More About the Author

JOSCELINE DIMBLEBY has been one of Britain's most popular food writers for over thirty years. Her cookery books have sold well over 2 million copies in the UK alone, and been translated into many languages. She has published 17 cookery books and was cookery correspondent for the Sunday Telegraph newspaper for 15 years.

After nearly 30 years of writing cookery books Josceline made a complete change with a biographical family mystery spanning 100 years, which included her great grandmother's secret relationship with the Pre-Raphaelite artist Edward Burne-Jones and her beautiful daughter's mysterious death 'of a broken heart'. A PROFOUND SECRET was first published in 2004 to great critical acclaim.

ORCHARDS IN THE OASIS followed in 2010, an autobiographical book combining her greatest passions in life, densely illustrated with photographs. The book won the Kate Whitman Award for food and travel writing in June 2011.

Most recently Josceline re-wrote, revised and added to her bestseller during the 1980's recessions, MARVELLOUS MEALS WITH MINCE published September 2012.

Josceline continues to travel widely, has written on travel and food for various publications, gives live talks and contributes to television and radio programmes.

Product Description

Review

'Josceline's recipes are personal, imaginative, exquisite; her stories of the extraordinary worlds they evoke and her fascinating life are enchanting' for Orchards in the Oasis --Claudia Roden

'One of this year's most endearing books about food' for Orchards in the Oasis --The Daily Mail

'One of Britain's best-loved cookery writers, Josceline Dimbleby has sold more than 2 million recipe books' --BBC Good Food magazine

“The recipes for chopped-up beef, pork, veal, chicken, turkey and fish are absolutely rock-solid.  Marvellous.” 29th August 2012, Metro

‘Josceline Dimbleby’s Marvellous Meals with Mince was so popular it was reprinted eight times between 1982-89.  Freshly revamped, re-written and added to for this age of austerity, this bestselling recipe book is back and better than ever.  From hearty pies, crunchy croquettes and delicate mousses, Josceline shows us how to whip up meals with mince, in very fine style.’ October 2012, Country & Town House

Back in the 70s and 80s, Sainsbury's produced an excellent series of small paperback cookbooks intended to be sold from beside the tills. One of my treasures is a shelf of these little gems in the kitchen, and indeed I now see that I have three copies of one of these titles; Marvellous meals with mince. No doubt I lent copies out, forgot who had them, and decided to replace; at 75p a pop it didn't exactly break the bank.

Josceline's book, A Taste of Dreams, was the book which really got me going in the kitchen. She introduced me to the concept of rose water, of using spices like cumin and coriander to zhoozh up weekday dishes like cottage pie. She spent her childhood in the Middle East, and these flavours were as standard in her cookery palate as salt and pepper are in ours. If you watched Nigella earlier in the week, you'll have seen her "meatzza"; a pizza made with a base of minced meat not dough, and the usual cheese and tomato on top. Well, the credit for that should go to Jossy. She had a recipe for quiche which had a tart case made out of well-seasoned minced meat, baked off, and then the vegetable filling cooked inside it.

My copy of the revamped MMWM arrived yesterday, and tonight for supper M and I are going to have the chicken roulade: a large rich single pancake baked in the oven and then wrapped around a filling of minced chicken, and cooked again. No minced chook in M&S today, so I'm taking the filling down a slightly different route with minced pork and lardons instead.

One of the Amazon reviews I've read said that the writer was buying 12 copies as Christmas presents. Please be assured that there'll be 12 very happy people come Christmas Day.

For years, this was my go-to book for feeding my family well and economically. It finally became so battered and stained as to be something of a health hazard, so I binned it and have regretted that ever since. Now I can have a lovely new hardback! Grateful to this week's issue of "The Lady" for mentioning the re-issue.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book because as a soon to be first time mum I thought a book about mince would be particularly useful given that I remember eating so much of it when I was young and my mum always having Tupperware pots full of it in the freezer.
When reading the introduction and flicking through the pages I kept thinking of people who would like the recipes... my mum and aunties who remember the book from first time around, my brothers and sisters who have young children and my cousins at university living on tight budgets. I know it's a bit early to be thinking about Christmas but I've just bought 12 further copies as presents. I'm really pleased with them - such nice pressies and such a bargain! Also, along with other various meats there are even dishes with chicken and fish - it never occurred to me to mince either. This is a great book, I would definitely recommend!

This book was bought as a gift for a young girl starting out on her own house - I've had my copy for years and used lots of the recipes - a Godsend.

I was brought up on this book - Jossy is my Mum. It is a brilliant thing for anyone raising a family on a budget or sending a child away from home for the first time. Despite first being published in 1982 the recipes are so modern. I recently cooked a version of the cheese stuffed meatballs in here on BBC's Saturday Kitchen. It is packed with tasty, cheap dishes.

I still have my copy of the original - well used, stained, and at the forefront of my excessively large collection of cookbooks. However, flicking through this one,I loved the way she has updated some of the recipes, and the new ones are interesting too. Atlas Mountain Soup is better than ever. Have already ordered more for friends. Brilliant.
