More About the Author

Carolyn Humphries was born and brought up in Somerset. Her grandmother was a professional cook and taught her all her skills. She produced her first Sunday lunch at the age of nine! She always aspired to become a cookery editor and writer and, after training as a journalist and a stint as a restaurant chef, became a cookery writer and then Deputy Cookery Editor on Woman magazine in the mid 1970s. Since then she has written for numerous magazines, been a consultant on many books and is the author of over 60 of her own - mostly cookery and health-related ones but also Really Simple English Grammar (recommended by John Clare in the Daily Telegraph), Modern Wedding Etiquette and Paint Your Life a Brighter Shade of Green (she feels really strongly about the environment). With a passion for good food, she cares deeply about what we eat and where it comes from. She is dedicated to promoting healthy eating, encouraging everyone to buy British, local produce, when possible, and also suports Fairtrade.

3.0 out of 5 stars Microwave cooking times 9 Aug 2013

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Unfortunately, this book seems to be a bit out of date - as only for a 700 microwave........ but for the price it is worth a read.......

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical and useful 18 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback
I find I use this book more than any other for microwave cooking. Rather than fiddly complex recipes, it gives straightforward information on cooking a whole host of items. For example, I never thought to poach fish or cook frozen peas in the microwave but they work well. Of course there is some trial and error to find the exact cooking times/powers for your individual microwave, but overall well worth having a copy to hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Needed this one 5 April 2013
By D. West - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The more info on times and settings the more things I can learn to cook. All I had seen for years were for 600-700 watt microwaves. They don't help with a 1250 watt microwave
