I have always been a fan of Raymond Blanc and have especially enjoyed this TV series because it gets back to what I believe cooking programmes should be about - the food! The book is a complete accompaniment to the series. Each recipe is reproduced with clear instructions as well as guidance notes to answer those questions you often find unanswered in a recipe. Needless to say the photography of the dishes is stunning.
What I like so much about Kitchen Secrets is that most of the recipes are within my skill range (I am just a keen amateur who enjoys good food) and this book enables me to create some great dishes. I can't wait to impress friends and family when I make the Chocolate Delice!
If you don't buy any other cooking book this year it won't matter if you have got Kitchen Secrets.
The book gives the answer to so many questions it is invaluable; especially to a self-taught cook like me.
The recipes are very easy to follow helped by the secrets and tips given and so far everything has looked as it does in the book.
The Lemon Cake is a dream, the Chicken with morels sublime and the strawberry crumble is a fabulous lighter version of my sons favourite pudding.
Definitely taken number 1 spot on my list of cookery books.
