Most cookery books are aimed at cooking for 4-6, as the introduction explains. This one is aimed at meals for two. If you're not living with one significant other and no additional individuals, then this might not seem much of a selling point. If -- like me -- you live with the love of your life and no-one else, then having a cook book which has quantities and cooking times tailored for you is a God send. This is perhaps an especially good point in these connected-days where you can quickly Google Delia's recipe for Spaghetti Bolognese or Pepper Sauce without having to get a book off the shelf. All the recipes are there on-line... but they are almost all of them calculated for 4-6 persons.

This book isn't just about quantities and cooking times. There is an omnipresent whiff of romantic living in these pages, ranging from the blueberry french toasts which kick off the brunch section to the summer fruit slush which finishes the book off, going via crispy chicken with salsa verde and moroccan lamb with couscous on the way. Moroccan lamb with couscous -- astonishingly -- takes a total of 15 minutes preparation and cooking time. In fact, aside from the lamb burger and roasted tomato at 1 1/2 hours and the tarragon chicken with potatoes at 70 minutes, almost all of the recipes in this book fall into the 15-35 minute range. In other words, they recognise the shortened available time-spans that seem to go with being a couple without adherents.

All the recipes in this book are simple. Just occasionally they are oversimplified to the point that they become difficult.

If the phrase 'Meal for Two' conjures up nothing more exciting than the ping of a microwave then this might be the Hamlyn 200 Cookbook for you. If, on the other hand, the phrase describes your general lack of portion control then it might still work for you. This edition features recipes and ideas designed to keep everyday dining interesting and delicious without taking all day to prepare - preparation and cooking times are usually no more than 30 minutes, assuming you've already done the shopping.

Unlike many of the Hamlyn 200 series the recipes aren't separated into food groups, like Beef & Pork, Fish and Vegetarian but instead are presented for different mealtimes like Brunch, Quick Suppers and Special Occasions. The only problem is that once you've enjoyed dishes like 'Ricotta & Pear Drizzle', 'Crispy Chicken with Salsa Verde' and 'Cherry Clafoutis' it's quite hard to go back and relish anything you just scraped out of a plastic tray - but maybe that's no bad thing?

Like all the other books in the Hamlyn range, this book is nicely put together and well produced. It is small, thick and chunky, and has a double page spread for each recipe, with one of the pages filled by a full-colour attractive photograph of the finished dish, and the other page containing the ingredients and recipe.

Unlike most of the books, however, the chapters in this are separated not by type of food (meat, fish, etc), but by the sort of meal. The chapters include brunch, light bites, quick suppers, special occasions and desserts. The brunch section has some nice ideas - chorizo and bacon stuffed mushrooms on toast, and 10-minute drop scones with dried fruit for example. The light bites section is less inspiring - a lot of not-very-interesting salads, a few mayonnaise-laden dishes and, weirdly, some crab shavings wrapped in lettuce. There is a nice-looking recipe for pear and gorgonzola mini pizzas though. The quick suppers section has similar meals, including quite a few pastas. I didn't see many that I fancied trying though.

The special occasions chapter picks up slightly, but some of the dishes - homemade burgers or vegetable pasta for example - were not things I would associate with a special night in. There are a couple of attractive recipes for tarragon chicken and marinated quail though. The desserts section is probably the best section of the book, with cute individual cheesecakes in either vanilla or chocolate, lavender syllabub and a yummy looking summer fruit slush.

This definitely isn't the best of the Hamlyn books that I own. The portions for all except the special occasion meals seem very small, and the range is not particularly inspiring.

I have a few of these little cookbooks but I have to say this is the least inspiring. For me there weren't enough interesting and enticing recipes. Quite a few seemed more snacks than full meals and the recipes that did appeal were merely variations on recipes I already have.

By way of example here are a few recipes from the quick suppers selection: tomato, feta & olive tarts; shish kebabs & tzatziki pitas; parmesan & polenta plaice; sweet potato & Roquefort toasts; prawn balls with chilli sauce; hot halloumi with fattoush salad (very nice). More substantial meals include beef & basil meatballs; sausage & broccoli pasta; pork with apricot & sage stuffing.

As with the other books in this series, each recipe is displayed on a single page with a photo of the finished dish on the facing page, instructions are clear and straightforward and recipes don't involve hard to find ingredients.
