Delia Smith's Complete Illustrated Cookery Course
by Delia Smith
List Price: £22.99

The definitive guide to good cooking. Packed with recipes, and full of sensible advice, this book is a must for cooks of all levels of experience. For beginners, you really will find detailed instructions on how to, for example, hard boil an egg!

Cooks with more experience will be delighted by the sheer range of recipes, all of which are clearly described and are largely foolproof. Roast dinners, pies, soups, biscuits, cakes, puddings - you name it, and it is probably in the index!

My only complaint is that not all of the recipes are photographed.

That aside, this book is a classic and should have a place on every cooks' bookshelf. It was the first cook book I bought, and I still return to it time and time again.
