5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant book which has changed my life! 27 Jan 2013
By Danielle TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As someone who has always wanted to cook, but has never really tried (I kid you not, I can't even crack an egg), I was looking for some books to hold my hand with the first steps.

Cooking for Beginners, provides exactly this.

The first thing I found useful in this book was the list of tools and kitchen accessories I would need, I went through the first chapter section by section and made sure my kitchen was well equipped (also, the constant deliveries of shiny new kitchen goodies from Amazon was fun).

Fully equipped I dove into the recipes.

The book is structured very well, after the initial chapters sort out your kitchen, appliances, essentials for your cupboards and even a nice workflow or 'kitchen triangle'. It even covers different preparation techniques, hygiene, high risk foods etc. Honestly, I learned so much just from the first few chapters that the actual recipes felt like bonus material. Trust me, you soon feel like a kitchen expert and ready to start tackling some recipes.

The next chapters are structured with neatly grouped sections, 'Soups and starters', 'Fish', 'Poultry'. The recipies are very easy to follow (at least the half-dozen or so I've tried so far have been), and result in some really delicious meals. I simply cannot believe some of the things I'm now making considering just a week or two ago didn't even know how to use a frying pan.

A very easy five stars, perfect for beginners.
