The ingredients in this books were too exotic. I want to be able to find most of the ingredients in our local supermarket. I ended up returning the book because I couldn't find one recipe I would even try.
I Love This Cookbook Aug 12, 2007
I love Kylie Kwong and this cookbook is one of my favorites. Her global Asian approach to food preparation has taken my cooking to a whole new level. I have introduced products that were unfamiliar to me like Chinese Red and Black Vinegars, Palm Sugar, Kecap Manis and Chinese Cooking Wine, to my existing recipes which has taken my dishes to a whole new level. I love the direction my food has taken!!!! This is a great book.
