My new bible,
This review is from: Delia's Complete How To Cook: Both a guide for beginners and a tried & tested recipe collection for life (Hardcover)
I'm no culinary angel but I can whip up a meal with relative ease. However, I felt like I could do with a really good book of basics. There are still moments when I'm not sure of the time difference between a soft boiled and a medium boiled egg. At least I don't have a to ring my mother anymore and then suffer her pearls of wisdom for 30 minutes as she informs me on how to make the perfect egg...by which point, I'm too hungry to be bothered and end up grabbing some cereal instead!!
A great book which I know I will be referring to in years to come. I have only had it for 2 days and already done 3 recipes from it. Much more than a recipe book.
