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!.
