I recieved the book earlier on today, and was so happy to see it. My parents have had one in their kitchen since 1991, and aptly name it 'The Cookery Bible'.
I've now moved out, and had to get my own copy. On looking not only at the cakes section (which is extensive and VERY good and I'm very well aquianted with) but also at the rest of the recipes, I see that they are also just as good and easy to read as the rest of the book, and look forward to making some of the jams and rabbit recipes suggested! It's full of wonderful traditional recipes, and I feel it's a must have for every home.
A wonderful book that I would recommend to everybody.
