5.0 out of 5 stars Mary Berry - Entertaining made easy 10 Aug. 2010
I have always found Mary Berry Cookery Books to be an essential part of of my life in the kitchen. I purchased my first copy of one of her books when I was newly married 30+ years ago and over the years have built up a large selection covering so many aspects of cooking. When Lucy Young started producing books I bought each of them and between the two of them need never refer to any other cookery writer (although I do have an extensive library of cookery books). This latest book is ideal for anyone who is faced with the prospect of entertaining larger numbers of people and feel quite daunted at the prospect, not only does it assist with quantities, serving ideas etc it also has a selection of easily prepared dishes with very clear instructions on how and when to prepare the dish in relation to the time of the social occasion. I would strongly recommend all Mary Berry Books, this book has made a welcome addition to my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars answer to a prayer 6 Sept. 2010
By Jinny
I feel that this is the book I have been waiting for! I frequently have to cater for large numbers of family and always panic and have sleepless nights for weeks beforehand. I really appreciate the variety of recipes and the fact that I can prepare for either moderate or large numbers and that the hard work of planning how much to prepare has been done for me. I am thrilled with my copy.

I love this book- loads of great ideas, clear and encouraging instructions, good recipes. Friendly guidance for prep and planning makes you feel you can do stress free cooking for large numbers with these experienced cooks at your side! Really makes you want to get started.
Well set out, 'feel good about it all' book which is inspiring if you aren't used to cooking for a crowd. Very pleased I bought it as I will definitely go back to it often.

5.0 out of 5 stars Berry Berry Good!! 20 Feb. 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Just as you would expect from Mary Berry (and Lucy) easy to follow foolproof and tasty recipes. Although book is designed to feed a crowd I have either just halved the recipes for six (for two very generous helpings) or made the full amount and froze the left overs - even when freezing was not recommended and results so far have been fine.

Have learnt, and loved, from Mary Berry for nearly 40 years and this book continues to build upon an already stunning reputation and cannot fail to please.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner 9 Sept. 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Mary Berry's recipes never fail - I have several of her books and regularly do at least three or four recipes from each of them. This new book with Lucy Young is as ideal for the beginner as it is for the more experienced cook:the authors take you through each step of planning and preparing for a party; from the layout of the buffet table to the timing for each dish and for the more experienced cook there are delicious ideas. Some are very simple but effective - why didn't I think of using halved dough balls as a canape base? And the book would be worth it just for the twice baked lemon soufflé recipe. I'm really enjoying this one.
