Format: Paperback
I am so impressed with this book, it really does provide meals with just 4 or fewer ingredients. Originally, friends told me about it and I thought it too good to be true but I have just made a Pecan Pie which true to its word only required 4 ingredients. I am a busy parent without much time on my hands, this book is a god send!

I was recommended this book by some Australian friends who were over in Blighty last summer. Apparently it's taken the whole of Oz by storm and I can see why having just got a copy myself. These recipes are so good and simple that even my 10 year old can use the book and the variety of meals that one really can cook with just 4 ingredients is a real surprise. It's much better - and cheaper - than all those books by celebrity chefs that include ingredients that I'm sure no one ever has to hand. I can't recommend it enough.

I heard about this from a friend and decided it would be worth a look. I am not the world's best cook and anything that makes life easier is a worth a shot in my view!

I have to say I am a bit disappointed with what arrived. The book is filled with "recipes", however it seems like some shouldn't really count as recipes. Take for example korma chicken - the four ingredients are chicken, 2 carrots, freshly chopped coriander AND a jar of Korma sauce. Another one for Rogan Josh - the four ingredients are lamb, 1 onion, 1 yellow pepper AND a jar of Rogan Josh sauce. I expected details of how to make your own sauce using 4 ingredients rather than the sauce being one of the ingredients. Maybe I was expecting too much but I feel a bit cheated by that as it should really be called ways to improve dishes, rather than recipes.

It is good in that it may give you ideas of how to add more to dishes and learn how to experiment yourself adding different flavours etc. It also could be a good introduction to cooking for kids. However I think £7 is a bit expensive for what it is and there are better books out there for introduction to cookery. It gives a few good tips but I don't think it will be a book you use over and over, I think it is one that will be put in the back of a cupboard and forgotten about.

Like I said, maybe I was expecting too much and there are some good tips and ideas there, but on the whole it did not really impress me.

This book is great for anyone like me who is somewhat domestically challenged! It's really simple and easy to follow. I can highly recommend the zingy chicken - chicken dipped in soy sauce and egg and rolled in crushed cornflakes?! Who'd have thought it?
The only thing I don't like is that part of it is cheating - in some cases, one of the four ingredients is a 'jar or sauce' or 'vegetables'.

I was fairly sceptical about these recipes as they are so simple and indeed some ae ridiculously so. But I have made a few of them and they have worked very well- not fancy cookery but very tasty. I made the pineapple cake and my son and husband said it was the best cake they have tasted! It was certainly the easiest cake I have made! I recommend this as it is full of very good ideas.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book after hearing a couple of interviews with the very enthusiastic authors. To be fair the book is as described but as a reasonably accomplished cook I found it all a bit basic; I think the entries, on the whole, would be better described as quick meal ideas rather than recipes. This would be great for a student going off to university or someone who is living on their own for the first time and who isn't a confident cook but I wouldn't buy it for someone who is a regular cook.

I bought this recipe book after seeing the programme on Good Food Channel on Sky and the fact that there were 4 of less ingredients appealed to me. I have tried several of the recipes and have been very pleased with the result. There are no pictures in the book but on the whole that doesn't matter as what you get at the end is very good. I would recommend this recipe book to all my friends.

4 Ingredients by Kim Mc Cosker
4 Ingredients is a new paperback cookery book by Kim Mc Cosker and Rachael Bermingham. Its ISBN is 0646470809 and it is published by 4 Ingredients. This cookery book contains 340 recipes using four ingredients or less. Its layout is clear and the recipes are simple. It uses basic ingredients that everyone has in their cupboards anyway. It promotes experimenting with food and offers some good cookery tips. It covers snacks and meals. It is a good introductionary book for students or beginners. I loved this book for cooking with my little nieces. It could also be called Cooking for Dummies. I didn't like the adding of jars of sauces to recipes and they cheated by listing a jar or some vegetables but still it is a good first cookery book.
