Product Description

Book Description

If you don't consider yourself a cook, this book is for you!

From the Publisher

If you don't consider yourself a cook, this book is for you!
It tells you how to boil an egg - and how to poach, scramble or fry it; it tells you how to prepare vegetables; it tells you about different meats; it tells you how to get all the elements of a meal ready to eat at the same time.

In fact, it tells you all the things that other cookery books assume you know.

More than that, it takes you from the very basic basics right through to the mysteries of "Sunday Lunch". So, although most of the recipes are designed to feed one, there is scope for entertaining too, as you get more confident about your abilities in the kitchen.

For those cooking on their own for the first time - for whatever reason - it is the cookery adviser at your elbow.

24 of 26 people found the following review helpful By Gary Nicklin VINE VOICE on 21 April 2005
Format: Paperback
I was given this book as a housewarming present when I first moved out of my parents' house about 15 years ago. I think the person that gave it to me thought it was a bit of a joke, due to the title. However, this is a brilliant book for someone that needs to cook simple, tasty meals for one or two. The book is full of useful tips and the recipes are easy to follow. The spaghetti bolognaise is one recipe that I remember with much fondness. It was a firm favourite when friend or family came round.
A few years later I became vegetarian and subsequently purchased "No Meat for Me Please" by the same author, which is just as good for those of us that don't eat meat.

Excellent - the first cookery book i have found that explains how to cook without assuming any prior knowledge or experience. Well written and easy to understand.
It gave me the confidence to try and learn to cook, rather than total reliance on processed and pre-packed foods, and I learned the taste of real food.

I was given this book as a present. It's small size belies it's usefulness. As well as complete meal ideas and recipes its also great when you just need to know how to cook a particular vegetable or make a sauce. Written in a down to earth style with no weird ingredients required - it's better than Delia !!!!

A SAVIOUR, BASIC COOKERY HANDBOOK, 27 Sep 2005
By Colin Neville (United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
As a Type 1 Diabetic since 1963, blood testing, correct Insulin dosage and correct quantities of sensible foods are my first daily basic essentials for continuation of life. When my ex-wife announced an unexpected divorce in 1990, I had to learn very quickly, how to cook; in order to survive. This book was my saviour. It teaches the rudiments for the preparation and cooking of: vegetables, meats, poultry and fish, in an easy to understand no frills, no nonsense manner. It recommends portion sizes/weights, cooking times and temperatures. It also suggests which vegetables to accompany the subject meat, poultry or fish dish. A first class basic cookery book. Fifteen years later, I still find myself referring back to this easy to use superb, basic, cookery handbook. Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
This book is fantastic for anybody who's suddenly having to cook for themselves, even if they're quite competent in the basics already. I still refer to this book regularly some 12 years after I first got it - and yes, thank you, I can cook pretty well by now!
As well as how to boil an egg, there are plenty of useful ideas for people on a budget, and some good ideas for spicing up old (and sometimes boring) favourites, like shepherd's pie.
If you're looking for a good first cook book written in a friendly, non-patronising style (it was originally written for the author's son when he went to university) then this book is for you.

Format: Paperback
This is a fairly simple but extremely useful book and very much a worthwhile addition to your library.

There are lots of quick and easy recipes and they a lot more varied than you might think - because of that, there's pretty much something for just about every taste. It's just a pity there are no pictures, but even so, it is worth buying.

And at the price, it's a bargain - you can't really go wrong with this.

This book is great for first time cooks but also for the more seasoned cook to be reminded of a long-lost cooking method. Now buying this for my sister who had to ringme to find out how to make scrambled egg for her and her baby boy!
