Book Description

Dec 1999

Delia's How to Cook: Book Two continues Delia's simple-to-follow teaching course for people of all ages and abilities. With her unique powers of communication, Delia removes the fear and mystique from cooking both the simplest and the more advanced dishes. For those who have mastered the techniques and for those who are already accomplished cooks How to Cook: Book Two contains a collection of 120 simple recipes from Roast Lamb in a Shrewsbury Sauce to Fresh Pecan and Almond Crumble. The cookbook and television series feature the following ten sections: The Store Cupboard; Fish; Meat; Poultry; Vegetables; Salads; Dairy Produce; Fruit; Cheese and Chocolate.

How to Cook is a complete guide to cookery for the twenty-first century. Delia shares not only her vast experience, but also her extensive knowledge of English cooks, such as Eliza Acton. This tradition is combined with the very latest advances and innovations in cooking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book! 25 Jan 2000
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I have only recently become more enthusiastic about cooking and have never bought cookery books before. I actually wasn't going to buy this book as I assumed it would be very dull and simplistic and wanted the River Cafe cookbook. In the end I decided to buy both but never expected to use the Delia Smith. I am however really pleased with the book, it is far from boring and their are many recipes suitable for entertaining which are really original. It does read as though you know nothing but I find all the recipes very well explained, for example they tell you how long you need to prpare the ingredients ahead and to preheat the oven/grill! For anyone who wants a foolpoof set of recipes which create quite impressive meals I really recomend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best around 20 Jan 2000
Format:Hardcover
I love to cook and have used Delia's books for many years. I find it difficult to be objective about her, as she has always been my favourite from a young age. However, I still believe the series of "How to Cook" and the associated books to be unequalled. Many professional chefs criticise these books as an insult to the intelligence. They are really missing the point. Delia does what she does best. She introduces cookery in an enjoyable, easily approachable way, to those who would otherwise be terrified of the idea of using a kitchen for that purpose. At the same time, she provides great cook books for people who have experience of such matters. The extremely delicious results speak for themselves. I would recommend buying book one first, but apart from that one qualification, this is an excellent book and along with book one should be a first choice for those intending to become more proficient in cookery, whether from scratch, or building on previous knowledge and experience. Great recipes for people who love their food but don't feel compelled to be involved in the pretension which often surrounds food.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Cook book 21 Feb 2000
Format:Hardcover
I was very pleased to receive this book for Christmas. To me, Delia's a hero, I just love her recipes - they're are not necessarily for people wanting to diet, but they are simple and very delicious. This book makes me feel nostalgic, because before I left home, my mum used to cook recipes from her previous books. I will now continue to cook her recipes for my children.
P.S the shepherd's pie is a firm favourite in my family - it is better than any supermarket bought one.

5.0 out of 5 stars 27 year old son at first a little insulted! 19 April 2000
Format:Hardcover
At first our 27 year old son was not too happy to receive Books 1 and 2 for his birthday present but is now fully won over. Two reasons for the conversion are the many tips that you normally learn by trial and error and because all the recipes work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good on the whole 7 Jan 2000
Format:Hardcover
The book begins with an inventory for your store cupboard, and procedes through meat and veg to cheese and chocolate. While there are some good helpful ideas (how to cook fish for example) I'm not sure how realistic some of her aims are. She crusades against factory chicken, listing a couple of manufacturers she finds acceptable, but how many of us can afford the expensive products she reccommends. She frequently refers to recipes in book one, so I feel that one without the other is pretty useless.

These books should be presented to every student on graduation day so that at long last they can stop eating baked beans and pot noodles every day. Delia takes you through the learning to cook process easily and interestingly. I used both books to make the 'perfect' roast dinner and it was absolutely fab. The Shepherds Pie was delicious, I made enough for 4 and my boyfriend ate for 3! A must for all beginnner and not so beginner cooks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delia has done it again! 13 April 2000
Format:Hardcover
A great book, full of interesting but easy to follow recipes - I've not had one fail yet. Some old favourite dishes, and some more unusual. Great stuff, but its not doing my diet any good!
