5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate cooking book 25 Nov 2008
Format:Hardcover
Totally agree with the 2 previous reviewers. Best cooking book I've ever come across. I'm a beginner cook and I find most cookery books are nice to look at but not very easy to follow. But this book is loaded with practical and delicious-looking recipes. The DVD contains short clips of basic cooking techniques, probably more useful for beginners. The pocket shopping list booklet is very handy when you go shopping, all ingredients and quantities for each recipe in one small book. I think experienced cooks will also enjoy the great variety of recipes covering everything from starters and snacks, mains and sides and cakes and desserts. Well recommended - I'm ordering another one for my niece!

5.0 out of 5 stars the ONLY cooking book 1 Oct 2010
Format:Hardcover
Had this book for about a year. It's packed full of classics and more adventurous recipes without being de rigueur. This is the only book we refer to again and again.
Honestly, you could cook for years with this book alone and not grow tired. We have 3 children in their 20's and when (dear lord when!)they have their own homes this
book will be a feature in all of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book 8 Nov 2008
Format:Hardcover
Really love this new cookbbok. I have been looking for a book that covers the basic to the more complex of standard recipes. The photos and directions are really clear and simple. The edition I got has a handy pantry list so you can keep it in your handbag and when you decide to cook something -you have all the ingredients listed. A very useful idea and helpul. Thoroughly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something for everyone 6 Oct 2009
Format:Hardcover
This is a great book containing a mixture of simple through to more complex meals. There is someting for everyone. There are photos of every recipe which i find useful when picking my meal. I also like the information regarding freezing the leftovers which is helpful if you are only cooking for one person. Would highly recommend this book to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars the cooking book 7 April 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Wanted this book for a while, but did not want to pay full price, Amazon price very good. Book is perfect for experienced cooks' or amateurs. The dvd covers basics, while the cookbook offers a good range of recipes, what I liked was that the recipes are not over fussy, and there are a good selection of home favourites included.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Cooking Book 20 Oct 2008
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is the ultimate modern cookery book. It has a recipe for every occasion and each one has an attractive photo and clear, concise instructions. It is suitable for the complete beginner and for someone like myself who has been cooking for a family for 25 years but wants to know more. If you only own one cookery book, make it this one!!

5.0 out of 5 stars the cooking book 19 Dec 2009
Format:Hardcover
Excellent purchase. Easy to follow instructions and good pictures. I looked at the book in a book shop first and it had a CD with it. So that explained why the price was more than amazon. It does not have a cd but really you dont need one so I was happy to pay the lower price with amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have 28 Jan 2009
Format:Hardcover
Wonderful cookery book with recepies from all around the world. Easy to follow and amazing results. The range of ideas is immense, from tasty starters to delicios deserts. The book is ideal for anyone who enjoys cooking and wants to learn more. The main meals are split into different categories so that you can easily select from vegetarian meals, one pot meals, low fat dishes or many more categories. The instructions are so simple to follow, and every meal I have made following the guide has turned out beautifully. I highly recommend the cheesecake.
