5.0 out of 5 stars Another great title from Ainsley! 30 Aug 2001
By A Customer
This is a fantastic book. The recipes are quick and easy to follow and the food is exciting and fresh ... modern bistro cookery, if you know what I mean! I have cooked several things from this book and would recommend it to anyone who works full time but loves good food ... lovely food within half an hour of getting home! Great stuff ...

Got the book on Wednesday, entertained with it on Thursday when an excellent meal was had by all. Fool proof recipes for dishes with mostly easily obtainable ingredients (bearing in mind I live in Orkney where some of the more exotic ingredients are hard to come by).
The recipes themselves are easy to follow, and don't use fancy techniques.
I like to be able to see what the finished result should look like, and this book has an abundance of wonderful photos.
I made the baked hedgehog tatties but used french bread stick instead of the baked potato, added a few ingredients to the dressing, then served up as a starter - worked well.
The six minute soft centred chocolate puddings where to die for. I have tried this recipe from other books and have had many disasters. This recipe if followed to the "t" works a treat.
Invest in a chicken brick and try the superb lemon herb chicken - there was not a picking left on the carcass.
All in all a user-friendly, well presented, useable cookbook.
Go buy and get cooking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well done Ainsley! 26 Jan 2002
By Matiqua
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Well done, Ainsley! I think Ainsley Harriott did a wonerful job with this Gourmet Express 2: the recipes are clear, simple and most of the ingredients are easy to obtain. And if they you can't find them you can always use something else... I can't wait to try new recipes. They are simple but always special and the best thing is that they really are very quick to make. Some require a longer cooking in the oven, maybe, but you can always do something else while they get ready. Really well done! I'm definitely going to buy the first one as well!

5.0 out of 5 stars Favourite cookbook 19 April 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am a collector of cookbooks(my wife says i have a problem). This is still one of my favourites and bought this for my Son at Uni. The chorizo chowder is lovely and the black and blue sandwich is a family favourite. Have cooked at least 10 recipes from here, all good. If you only own one cookbook this should be it, this is easy to follow and pictures (never under estimate pictures) i like to see what it should look like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative recipes and very easy to follow 15 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Despite being regarded as a'good cook' I'm always loking for new, interesting but straightforward recipes. A major criticism of most recipe books is that they are extremely difficult to follow or it's easy to lose your place; this book has really addressed that. It is well laid-out with numbered step by step instructions. Brilliant!
