Cook. For me this book has to go straight on to the pile of must have books for 2010. It's just beautiful. The instructions are clear. The information is useful and concise. I love the synopsis of who each chef is above each recipe. It's fun, up to date, interesting and beautifully shot showing you exactly how the food looks. Considering all the different contributors - the instructions are given in a precise and consistent way that made me want to cook from it immediately. I made a fabulous Chickpea, leek and fennel soup from the October chapter - it's great to cook from.

The benchmark of a great cookbook to me is if it makes me want to rush in the kitchen and start to cook delicious food. Well this is aptly named because It did just that. It made me cook.

Bought a couple of copies as Christmas gifts and of course ended up ordering another for me. As the owner of hundreds of cookery books I didn't think I could need more. However, I really enjoyed the layout and seasonal aspect of this book, along with the varied recipes, reflective of the various contributors. I enjoy the Observer Food columns and this follows the same style and narrative. I have used many of the recipes and also dipped in for inspiration too. I heartily recommend this book. Enjoy.

Found this to be such an inspiring book with so many of our celebrity and well known cooks all together. Great recipes and loads of inspiration in many different ways.

I was a little disappointed with this book - I have around 600 and this one wont be getting used as much as some of my other cookery books. Saying that it has a wonderful tips entry for every month of the year and this book is extremely seasonable and gives very many ideas of ways to use the "right in season produce". It is ideal for a cook that follows a recipe to the "t". I tend to use this book for inspiration.

It says it's an compilation of recipes which have been in the Observer Food Monthly. However reading the actual introduction in the book it says that some have been previously published, but many more are completely new. You have to decide for yourself whether that is a plus or minus point when wanting to buy the book, but for me it was a minus, because I might not have bought it if I had known this beforehand. I don't normally read the magazine, so a 'best of' was what tempted me to buy the book.

One of the very few dishes I laid my eyes on uses potato mash from a packet as ingredient. Not really my type of cooking
