I did a review but it's not been published yet. It's very expensive  
is the drawback. Over $80.00 plus s/h. Published in Belgium.

I like it a lot and recommended it for those readers that work with  
English cookery in manuscripts.

You'll see of course if you read this review very closely that I am  
in it.

CBH told me "pity they misspelled your name, but you are probably used  
to that by now."
