Maureen: Donna. Bah!
Kirstin: That bad, eh?
Maureen: The problem with Donna is that (sigh) her recipes don’t show any love or affection for food.
Kirstin: That’s exactly it. You nailed. The pictures are gorgeous though and that’s what dragged me in. I think she’s more into the looks of food than the eating and enjoying.
Maureen: And the timings were wrong. I’m convinced she wanted to kill somebody.
Kirstin: I will not be cooking from this again. Although I will look at the pages for inspiration on great food photography.
Maureen: The other thing is that it felt really dated to me. There was lots of pasta and sun dried tomatoes which felt very 1990s to me.
Kirstin: That might be the whole Australian food thing though. I don’t know. I haven’t been there…it’s on the list of places to go.
