The cooks bible
on 28 February 2006
I was told to buy this book when I was just beginning as a chef in 1962,at a cost of 30 shillings ( £1.50), then half a weeks wages, it has been with me everywhere I have gone, it has all the ingredients to make cooking great, but it is not for the beginner, no quantities are mentioned, so it is guess work.
But it tells you what goes into all the classic dishes.
even over 100 ways to cook Potatoes.
I am proud to own it and it has been the best book I have ever owned. David Denham
