I remember being given a copy of Delia's Complete Cookery by my Mum soon after I left home. Sadly, Delia never inspired me to get into the kitchen and cook in the way that Tamasin's Kitchen Bible has. Starting off easy with treats such as Jam Tarts and cookies this book takes you on the gentlest of learning curves until you realise that you are able to cook far more than you thought.. I loved realising that by following the Jam Tarts recipe you learn how to make a basic pastry (something I've always been nervous of) and by making Macaroni Cheese (the proper way!) you've learnt how to make a basic Bechamel sauce. Genius. I loved finding recipes for these childhood favorites and I'm now feeling confident enough to tackle the slightly harder things further on in the book.
