4.0 out of 5 stars A Must Own Recipe Book, 31 July 2011
This review is from: Perfect: 68 Essential Recipes for Every Cook's Repertoire (Hardcover)
OK, I admit it, I love to cook and I love to get my hands on decent recipes to turn the mundane task of making a meal into an extravaganza for the taste buds. Yet the major problem with a lot of the books out there is that there's a large percentage of recipes that you really either won't try and really don't attract your attention enough to make you want to try them.

What this title by Felicity does is trawl through recipes from a multitude of established books and chefs and brings the tastiest to the reader in one easy to access title. Add to this a whole host of everyday recipes and it's a title that will get more than a little use. Recipes include all sorts of dishes that I want to make better and whilst some are simplistic, it's the key to getting them right that has eluded many a home cook. If you want to know how to obtain that top notch crackling on your Pork Joint, that's here, you want great Yorkshire Puds, yep that's there as well. Your Roasties are failing, not any more. There's also a section for desserts, a section on vegetables as well as many other recipes that you really can't afford to turn down.

Finally add to all this glory a wonderful introduction that gives you the basic items required for any kitchen, some that are useful but not essential as well as key ingredients that make sense to have in stock (and we're not talking Nigella's pantry that has about £5K worth of food items in) such as flour, eggs, bread as well as other basics that most people have and the whole thing is a title that you can learn along with as well as pass along to the next generation.

All in, this book is not only useful but for me, perhaps the best cuisine title that I now own as I can ensure that the basics I create are to the best of my ability which will not only make the meal something to celebrate but also turn the everyday into something that you can't wait to enjoy. I really am inspired to go and create something shortly and with this little gem in hand and whilst I have an early print its ring bound which will keep it all the easier to reference, the only thing I would change would be to get the pages laminated so that any food spills can be wiped clean. With luck hopefully the publishers will look into something like that for future editions.
