Another wonderfully mouth watering book by Rosemary. I only received my copy of her new book today and am heading out to buy some salmon to make the Conft of Salmon with Courgette Spaghetti and my next venture will be the Roast Duck Breasts with Onion Tart and Butternut Squash Gratin.

All the recipes look absolutely scrumptious and I have found those that I have done out of her first book to be fool proof and Rosemary's instructions are easy to follow.

I do not normally bother to read Introductions to books, but this one is enchanting, like reading a mini novel and her notes in between each section are so readable and informative. Well done Rosemary, not only are you a superb chef, a most entertaining TV personality but also an excellent writer.

I bought this book after watching the series which I loved. The recipes are easy to follow and everything is explained clearly although I wouldn't say its a book for complete beginners. Ive dooked a few of the recipes and they are gorgeous....highly recommended. If you want a taster of her recipes you can actually download them from the ITV website.

This is an impressive tome which would make a lovely gift for your foodie mates. The photographs are gorgeous, not just of the food but also scenes from, and around, the 'School' too.
However, it is aimed at dinner party fodder and wouldn't necessarily suit those who just want quick, tasty, dishes during the week. I was also slightly disappointed that, as it is a combined book about both series of School for Cooks, that some of the recipes I wanted from the second series weren't here.

I battled for six months to obtain my own copy of Ms Shrager's masterpiece Castle Cook. I was leant a copy while cooking at a lodge and used many of her recipes with lip-smacking results. Her latest publication, School for Cooks, was eagerly awaited. It is full of gems, ready to be tried and tested by me. She combines good tastes with attractive presentation - without being cheffy - which is what hungry people want. Don't be put off by the white outfit, her ideas are good.

This was an excellent book-very prompt delivery and a first-class price. A real bargain and it does contain excellent recipes in a very clear and straightforward style which is easy to follow.
Searching the Internet I was unable to find a better price than that offered by Amazon!

I couldn't wait to watch "School for Cooks" each day on the TV and was quite disappointed when it came to the end of the series. Rosemary Shrager's book is a great follow up and although the recipes aren't easy if you take you time you can achieve some of her great dishes.

Really good book expecially if you are having people over for dinner and want to impress. I don't use it every day but found the recipes easy to follow and good results. Am now thinking of getting her other book as well.
