5.0 out of 5 stars Its a treasure 18 Jun 2008
By deeda
I have owned this book since 1995. I own lots of cook books..some of them just sit on a shelf after I browse through them. This book is falling apart because I use it so often. I have tried most of the recipes and they all work! The instructions are clear and to the point and the food looks just like the pictures. (In fact, any other "great" recipies I have stolen from friends are written into or stapled onto the pages of this book...so I know where to find them! To me that proves that I cannot live without this book!)
The recipes are grouped under occasions, but I mix and match them. There are also lots of tips for organising the event whether it be a wedding lunch for 150 or friday night dinner for 6. Buy it, its brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of those "Must have" Books 17 Aug 2008
"Good Housekeeping" Cooking for Crowds: Recipes for Every Occasion, from 6 to 100 We have had this book ever since it was published. We do quite a lot of entertaining all year round and have found it invaluable. Have also lent it to friends who borrow it from time to time. Excellent if you want something not too difficult but looks good on the plate and impressive at the same time.

Not as good as I thought it would be. I was expecting to see recipes for cooking large quantities of the different foods - instead, they just tell you to make more of the original dish. Any one could have worked that out!

If you can find a copy of this book buy it! It is invaluable not just for the recipes but also for the essential information on quantities and how to manage cooking on more than an everyday scale. Nothing seems too daunting and the recipes really work. I cooked for 90 people for my daughter's wedding, using this book as my bible, and was still smiling at the end of it!
