I've been a huge fan of Ms Hay's cooking for the last 7 years. Not only her cooking is simple and easy to do, but the taste is delicious and I never heard anyone complaining when I used one of her recipes. I bought this book with my eyes closed - and I did well as I was not disappointed. The menus presented are easy and original enough to have guests with a little plus on your side. The funny bit is that nothing is weird, no strange mixture of taste, but she's still able to be original. A definite buy - especially for people who, like me, love to eat but have little time on their hands.

I confess to loving all of Donna's books. This one is a little different in that she puts the starters, mains and desserts together for you - which doesn't stop you from mixing and matching anyway - and she gives you suggestions for different kinds of parties which is very useful. Great pictures and with delicious, easy-to-follow recipes. Another Donna classic!
