for someone who doesn't cook, this book is a godsend! after my original copy fell apart from overuse, i was heart broken so i was relieved to find the updated version, packed with many more scrumptious recipes and glossy pictures. Its even better when one of your own creaions actually looks like the picture!!

The book arrived quickly and in excellent condition. It was a replacement for an earlier edition that met a sad fate. This is such a fantastic book for giving basic information (cooking times, cuts of meat etc) as well as interesting recipes that I would recommend it unreservedly to novice and experienced cooks.

My Mum had the original version of this so I grew up with it. When I got married the first thing I did was buy the newer version and it did not disappoint. The Chillie Con Carne recipe is fantastic as is the moussaka (I use potatoes instead of aubergines). It's a real family recipe book.

My mother gave me my first copy of this, with an extra sheet to convert to centigrade (as some modern ovens may use it) when I was 18. I have learned so much from it. It has recipes, that's a given, though that they're seasonal is now de rigeur again. The recipes are good, but that's not why the book is great.

The first section shows you the food. What a snape is, how to choose an artichoke, about a selection of cheeses, where a chateaubriand comes from in a cow. There are so many useful diagrams and snippets of information about buying food that are often left to chance, especially to a person staring out on their own.

The latter part of the book, after the recipes has cooking basics. Techniques, what they are and how to do them. Want to know what blind baking is, it's there, beating rather than folding, it's included. It shows how to carve meat, how to separate an egg yolk, literally from the basics of boiling an egg and making an omelette to roasting times for all kinds of meat.

I have other cookery books for recipes or history, but nothing will ever replace this in my kitchen.

I had had my original copy since early 70s and it was falling apart. Really pleased to see that it was still available on Amazon and now have the pleasure of this updated copy with its excellent recipes and photos.

Have only given this 3 stars, because although it is excellent I have the original readers digest publication which is falling to bits from over use.
I wanted to replace it and read the review which said it has slightly different recipes , which is great and it does have these. However, one of the reasons that I love the original one is the front pages conversion charts for cooker types Comparison temperatures are given) and conversion weights from kilos to pounds etc.
These charts are omitted , I suspect because there was a drive at the time that we should be totally metric.
It's a great book but the original is better for this reason and I will reorder the original as well once again. It's good to have both.
If you don't need or want the charts it's great. If like me you use the charts all the time don't be tempted get the original publication.

I actually bought this for my mother after her copy got water-damaged but I have my own copy too. In my family, we have been using this cookbook in our various households since it was published in the 70s. I use it for all the standard recipes like Victoria sponges and shortcrust pastry as well as for more adventurous cooking. There are also hundreds of fantastic day-to-day recipes, a guide to ingredients and special recipes for Chinese meals and Christmas. The best thing about this book is that all the recipes work. I have never had any recipe go wrong or be disappointing. I love this book. I was a cookery editor for many years and this is still the best cookery book I have ever seen or used. And that's saying something!
