To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I ordered this to replace my old 1988 Larousse Gastonomique published by Hamlyn. It is a very poor equivalent. Pages are thinner, far less recipes, less pictures, and generally a very poor cousin to the book it replaced. I was so disappointed, that I have sent it back, and am now going to look for the older edition.
