My children's school is one of the first schools to have been given the cookery grant from Romilla Arber. She came to the school to present the cookery equipment bought with the grant and to do a cookery school with some of the children. My son took part and thoroughly enjoyed cooking tomato soup and cheesy muffins. I bought the book came home, opened it up and made one of the chicken pies that very same evening. It was really easy, delicious and everyone was eager to try something new. We have since used it almost daily and haven't opened another cook book since purchasing it. We love it and the children are inspired to try new things as they can follow the recipies and help to prepare the dinner. Now buying another book for my father who is eager to give the recipies a go. All the proceeds go to more cookery grants for other children at other schools. Love it!! Love it!!

This book is absolutely brilliant. After years of trying and failing to get organised in terms of shopping for food, menu planning and cooking, this book has turned me into a well organised and brilliant cook overnight. I've already cooked three weeks' worth of recipes following this system and they have all been delicious. I honestly don't think I will ever use any of my other cookery books. Romilla has done all the hard work for me, I now just buy what's on her shopping list and I'm sorted for the week. I've rediscovered the joy of cooking - it no longer seems like a chore because all the planning is done for you, you just get to do the fun bit, the cooking. You won't regret buying this book.

I've never writen a review before but just felt I had to write about this book. This book is the second installment of Romilla Arber's 'what's for dinner' and the profits of both books go to the Food Education Trust that she set up to promote healthy eating and cooking. I think that is very comendable and for that reason alone I think it's a good investment, but the book itself is fabulous too!

This is a HUGE book that has taken me weeks of looking through, just to get through the 740-odd pages and read the few lines of comments that the author puts at the top of each recipe. The book is about 5cms thick and has 521 recipes (according to the acknowledgements). The idea is that there is a savoury recipe for every day of the year, set out in weekly blocks, using seasonal ingredients. There are also a few recipes per week for sweets or cakes as a treat. The author has kids herself, so these recipes are all tried and tested at her family table and often she writes a little comment about whether her children liked it or not.

I'll pick some random pages/recipes to give you a flavour of what's in there:
Doughnuts, duck in a pot with vegetables, lamb in a pot, rhubarb crumble with ginger cream, fresh pappardelle with tomato and basil sauce, mackerel salad, spiced loin of lamb with pilaf rice and cucumber salad, apricot and raspberry cream tart, carrot and courgette muffins, crispy pork sandwiches with apple sauce, pasta with courgettes, tomatoes and pancetta, coffee cake with mocha icing, red pepper and tomato risotto, ham and mushroom lasagne, meatballs in a pot, sausage and cabbage stew, roast chicken with mascarpone and herb stuffing and fennel gratin, sliced oranges in syrup with ginger madeleines, mini nut and chocolate tarts, and plaice goujons with tartare sauce.

You can throw away any other cookery books you have as this is the only one you will ever need. I have collected literally hundreds of recipe books over the years and this is the best I have ever seen. Totally brilliant.

I chose this book as I wanted a cookery manual that had a wide variety of recipes. Romilla's recipes are easy to follow and focus on the importance of a balanced diet. Each week comprises of a variety of recipes that use vegetables, red meat, poultry, fish and game. The recipes are really easy to follow and quick to prepare, which is great as I am a busy mum. If you ever buy one cookery book this year, make it this one! Not only is it a fabulous book with excellent photography, all proceeds from the sale of "What's for Dinner?" and "What's for Dinner? Second Helpings" go to The Food Education Trust ([...] a charity founded by the author. Amazing book and an amazing cause!

Brilliant; I have been looking for a book like this for a long time. 365 dinner recipes, one for every day of the year, set out on a week by week basis.
Simple, readily available ingredients and straightforward preparation and cooking. Good variety. I am delighted with my purchase and would thoroughly recommend it ; great for when you just can't think of what to cook. The really good thing about this book is that it is intended for use in UK; I have tried several American books and web sites which do the daily recipe thing , along with a weekly shopping list, but found they just didn't work for me. It comes with a nice kitchen proof jacket and book mark . So glad to have found this.
