About the Author
Lorraine trained at the leading Leiths School of Food and Wine before completing spells in some of the most renowned kitchens in the world, but, eager to work for herself and exercise her baking talents Lorraine couldn’t wait to start her own business, The Cupcake Bakehouse in London’s Covent Garden. Wide public attention beckoned after Baking Made Easy, her landmark BBC 2 TV series, introduced millions of viewers to her easy, impressive recipes. The book of the series went on to be a bestseller and was followed up by an even more popular book and series: Home Cooking Made Easy, making Lorraine the most successful debut cookery writer in Britain.

All of the recipes I have cooked so far were imaginative, flavoursome and looked fantastic when presented on a plate - this is a definite thumbs up for me as food presentation is always something I have struggled with! Although I am a keen meat eater, I was particularly impressed with the vegetarian dishes that Lorraine has created. I usually don't feel satisfied unless I've consumed some meat with my dinners but Lorraine's recipes have altered this feeling entirely - I would highly recommend the Butternut & Sweet Potato Lasagne!
For me this book has become something of a culinary bible and I would highly recommend it to anyone!
First of all, let me say that it is a lovely book, beautifully produced on glossy, heavyweight paper (unfortunately, some of the pages in my copy are creased but no matter).
Secondly, I would like to praise the exemplary way in which the recipes are laid out: clear, concise, excellent typography. Other cookbook publishers please take note and also, please see my review of Tessa Kiros's Greek cookbook which has the worst recipe typography I think I have ever seen. Food From Many Greek Kitchens
Thirdly, many of the recipes appeal to me and I think will appeal to lots of people. Plenty of modern stuff, several with chicken and fish, as well as some traditional dishes with a twist - something I particularly like to see.
So far, so good.
However, I do have a few buts about this book.
But #1: The photography is decidedly average with none of the verve and "make-me appeal" of the tv programme. Ms Pascale is ill-served by her publishers here; check out the Waitrose monthly food mag, Lorraine - that's the kind of "must-make-this" quality of photography you need - and deserve!
But #2: I haven't actually made any of the dishes yet - the book only arrived today! But looking at the length of time that is given to prepare some of these dishes, I would say the timings are unrealistic; it would take me the said 30 mins, or whatever, just to find all the various ingredients in the cupboard! NOW UPDATED, PLEASE SEE BELOW.Read more ›
That's why I like this book. The recipes I've tried so far work perfectly and they don't either cost the earth or take vast amounts of time. Her presentation tips are another appealing factor - she makes it very easy to put gorgeous looking plates together. The desserts in particular are well thought out - not surprising for someone who first made her culinary name in that area.
All told this is an attractive and useful book. I would strongly advise the enthusiastic home cook to look at it.
The best surprise I've had from Amazon recently was an impulse buy - the hilarious Sherlock Holmes and the Flying Zombie Death Monkeys. An unexpected delight - very funny.
