Darina has a way of talking you through a recipe as if she is right there in the kitchen, and believe me there is a recipe for everything.
The book ranges from meat to veg and fruit to breads soups sauces jams and pickles and everything in between.
Many recipes have a mother recipe, for example pesto, and then variations.
My most favourite recipe so far has been the vanilla ice cream, and I have a phobia of mixing hot syrup with egg yolks, but Darina shows you how to stop it making sweet scrambled eggs.
A great buy for everyone.
My first copy of this book was the American edition which I picked up cheap. Since then, I've replaced this with the UK version because I love baking. This book is stuffed with great cakes, biscuits, and breads, but I have never been able to cope with the vagaries of cup measures.
My daughter and I had this book from the public library and at the end of the 3 weeks allowed (someone else was waiting for it) we decided we could not live with out it!!!!
It is a fantastic cookery book covering every aspect of home cooking - with Darina's little chatty bits before most recipes.
A really inspiring cook book.
