Not what I had expected

By Cheryl

from Newmarket

Was hoping for more instructional ways to use the garnish tools There were some good recipes in the book, but I can get recipes online.......Didn't teach you how to use the tools, which was my expectation. Should have listened to the prior reviews...

Not wow!

By Sunshine

from Calgary

I would have liked to have seen more in this comes up rather short. Perhaps a demo dvd would have been better... like the demos on TV of the product, but those are often too short too.

Very Disappointed

By Jacquie B.

from Winnipeg

I was looking for a book that gave you great ideas on doing appetizers
This was a cook book for recipes and not for using the Garnish Set which I purchased
I wasn't looking for a cookbook I was looking for a prep book for appetizers and not just the ones for baby shower or wedding showers. I wanted ideas for cocktail parties.

By Sandry

from Collingwood ON

I have had the original garnishing set for awhile and was thrilled to see a new version of it become available. Also the garnishing book. WOW!what luck. I love my garnishing kit and use the
Items regularly. I remembered a few of Marian's garnishing techniques but not many. I expected the book to display these. So disappointed!!!!
The book is mainly a book of recipes that anyone can get off the internet. Sure there are a few fancy dessert ideas but these are not what people want. The recipes,in bold print,tell which tool to use. Anyone with any cooking experience knows that you take a peeler to take the skin off the carrot before using a knife to cut it for the recipe.
I felt this book was put together quickly, with previously used recipes, to meet the deadline for the new garnishing set. (IT has fewer tools than mine) Neither set has the channel knife so often mentioned.
Usually I hum and haw about sending things back but not this time. Out of the package, a look through and back into the package, resealed and ready to go back. I am not going to keep inferior products that have been produced quickly to boost the sales of another product.
Marion, I am so disappointed in you. Your TV presentations and demonstrations are so wonderful.
Please write another garnishing book without recipes but with techniques of how to make the creative appetizers that you demonstrate on TV.

Best Prep & Garnish Recipes

By kjw57

from Oakville, Ontario

I purchased 4 of the garnish sets and they are fantastic. The book however, I had to wait 5 months to get because the SC could not find it. Anyway, I am very disappointed in is as it needs more directions for garnishing and less recipes.
I have had other garnishing books years ago and they were full of ideas. Wish I still had them.

Very disappointed in this book so I only ordered 2!

A bit disappointed

By Marlyne

from Keremeos, B.C.

Gold Reviewer

I purchased book plus the set of garnishing tools. I love the set and use them alot, however, am not too happy with the book.....yes, some very nice recipes, yes, some ideas for garnishing HOWEVER the tools mentioned in the book's preface are NOT included in the set. The crinkle cutter is a real necessity if following the recipe instructions in detail. This should have been included. The T.V. demonstration with Marian stressed how useful it was to purchase the book with the tool set. Not quite the case if we don't have all the tools in the book!


Excellent for new ideas

By sparks

from Surrey BC

Easy to follow receipes, instructions on which tool to use is most beneficial. Good source of different ideas for entertaining. Pleased I purchased.

Great book, but............

By Purse fanatic

from Toronto, Canada

Silver Reviewer

I purchased both the garnish set as well as this book thinking they would go hand in hand. And they would, except for the fact that the majority of the recipes mention the use of a "V" shaped tool that isn't included in the garnish tool set that is being sold. I think that's a huge issue since it's not just the odd recipe that requires it. Otherwise, it's a great book if you're just looking for ideas, which is why I would still recommend it.


Easy to do recipes!!!!

By wife of gajit man

from Hamilton Ontario

This book is filled with alot of down to earth usable recipes. I have made so many so far and have plans to make several more. They use all of the wonderful tools I received with it. A definite must have!!!
