Format: Hardcover
This book is really methodical in the way that it takes you through larder essentials, knife skills, and some techniques and basics that other books just assume that you know. The recipes are rated from one to three for difficulty, and by working through the book, i learned a lot of tips that helped me with other recipes. Now i can cook the three-star rated herb-encrusted turbot with chive veloute with my eyes shut!

The best thing about the book is the way that Neven writes the recipes. He always tells you which bits you can do the day before, or far in advance - so by organising myself as per his instructions, i found it easy to produce dishes that have a lot of separate components. I really felt like the book taught me how to break down complicated dishes - and i ended up impressing my friends! The chicken liver pate with fig jam is a must, but there are plenty of recipes in here that i now cook regularly. I'm recommending it to everyone...!

As a keen cook with hundreds of cookery books, magazines and computer files, I found it a little difficult physically/mentally adapting to a Kindle recipe book. Especially without the benefit of being able to use page numbers!! [Learn to use Bookmark to your advantage.] I doubt if I could have chosen a better book to 'learn on'. Neven Maguire uses no histrionics, either in his TV show or in his books, and presents surprisingly varied and interesting recipes. They are also easily achievable. He sets out to educate the would-be cook about equipment, including knives, about herbs, about storecupboard items and these sections help to make this an ideal cookery book for 'beginners'. [And a refresher course for the rest of us.]
