More About the Author
From the Back Cover
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!

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.
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.
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.
