Of course, I have bought lots of other cooked books over the years and love cooking, but I've always got Delia on the shelf. My favourites - Omelette Savoyade, Fisherrman's Pie, Cheese Sauce, Christmas Pudding.
Delia discusses kitchen equipment, shows techniques such as jointing a chicken, temperatures, dealing with fish and meat, cakes and jams etc. The recipes are generally straightforward and work. As you learn, you can use other resources to complement, such as the Internet. What this book does is give you the confidence to develop skills and a reference manual when you need it.
If you are or know someone who is just staring out in the culinary world, this is THE book to get them. If you are a competent cook, you probably already have one. Think of it as a cooks comfort blanket.
My late mother used to regularly use the book for the Christmas Cake recipe :D and well one year the book disappeared :/
When I came across a copy on Amazon, at such a price point, it was a no brainer :D
I am more than happy to be reunited with this old friend :D
There's a full index at the back, for recipes and ingredients, and the whole book is divided into ingredient-based chapters, making it easy to find what you want. It is hardbound, and with a thick glossy (wipe clean) paper dust jacket. It is built to last, which is a good thing because my copy gets plenty of use.
