I'm not a skillful cook, but I've always enjoyed the challenge (and occasional reward) of cooking recipies from books. Sadly, too often I seem to find that after a lengthy struggle with a glossy cookbook what emerges from the pan doesn't look anything like the photo promised it would. Often the instructions suggest that the food will start to turn certain colours at certain stages, or reach a certain consistency, and irritatingly things don't seem to go quite the way they should!
Not so with Great Fast Food. The instructions are clear, easy to follow, and accurate. I have had this book for over a year, and have had a close to 100% success rate - more often than not so successful that it has been possible to more or less recreate the photos in the book on my own plates at home.
Each recipie comes with an indication of how long it is likely to take to prepare (usually not more than about half an hour - as the name suggests), and even these timings seem to be spot on.
Thoroughly recommended for anyone who enjoys a little cooking, but doesn't want to spend too much time on it.

This book is an excellent addition to the kitchen - its well laid out with pics for every recipe, the ingredients are not way out and theres always something you can russle up with what you have in the pantry. I am not a vegetarian but if I was would recommend the book just for the vegetable recipes which are varied and delicious. Another good book from gary more for those who don't want to spend hours in the kitchen.

This book is great. It has alot of recipes that look delicious, the instructions are easy to understand, each one accompanied with a photo of the finished results.
Its one of the only cookbooks that I have actually used for its intended purpose and not as a 'good read'.
Finally the ingredients are not so complex that you are put off attempting a recipe in the first place!

I don't go a whole lot on celeb chefs and their publicity machines... However this book is first rate. The recipes are well ordered and include veggie sections. The recipes actually work, I've tried a few of them and they are first rate. The baked fish with a lime crust is just so easy as to make you think 'have I missed something here?'. Highly recommended from an old cynic.

Well we've bought cookery books before ... but this one we're eating better on a daily basis. (Health warning here) I'll let you know we are a little biased as we live not to far from one of his restaurants and love his style of cooking. Now we eat his style of cooking at home and its much cheaper and the quality comes close to a Good Food Guide Restaurant. About the book, it offers tasty and very easy to cook variety of meals laid out in an well indexed easy to use manner. Offering starters, main courses, desserts etc in a simple format. Its the best cookery book we've bought, the food is modern, tasty and easy to cook. Buy it, cook it and Enjoy!

I originally borrowed this book from the library and it was so good I just had to get my own copy. All the recipes are made in 30 minutes, many are less and most are around the 20 minute mark so this is a perfect book for midweek cookery and informal entertaining. Lots of simple and easy ideas with fairly standard storecupbard ingredients that don't break the bank. The recipes are laid out in simple steps and we're talking 3-6 steps to get your meal on the table!

The recipes are organised in an easy fashion so it's quick to find ideas and every recipe has a large full colour photo so you can see what you're aiming for. This is the first recipe book I have ever bought where I want to make virtually every dish. By the way the book does not include any recipes for desserts but in no way do I feel this detracts from its value.
