Master chef eat your heart out!, 1 Mar. 2005
This is a great all rounder. Plenty of recipes to suit every taste and best of all quick and simple to prepare no matter how many you are cooking for. I am a self proclaimed novice in the kitchen so when my Husband's family came round for lunch jokes were flying about what I would manage to come up with. But this Classic 1000 title soon bought about a change of tune and by the end of the day everyone was singing my praises. The beauty of the book is that the recipes seem sophisticated and a challenge at first glance... but actually they are very easy. The instructions are well ordered and laid out with enough detail to explain everything clearly for those of us who are not master chefs! I am now confident aabout my next venture and have bought 2 further titles in the Classic 1000 range, which have an equally user friendly format!
