Cook Book Review: The Perfect Blend By Tess Masters

This is a book review of The Perfect Blend: 100 Blender Recipes To Energize and Revitalize by Tess Masters that was published by Ten Speed Press on 27 December 2016.

Australian born Tess Masters otherwise known as the blogger behind The Blender Girl is a writer, actor, voiceover artist and self-professed blendaholic. This is Tess' third blender cook book and she has been featured on many publications and websites both internationally and locally. Tess lives in LA with her partner.

I love my blender - I've been using it every day since I bought it to make breakfast smoothies and juices. I haven't attempted anything other than liquid drinks so I was really excited to get hold of this recipe book and make something different in my blender.

This is a really great recipe book with 100 recipes you can make in a blender - from smoothies to snacks, salads, sides and soups there are lots of different recipes. I will definitely be trying the soup recipes once the colder weather is here and there are recipes for nachos, curries, burgers and pasta sauces which all look amazing.

The recipes are geared towards the health conscious and instead of sections for snacks and soups as most recipe books do this has sections for energy, detox, weight loss and so on and so you turn to that section of the book to see what recipes there are.

The recipes are based around American food sources and so it may be a challenge to find some of the ingredients here in Australia as there were some I didn't recognise.

I wish there were images for each recipe as that is what tempts me to get busy in the kitchen seeing what the finished dish should look like. Reading this as an e-book was also difficult and a hard copy version of this book is a must.

I recommend this book to anyone who has a blender it will give you some great ideas for different dishes you can make with it.

I give this book 4 stars out of  5

Jarrah Jungle's Star Rating:
1 Bad - I'd rather eat brussel sprouts topped with anchovies than read this again
2 Not Good - I'd rather watch paint dry than read this again
3 Ok - I'm sitting on the fence - its not great but not terrible either
4 Good - I'd give up a bottle of the worlds best champagne for this read
5 Great - I'd pass up a date with Johnny Depp for this read
