Book Description

1 July 2004 Classic 1000
You're going to have to fend for yourself. And you've probably never had to cook in your life. Without some great ideas you aren't going to be eating as well as you do at home - right? Here you have 1000 brilliant ideas to feed you without expecting much skill on your part. And they're all very inexpensive. This student recipe book is unique. All the recipes are organised into batches. For the first batch you only need a knife and a chopping board - tasty meals with no effort. Then nothing more than a kettle and a toaster, and onwards and upwards to slap-up meals to impress and share with friends. These recipes don't need scales or measuring spoons either - everthing works with an ordinary spoon and a mug. This is the only cookery book that you need to eat well when you've got practically nothing to work with! P.S. There's plenty for vegetarians too!

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really good buy!! 12 Aug 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
When I went to uni i found this book really useful! There are so many different recipes (that are all really easy to follow and make) so I didn't have to be stuck with the same boring meals all the time. There are some really good ideas in here, either for students or a novice cook that needs some simple meals to start them off. Recommended!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Too many ingredients in some recipes. 25 Aug 2008
Format:Paperback
I bought this book quite a while ago but have only recently got the cooking bug! A great variety of recipes, nicely separated into different chapters according to what eqipment you need to make them, e.g. one pan, 2 pans + grill, whole kitchen, etc.

A few complaints though, I would prefer some simpler recipes, needing fewer ingredients, so there is no need to buy things you would only use once or twice. Also, there are no pictures in this book, which I like to have so I know my food looks like it should, without having to rely on just the recipe instructions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! 20 Mar 2006
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is a wonderful, wonderful book. I hated cooking until my aunt gave it to me for Christmas, and although I'm not at uni yet, I use it all the time. The recipes are incredibly simple, but taste amazing. I can't recommend it enough!

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy cooking 26 Oct 2006
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I decided that it was time to forego frozen food and start cooking a bit myself - after living on my own for two years - this was one of the books I picked up. I'm not a gourmet chef. My dorm-room kitchen is definitely subpar when it comes to size and facilities. Yet, I managed to produce edible, and tasty, dishes with the help from this book.

Some of the recipes I tried were a failure - perhaps due to the fact that my Scandinavian palate wasn't accustomed to some of the more "exotic" British dishes? But the majority of them went down without a hitch, and I've found myself making the brown onion soup over and over - as it freezes and can be reheated quite easily.

My favourite part about this book, however, is actually the size of the recipes. A large number of them are meant for one, which I like, living on my own. But if I want to cook for friends, there are also several that are meant for more than one. :)

It's a pity that it is a paperback, as some of the pages of my copy came loose, from overuse. But that's the way it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy recipe book for all ages 9 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback
Huge variety of simple to prepare dishes using minimal equipment. My student days are long over but I often dip into this book for ideas because most of the recipes use everyday ingredients, most of which I already have, so no special trips to the shops and no unusual ingredients that cost a lot and aren't used up. Great book to have with you when caravanning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly superb 24 Sep 2006
Format:Paperback
***
This recipe book is a superb addition to anyone's culinary library - clearly not every recipe will suit every person but it is inconceivable that you would not find a significant number of useful recipes in here and even if you found just one nugget, then considering the price, it would be well worth it.

The variety of recipes in the 1000 series is simply staggering - to say you are stuck for choice is an understatement.

Ok, so there are no photographs but against that, the books don't cost a fortune either and they are compact.

You really cannot go wrong with any of these recipe books and when you consider they cost little more than 1 issue of pretty much any food magazine, well, they truly are an absolute bargain.

Buy this one, buy them all - you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Student ideas 9 July 2009
Format:Paperback
I'm very impressed with this cookbook, it starts as a complete novice and I mean complete, you could easily give this book to a university student going away from a very cossetted home for the first time secure in the knowledge that they would be able to make themselves something hot and then as you progress through the book it introduces more complex recipies and equipment. Invaluable.
