If you are a basic cook like me, then these recipes are ideal. However, if you like to cook complex fancy dishes then these may disappoint you.
The ingredients used are everyday items that most of us will have in our kitchens and the layout is very simple to use. The majority of the recipes I have tried have turned out extremely well and my friends have all commented on the books and borrow them!
Each book has a paperback wipe clean cover which is very practical. The majority have around 48 pages and the recipes are in alphebetical order with an index at the back. Obviously these are budget books and you will not find any fancy photographs, however, the food is simple and easy to make and is very tasty!
If like me you become addicted to these fab little books then be careful as a number of recipes are repeated throughout a number of books, but at this price who cares!
One helpful thing to know is, that as Amazon only stock a limited number of these books, there are contact details in the back of each book so you can order directly from Salmon books directly.
Well worth 5 stars.

Dozens of recipes are provided that give instructions on how to make classic English cakes, ranging from a basic Fruit Cake, Apple Cake, Cider Cake and Easter Cake to Raspberry Gateau, Swiss Roll and Whisky Cake. For a couple of pounds you are treated to inspirational recipes that are relatively easy-to-follow and provide a good, non-fussy teatime treat.
These two little books, forming part of a wonderful little series, are ideal "impulse buys" aimed at tourists and eager cooks alike, and are packed full of recipes and accompanied by a number of illustrations of past cottage and country life to help set the mood.
Many recipe books attempt to complicate basic recipes with lots of fripperies and, while they can have their place, it can sometimes be hard to find good, traditional recipes that focus on the ingredients rather than the techniques or visual styling. With these books you need to look no further.
One cannot praise these books and others in the series highly enough. Great little books, at a great little price, with a few quirky and esoteric recipes to boot. A cornerstone for every kitchen library.
