    Thanks, jimsmillions.

    It does ask you to 'register', but that basic information is just used to post the book to you. There are a number of opt-outs once you've filled your details.

    However, you can set up an account by providing a password, once you've ordered. This helps you donate quicker when/if you return to the site.

    Sorry but I think its a bit wrong to take advantage of a charity like this.

    I would hope anyone who takes this book makes a small donation at least.

    What on earth does 'Asian' mean? There's a huge variety of different foods, recipes, cultural food traditions, in Asia. Think of India alone, then you've got China and all the other countries.

    I use their shop often and have picked up some good stuff from there. When I had to move from my furnished flat last year as the landlord hadnt paid mortgage , I moved to another and had nx to no furniture. Bought some good quality items. Alwas get rid off things there as well.

    Best buy was a fully automatic mobility chair for girlfriends dad. We were quoted 1000 for one yet the day we moved we saw one in BHF for 80 and it was so new all th cables were still in a box.

    I also hope people will donate something, I know a freebie is a freebie but the BHF do a lot of good work and even popping a few pence loose in your pocket into their charity boxes is a big help if everyone did it x

    I won this last year in a draw and haven't used it once, mainly because I don't eat meat. From memory, the recipes are very basic, and mostly Indian although heavly anglicised. I think I left it with my mum (who is an excellent cook) so it's most probably gathering dust now!

    I think it's aimed at getting the S Asian community to cut fat out of their diets / non-asians to eat low fat but tasty meals. So overall a good intention but no great shakes for accomplished cooks.

    Thinking about it I would think the book is probably funded. I would imagine they would not ship a product they loose money on. MY wife works for a charity and things often work like this. Though still good to make a donation.
