Have tried several of the recipes, they are all easy to do even for my non cooking student daughter. Love the simplicity of them, the taste isn't bad either. Would recommend to all those, skilled, or not.
This is the first 'GoodFood' cook book I have purchased after having heard several good reviews from friends and family. The book starts with a list of handy conversions which I as a beginner cook found rather helpful with each recipe having a colourful photograph to accompany it. The recipes themselves are very easily made with clear instruction and mostly relatively cheap.
The book contains Quite a vast variety of different tastes and flavours broken up into several sections including, speedy soups, low-fat ideas, hearty favourites special soups for entertaining, tasty sides and lunchtime snacks. With something for even the fussiest eaters (my sister) and a good way of getting that all important 5-a-day. As with all books of this size, I do find the size a little of putting having a preference for larger books but this having been said means less counter space is wasted.
I would recommend this book to people looking for healthy alternatives and cooks of any skill.
Ordered this book as a gift, but when I was looking through it I found lots of recipes in there I really fancied trying! I made a note of a few and last week made the savoury potatoe, cheese and rosemary bread - it was really nice. Recipes are easy to follow with ingredients that you can find easily in a supermarket. The only downside is the book is quite small (A5 kind of size) so it didn't sit well on my cook book stand or lay flat very well. Having said that its a great buy with a good mix of vegetarian and meat dishes.
