This informative little book has seductive recipies and attractive photographs but is spoiled by the irritating use of bold type whenever the words OLIVE, ANCHOVY OR CAPER appear. This is makes it difficult to read as your eye is drawn automatically to the heavy type. Also, it makes the book look kitsch when in fact it is quite businesslike. A mistake.
