Everything you need
on 19 June 2003
I have had this book for several months now and unlike every other cookbook on my shelf, it really has been used and is beginning to look a bit dog-eared! The recipes are great and easy to follow, there are no "strange" or "hard to find" ingredients. You will find simple recipes like how to cook a roast, to how to make Thai Green Curry (one of the best recipes for Thai Green Curries I've ever found). Even the basics are covered, like how to cook great rice and make great mashed potatoe.
The only problem is that it doesn't have any recipes for desserts, but this will be covered in her second book "Modern Classics Book 2". Otherwise, an essential kitchen tool for the person who wants to improve and expand their cooking skills!
