5.0 out of 5 stars yum yum, 7 May 2011
This review is from: Rosemary Shrager's Absolutely Foolproof Classic Home Cooking (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I was all prepared to find this book boring and a little old fashioned if im honest as ive always felt Rosemary Shrager was stuck somewhat in a time warp where food was lavish and ladies wore corsets and had no opinion :-) i ordered this book out of curiosity and simply as i love to collect cook books many of which im sad to say are dusty and unused.
I could not have been more wrong, this book is superb and shows her in a whole new light, the book is simply gorgeous to read/look through, the pictures of the finished article are enticing and look simply delicious and part of the pull of this book for me is that in certain parts you are treated to not just a couple of " how to" photos but whole step by step photo strips which are so simple and easy to follow.

This book has all you need if you want to learn how to cook the basics and will certainly show you how to change these recipes to expand your cooking repertoire.

you will find simple recipes for things like mayonnaise, victoria sponge and roasts but with full chapters showing meals and treats with different degrees of difficulty i would be suprised if you couldnt find something you are eager to cook.

the chapters include salads and dressings, stocks and soups,white sauces,emulsion sauces,eggs,pancakes and other batters,souffles,terrines and pates,rice,pasta,grilling and frying,roasts,casseroles and stews,vegetables,pastry, custards,meringues,cakes and quick breads and breads.

I'm fussy with cook books but this one really made me want to get straight out into the kitchen, the recipes are simple and easy to follow and i think really the title says it all, its foolproof.
an investment cook book that every collection should have no matter how old or young you may be !! this cook book will not be gathering dust in my house only sticky marks and stains and from constant use !
