It is so good to read recipes that make you want to leap into the kitchen and start cooking. The recipes in this book have Bill's usual style of tasty food brought about by very simple means. I have the feeling that I could just get a couple of them on the go and still have time for some leisure activitities. In fact in this case, I should say 'other leisure activities'.
I love the photos in these 'how to cook' books of Delia's (3 in all) - they encourge the inexperienced and the experienced to get into the kitchen. The recipes are great and explanatory for new cooks. They are a welcome gift to the new chef.
