We've had a copy of this in our house since I was a little girl in the 1970s. Mum was a keen cook and often made dishes from this book for dinner parties. I used to love leafing through the sections and looking at the lovely photographs. Eventually all of the members of our close family had a copy and so we'd turn up at each other's houses and recognise the dishes on the table. My grandmother, mother and aunts and uncles had a copy, and when mum and dad separated, Dad took the copy with him! I inherited my nan's copy when she died, and now my daughters cook from it. I will buy them each their own copy when they leave home. Favourites include Chilled Lemon Flan and Crunchy-topped Fish Pie. The recipes and ingredients are pretty retro (who makes syllabub these days?) and the measures are all imperial, but instructions are easy to follow and adapt, and even if your efforts don't turn out as spectacular as the ones in the photos, you'll quickly find family favourite recipes of your own. Enjoy!

I needed to replace this Cook Book which was lost in the 2007 floods of this area.
Obviously I have looked about in Book shops selling new and used, Charity shops etc. on and off for the past few years.
I never gave Amazon a thought, do not know why, and then a friend suggested it.
I was thrilled. There was a great selection to choose from. So I did.

The book arrived within the next day or too in the condition as described - very good but with dust cover missing. I do not mind this. I am just so pleased to have the cook book back on my book self again.

I have used this book as a base for my family cooking for at least 30 years. I gave my daughter a copy years ago and this one was for my grand daughter. She is delighted with it. A very enduring gift.

I bought this book for my wife to replace one that had been lost in a fire It is slightly updated but just as good as the 1971 original copy.
Handy that the recipes are on one page and photographs to show what it 'should' look like. Plus handy tips at foot of page.
I would recommend this for basic cooking as well as Dinner Parties.
Give it as a gift to newly weds, etc and they will be using it for many years.
Mary Berry as good today as she was years ago.

I purchased this book as used, when it arrived it was in excellent condition, I was so pleased.
I would recommend this book to everyone who likes to do a little straight forward cooking which looks a little exciting.
