5.0 out of 5 stars Cookery in colour by Marguerite Patten 20 Nov 2002
This cookery book has been around for years, but it is still one of the best ever printed. The recipes are very easy to follow, even for a beginner. The colour pictures are a delight to the eye. I have taught three sons to cook, and they still refer to this book. It was given to me as a wedding present in 1965, and I still have and refer to it now. It tells you what cuts of meat come from which animal, and how to prepare and cook it, advice on fruit Veg, wine, how to recognise and cook fish. It is truely a "picture encyclopedia for every occasion".

5.0 out of 5 stars A memory of childhood 24 Oct 2007
Cookery in Colour is for me a memory of childhood. My mother used this book extensively during her culinary adventures and I used to leaf through it at times in my youth. I remember it as the definitive cookbook. Recently I used the toffee recipe to make some toffee apples and found it again to be a thoroughly reliable basis for my own adapted recipe.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cookery in Colour 29 Nov 2010
An old favourite, this book was on my cookery book shelf from an early age, but somehow got lost in the move from Britain to Australia! I was delighted to be able to get another copy after all these years! Its instructions are simple to follow, and there are excellent pictures to show finished results. Including Hors D'Oeuvre, Soups, Fish, Meat, Vegetables, Sweets, Cakes, Breads, Snacks, Preserving, Entertaining dishes and even Wines, there are many interesting and delicious recipes to be discovered. Enough to last a lifetime. Excellent value. Cannot recommend it highly enough for the beginner or intermediate level cook. Good value for money. Worth buying!.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great contents 8 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
Classic receipes. A book loved but thrown out with age some time ago. Decided that I wanted the book again. Unable to get new so purchased "used". Happy with the content as I knew I would be but the book smelt through being stored in damp conditions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Found it at last 3 Jan 2013
By Anna S.

My favourite aunt gave me this book and told me I will never need another cookery book. I ran pubs and used a lot of recipes out of it for buffets and even made a wedding cake! Unfortunately I lost it during moving, I was truly gutted. You can imagine how pleased I am to find this book again.
