I have not bought this book yet but it is on my list. I have looked at the contents and I am happy with the recipes apart from one ommission, a whisky cake. Made this some time ago but I have not got the recipe and I was really hoping that it would be in this book. This had to be the best cake I have made as it was eaten by people who do not normally like rich fruit cake and won't eat Christmas Cake. From memory the fruit was steeped or boiled in whisky and then made as a rich fruit cake. The cake was then fed with whisky, marzipaned and iced with an icing flavoured with whisky and treacle. I have never had so many compliments about a cake.

I have made Creole, Whisky Dundee, Christmas Cake, Mincemeat cake and others so I have faith in Delia.

Glad to see that she has included some recipes for special diets.

I have still given the book five stars because it is worth it.

As usual with Delia, the recipes are well-chosen, clear and practical. Every recipe tried so far works. I look forward to trying more.
