Brilliant!! buy it and you will not be disappointed.

Its rare to find a cook book that you would want to make every recipe in it . And this is it, a wonderful book that you will want to return to daily. It is, as it states in the title, easy, inspiring and very mindful of all of us on a budget.
I have bought Sophie Wright's other cook books before and have made many of her recipes, all of which have turned out just as described and even more amazing, as pictured. This one has only just arrived and I am already planning the weeks menus for the family. What is great is that most of the store cupboard ingredients most people will have already and are not extravagant to buy if you don't have them. Most importantly, the recipes appear to be very well balanced nutritionally and show this chefs extraordinary talent in producing food that looks great , tastes amazing, is healthy and is mindful of the pennies.
The book is beautifully presented, and set out. The way that you are talked through the recipes makes you feel as though the book has been written especially for you, it is down to earth and sensible. The photography and styling is so nice that is makes you feel hungry just looking at the pictures. The instructions are clear and easy to follow and whenever substitutes or alternative suggestions are made they are shown as little tips which I think are very helpful.
This is a cookery book that every household should have. So I shall be ordering more copies to give to friends and family for Christmas.
