I will start with a warning: this is a boring cooking book, that was started as a reference point for myself and my flatmate, back when I was living in Vienna. It often happened that I was at the supermarket and forgot what I needed, and to avoid going twice (or more!) shopping, so looking up the recipe became a must.

You will quickly notice there are no pictures, just some illustrations, when necessary to understand how to do a certain procedure. I personally don't like them because pictures create expectations and are a limit to our immagination. I'm sure you will find lots of yummy pictures of every dish I listed online, but that's not the purpose: creativity is.

Another reason why I state this manual is boring is because of the detailedness of the steps and ingredients, I usually forget something and hate this feeling, so I prefer to have everything written down.
