5.0 out of 5 stars A more than pleasant surprise, 28 April 2010
This review is from: Good Food: 101 Simple Suppers(BBC Good Food) (Paperback)
This was the first book in the 101 series that I purchased and I'm so glad that I did. I use cooking as part of my medical rehabilitation as folling the instructions helps me to become more logical. I have a massive head injury so my ability to be logical has been affected. I started cooking one night a week from a recipe to try to teach my brain that while you might what to eat peas with your meal you don't often start them off right at the beginning (unless you want VERY mushy burny peas!), and also that you can substiute some things for others sometimes (but I'm still working on the skill). I've got quite a range of recipe books by different authors but some of them assume that you a) have a degree in cooking, b) run a restaurant, and c) have all the time/cash in the world to play with.

These books are brilliant. They are small (so not too heavy for my disabled arms to carry/read), easy to follow (so don't need all those Michelin stars or whatever), have a photo of the finished product (so I can see if I've missed something obvious out), and give amazing results (which is good for my ego and stomach). I've never had a recipe go Wrong from one of these books nor had one that was 'alright but I wouldn't do again'.

Btw - the Parmesan chicken is so fantastic I'd cook double the quantity and have the bit you don't eat hot cold with a salad the next day. If you don't have the cream crackers it says you can use corn flakes, well we used so leftover oatiflakes and the result was amazingly good.
