Delia's Bible - Indispensable,
This review is from: Delia's Complete How To Cook: Both a guide for beginners and a tried & tested recipe collection for life (Hardcover)
As a bloke who hasn't got any of the other Delia books but quite like her on the telly i thought this would be useful addition to the other Jamies, Nigellas and Wagamama books on the Kitchen Shelf.
I didnt realise quite how essential it would become - its now 'first choice' every time i turn to the kitchen shelf for advice on an old fave or want to try something new to impress my other half.
It feels like that trusted DIY manual you keep going back to time and again either just to dip into (like that nice boiled egg on the cover) or to study in detail - whether its a meal that youve done before and need a refresher or want to give it a bit of a twist; or if its something youve never cooked before and you want the guiding hand of someone who knows what theyre doing (and can explain exactly what to do in the real world!) to stop it all going horribly wrong.
Its like Delia's Bible - and you can't say fairer than that. Essential for any kitchen shelf and highly recommended.

To be fair isn't it another compilation of her old paperbacks (although I agree the reviewer does seem to be talking about this new version specifically)? Pretty sure my friend has had this for years...has Delia not just re-released with extras and in brand new shiny hardback?

This book is a compilation of the three How To Cook books which were published in the late 90s. I don't think they were ever in paperback. Maybe you are thinking of Delia Smith's Cookery Course?
