I was given this book by my mother in law and its the best present she has ever given me. It has tried and tested recipes most of them had been supplied by ordinary people, so theres nothing too complicated. Loads of real comfort food recipes fantastic cake recipes (that even I can make). If you love good honest British food then you'll love this book. I recently lent the book out to a friend and she loved it, I almost had to prise it out of her fingers as she loved the jam recipes. I've tried to buy her the book as a present but its out of print. What a shame. If you ever see this book, buy it! you won't regret it

If you want a book filled with pretty colour plates for each recipe, this is not for you. But if you seriously want to produce good, tasty and varied food that easy to cook with receipes that are easy to follow, this is the book for you.
When my daughters leave home, they won't leave without this book (when, hopefully, it comes back into print!) Recipes from good, wholesome stews with dumplings, soups and pies to authentic Indian curries. Cakes, breads, pastires and ice-creams - all really simple recipes to follow from starters through to puddings.
For me, what makes the book is that the recipes come from many differencet sources, not just one cook/chef, giving it huge variety and tastes, making it my first book that comes to hand when I'm stuck for what to cook for a change or just need a reminder on a recipe I have been cooking for years.
This hardback edition was first produced in 1984 and I hope it continues to be reprinted for many years to come - my copy is so old and well used, you can almost taste each recipe as you turn the pages!

Format: Hardcover
I have a lot of cookery books but this one is exceptional. It is so useful, often with several different recipes for the same dish so you can try variations; and there are recipes for absolutely every occasion. I've never had a recipe come out wrong, following this book (which is more than can be said for some of the "Celebrity Chef" recipes that clearly haven't been properly tried and tested).

By far the best cookery book for the Credit Crunch and the return to proper home cooking, buy this one first. You won't regret it. Oh - and do give the Somerset Apple Cake a try, you will thank me for the tip!

**HINT** although out of print, I have managed to pick up 2 copies of this in Charity Shops so there are clearly plenty of them around.

My mum used to make recipes from this and they became household favourites. So much so, that my now "grown up" sisters actually fight over this book...so I bought my own! It has tonnes of recipes from different people (all tried and tested by the makers of the book several times before they made it in) and some of the recipes are truly delicious. I've yet to make all of them, was thinking about working backwards and starting with sweets hahaha

Format: Hardcover
The book is a traditional style cook book with absolutely every kind of recipe a normal might eat as well as a few interesting ones to try. It's basic, easy to follow and full of good food to cook at home. It may not be endorsed by a celebrity, be include any fad diets or have twiddly arty-farty restaurant food. But it is the perfect addition to a family kitchen.

A British classic. Every serious cook should have a copy. A worthy product from the Golden Age of Yorkshire Television and regional programmes!

I have more cookery books than any other kind, but this is now one of my favourites. Full of good farmhouse recipes - even beers, wines and cordials. Superb.
