Comprehensive range of recipes,

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
James Martin is a chef whom I have often seen on TV and of whom I have often, but not always, thought that I might like to prepare certain of his recipes. Unfortunately recipes given on TV are not always complete or fully detailed and, unless also provided on-line somewhere which few ever are, you have no chance to obtain those details. Some of those same recipes or similar are provided here.
There are some that I know I will never prepare or eat due to specific aversions or intolerances, there are also some that I had long wanted to prepare. Now I can.
Within is a mix of starters, main courses and desserts - just the three main sections - with a common feature that they can all be prepared in around 20 minutes. With such fast preparation and cooking, this should be a boon for the otherwise busy person who is unwilling to spend hours preparing a single dish. With about 100 recipes on its pages, not an excessive number likely to confuse, all of which are well illustrated there should be sufficient for most. None appear to be beyond the scope of a moderately experienced cook and no especially exotic ingredients are included or specialist equipment required.
An excellent addition to the kitchen library and not just one for James Martin's many fans.
