The mood of the book is "English Country Garden" as you may imagine from the olive cover. Baskets of mushrooms, avenues of trees and pots of delicious chicken saut?ed with onions, tomatoes and rosemary continue this theme throughout. Roast Chicken is presented on a well-worn cutting board and Crunchy Pistachio=Crusted Drumsticks are shown fresh from the oven, still on the baking sheet. Many of the pictures create more of a mood as in one page where pictures of raspberries, peaches, cherry tomatoes and a butterfly on a flower all mingle with scenes of a picnic a tea tray and more country garden flowers.
The element of "gourmet cooking" at home is very prevalent and with the exception of the slightly more complex "Chicken Medallions Stuffed with Wild Mushrooms in Marsala Sauce" and a few of the pastries, everything looks fairly straightforward. There are directions for making your own chicken stock or you could use a stock base paste mixed with water.

Most of the recipes use ingredients that are easy to find at your local store, like the Chicken Paprikash is made with onions, tomatoes, paprika, flour, cayenne, chicken stock, bell peppers and sour cream. The ingredient lists are on the left with numbered instructions on the right. Most of the recipes have a picture of the finished product on the adjacent page.
The SmartCook Collection makes Delia Smith's recipes highly accessible and with the variety of recipes and international flavors, there is a comforting dish for every season and mood.
