Book Description


TV favourite James Martin is back with another collection of brilliant recipes.

This is the book James Martin fans have been waiting for. Recipes you need, like the ultimate beef burger, perfect pies, a foolproof risotto and puddings to die for. With James's help, you can master them all.

Masterclass is the ultimate collection of James Martin recipes; the ones that everyone should know how to cook. James takes classic dishes and much-loved favourites and makes them simpler than ever, and even more delicious, adding some exciting tweaks and twists of his own.

Learn how to master James' recipes for beloved classics such as Cheese Soufflé, Beef Bourguignon and traditional Bakewell Tart, as well as his take on international dishes such as Onion Bhajis, Saffron Gnocchi, Bang Bang Chicken and Brioche French Toast.

Alongside the recipes, you'll find manageable step-by-step guides to essential kitchen skills, such as how to fillet a fish, how to tie a joint for roasting and the best way to poach an egg. So, if you want to take your cooking to the next level, James Martin will help show you how.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'Make your home cooking easier'.... 15 Feb. 2012
2011 Collins/Hardback edition.

A useful mix of recipes where one finds old favourites e.g. 'Curry', 'Lasagne' and 'Classic Sponge', mingling with James's own recipes, e.g. 'James's Shepherd's Pie', 'Proper Fish & Chips' & 'The Best Beef Burgers in the World', along with the more unusual, such as 'Lamb Rack and Black' & 'Whisky-Marinated Salmon with Beetroot'.

From the introduction:

'...I've considered the many skills, techniques and bits of knowledge that I've picked up throughout my career and have gathered the best of them together for you in this book. Inside these covers you will find the very basics, including step-by-step instructions for filleting fish, jointing chicken and mastering that classic white sauce. I also share the best recipes and nuggets of information that I've absorbed during my travels around the world.....'
But British food also remains close to his heart with reference made to the importance of local and seasonal produce...'looking after our suppliers and producers by giving them our custom - because once they are gone, the void will be a long time filled and our cooking won't be as successful....'

James adorns the cover of masterclass, which opens to reveal 224 quality matt pages, split over main chapters:

1. Soups, Stews & Pies (pg 10-30)
2. Fish (pg 32-60)
3. Poultry (pg 62-84)
4. Red Meat (pg 86-104)
5. Pork (pg 106-116)
6. Pasta & Grains (pg 118-134)
7. Vegetarian (pg 136-148)
8. Salads (pg 150-164)
9. Sides (pg 166-184)
10. Bread, Cakes & Desserts (pg 186-216)

sandwiched between an introduction and an index.

3.0 out of 5 stars Master Class 12 July 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A little disappointing. The title suggested to me that I was about to be given the kind of tips that would improve my cooking and baking, but the tips were fewer than expected and to me it was yet another recipe book. I am a fan of James, and enjoy his programmes on TV because he does actually explain what he is doing and gives advice too.
