I only wonder that they don't advertise it more during the programme!

5.0 out of 5 stars i am CDWM's biggest fan, 12 July 2009
By 
Amazon Customer "hamble" (somewhere in west europe) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Come Dine With Me: Dinner Party Perfection (Paperback)
as i say, i am CDWM's biggest fan, and i just love this book.

contained are some winning recipes, most of which are easy to make, and a few of which i have tried myself. unfortunately, if the book were to contain all the recipes in the show (there are many series, and that doesn't include the celebrity version of the show), then the book would be many hundreds of pages in length (and even then it would be doubling up many recipes since it seems that at least one contestant in each competition serves up asparagus wrapped in parma ham).

i love the little asides, which i imagine in the voice of david lamb, that cantankerous voice-over, whose constituent contribution adds value more than the sum of its parts (does that even make sense? i think it's called "gestaldt").

get this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Christmas present, 30 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Come Dine With Me: Dinner Party Perfection (Paperback)
My sister bought me this book for Christmas as she knows I love the show. I have just made a starter, main course and dessert, which all turned out as was expected and I look forward to trying more recipes. The book also gives useful tips on hosting your own dinner party, table dressing etc. I intend contacting a few friends to try and arrange our own evenings, but possibly without the marking!

If you want the winning recipes for a 100 pages from Come Dine with Me in a glossy paperback .... then buy this book ......OR..... you can print them off and other praised dishes off for free on Channel Four's website...
.
As a complete dinner party virgin , I bought this book because I wanted advice on how to lay a table and what aperitifs to serve..... or if I should have some sort of entertainment.. but the contest is too simplistic, ...." Put the beers in the fridge... Don't leave the guests standing on the doorstep if they are early"..... all basic advice to any considerate host.....
...
I would have liked examples of what welcoming cocktails and which aperitifs to serve and photos of a good laid table both simple and elegant.
If you want more advanced advice on etiquette other than the lazy..... "Don't fall asleep on the sofa." buy another book........ .or buy it cheap and not for £12.99 at Channel Four shop or else you may be disappointed.

OK for the recipes but get another book if you want the dinner party not the common sense basics.......
