Does what it says on the tin. Easy recipes, telling you how to make good quality food, I'd particularly recommend the fish chowder. If you want hundreds of recipes with expensive exotic ingredients don't buy this book, if you want a selection of easy to prepare , quality food then this is the book for you .
This book is almost identical with the 16 rules of self development ( tells you that you don't need self help books.. It seems all that's been done is telling exactly the same stuff under slightly different heading ( plus remember to exercise )
