Product Description

Review

Anyone of any age who has never cooked, but suddenly has to, would be grateful for this book. -- The Daily Telegraph

From the Author

Just to give you an idea of the kind of recipes there are in the book - there are really, really easy recipes for people who've never cooked before like Easiest Ever Pasta Sauce and Best Ever Cheese on Toast. as well as for more experienced cooks (Vegetarian Samosa Pie). There are recipes for the weight conscious (Chinese steamed salmon with ginger, garlic and soy) and for the sweet-toothed (warm chocolate chip cookies)
There's a step by step Christmas dinner, the low down on how to do a barbecue and how to cook a seductive meal for two (peppered steak with red wine sauce and iced pavlovas with fresh orange and passion fruit sauce).
There are recipes for when you're (very) hard up (chunky potato and garlic soup) and for when you feel like showing off and splashing out (truffled mushroom risotto and lemon vodka sorbet).
There's comfort food (mashed potato, jelly and ice cream - not all together, obviously), food for late nights (loco moco) and for the morning after (banana, yoghurt and honey roughie). And some pretty mean cocktails too . . .

I'm just starting my final year at university and after two years of pasta with tomato sauce and toasted sandwiches, I really wish this book had been published before I started. Informative, easy to use and unlike other cookbooks aimed at students, not patronising. My repertoire has definitely been extended - I never realised risotto was so easy (and cheap!). Beyond Baked Beans deserves to join the kettle and toaster as an essential item parents give to their children when they head off to university.

My mum just bought me this before i go off to university, and as someone who actually likes eating proper food and was dreading the university slop i've been told about this looks great. its divided into sections, including 'favourites', which has loads of the things I want to make at uni. I've made a couple of receipes at home - chorizo and butter bean stew and a hash, and they were both really nice.
i think this would work for anyone who is going to have to cook for themselves for the first time :)

Format: Paperback
I bought this book for a friend who's off to uni' in a couple of weeks, thinking it might persuade her into cooking and eating well. I've had the book for two weeks now and I've still not been able to part company with it! The thing is it's a brilliant book for anyone: anyone who wants to eat quickly or simply, anyone who wants to show off and entertain, anyone who simply loves cooking and eating. Classic recipes for chilli and bangers and mash sit next to more adventurous meals from roast dinners to banquets. It's an easy book for the lay person as well as students primarily because it dispenses with the naff patronising tone and look that seem to be a staple of most other student cookbooks. This is fresh in voice and appearance and will, I'm sure, take pride of place on many a student kitchen shelf for years to come.
If anyone's after a perfect gift to send off their college-bound kids, one that will take good care of them for the next two or three years away from home, you should look no further than this book.

Actually I've just graduated, so maybe this book isn't aimed at me, but I love it! When I went to uni someone gave me a book called 'How to Boil an Egg'. This book manages to be written for people under 30 without assuming they can't make toast, or that they must know how to make a perfect souffle.
If, like me, you just don't really know how to cook but would like to do more than just eat oven chips every night, then I would recommend this book!

This book is great. Going from the very basics of what equipment you will need and basic food hygiene right through to gourmet meals for friends.
I am a student and would highly recommend this book for all going to live alone for the first time, not just students.
Beckett has though of everything, from recommended wine to how to carve a chicken.
Good for beginners and advanced, but most of all easy to follow and amusingly written!!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My nephew is off to uni next month and I bought this book for him..... and like the other reviewer having looked at it I didnt want to part with it either, so I have bought myself a copy for the recipes, as I often want to have tasty meals that do not come from a microwave. Fortunately I dont need the basic instructions but having been a student myself 30 years ago I can see that this part will be invaluable to those who are having to fend for themselves for the first time..... all we had was Mrs Beaton !!
