A pleasure to read, and very very useful
on 9 May 2009
This book has been invaluable for me. I have used it every day since buying it.
Darina has a way of talking you through a recipe as if she is right there in the kitchen, and believe me there is a recipe for everything.
The book ranges from meat to veg and fruit to breads soups sauces jams and pickles and everything in between.
Many recipes have a mother recipe, for example pesto, and then variations.
My most favourite recipe so far has been the vanilla ice cream, and I have a phobia of mixing hot syrup with egg yolks, but Darina shows you how to stop it making sweet scrambled eggs.
A great buy for everyone.
