Written in a very, very cutsy way. "Oh, we urban girls are so busy but ..." "Oh, we urban girls love cafes!"The recipes are very simple and basic, none tempered me to try. She gives a section of "urban" cocktails, again very basic and simple. Included is a "recipe" for Lemoncello liqueur. Sorry, soaking lemon peel in sweetened volka isn't going get you a world-class liqueur; that however is the level of most of the recipes.

Not feeling this vegan cookbook, but really I'm not feeling the cook herself. Her directions and complicated and the two recipes I tried were not good at all--sticky toffee pudding cake-blech and the sauce accompanying was even worse. Although, the non-desert recipes did look good and I'll probably give one or two a try.
