5.0 out of 5 stars Secrets to great home cooking, 11 Nov 2010
This review is from: Tana's Kitchen Secrets (Hardcover)
The recipes in this book bears in mind that most of us live a very busy life and do not have the opportunity that often to spend hours and hours on planning, shopping and preparing for our meals. But, nonetheless, that does not mean that we want to sacrifice on the taste, presentation, and nutritionally nourishing food.

The recipes in this book are of good wholesome dishes that anyone would like to prepare and eat any day of the week. Tana's secrets to achieving this is by ensuring that you have some essential pieces of kitchen appliances/utensils and a well supply of herbs, tinned tomatoes, vegetables, flour, cheese, frozen fruits and so on. Also she encourages that you can use her recipes as a guide and can alter it if perchance you have forgotten to buy, run out or cannot find an ingredient that she has listed.

Each chapter in the book is opened with Tana's secrets on how to choose the best ingredients, how to prepare and cook it. Whilst each recipe is accompanied with a tip of some sort, for instance in the Shepherd's pie recipe on page 20 Tana gives advice on how to ensure that your mash is perfect every time. This is handy if you are feeling nervous about cooking the dish or a beginner to cookery bliss and need that extra guidance or assurance that you are on the right path.

All of the recipes is this book are not difficult to prepare and cook, so you will not be disappointed with the end result as it would be full of flavour and tasty. I for one love several of the recipes in this book i.e. parmesan chicken drumsticks, really rustic shoulder of lamb, Indian lamb chops, turkey masala kebabs, rump steak flavoured with anchovy and garlic, Moroccan fish tagine, beef and aubergine rigatoni bake with tomato and basil, Eton mess.
