Customer Review

on 26 August 2003
The market for fully comprehensive cookbooks is crowded. This latest is a worthy addition but it comes at a price that, to this reviewer, has to be discounted to be competitive. A useful feature of the book is the "what has gone wrong when.." sections; however if that is your main reason for buying the book then consider Anne Willan's "Cooked to Perfection" (which is profusely illustated with useful photographs).
This book has a number of useful line drawings but no photo illustrations - which seens to the reviewer, to be penny pinching when considering the price - and comparing it with the step by step series of, for instance the Good Housekeeping series.
In several ways, not the least presentational style, it seems to be an expanded version of J Dimbleby's comprehensive cook book, which was at one time sold under the grocer Sainsbury's imprint.
