Editorial Review:


Delia's How to Cook Book One is aimed at beginners: people whose staple diet comprises heat-and- serve or take-away meals. Television cook and bestselling author Delia Smith's aim is to equip her readers with the basic techniques of cooking which, after some practice, will help them discover the pleasures of home-made food. With the aid of very detailed instructions that accompany her recipes, readers are taught how to work with the staples: eggs, flour, rice, bread and pasta. But the book goes beyond boiled eggs and baked potatoes. There are recipes and photographs which will inspire: moussaka with roasted aubergines and ricotta, wild mushroom tartlets with poached quails' egg and apricot galettes with amaretto. Many of the recipes have several extra photographs which show the dish at various stages of preparation--these are useful if the recipe includes a gravy which needs to be "thickened" or if potatoes need to be cut into "chunks". Healthy options, like fat-free white sauces and chips you don't have to fry, are also included.

FAR TOO COMPLICATED FOR BEGINNERS (0/0 people found this helpful)

I HAVE DELIA'S COMPLETE COOKERY COURSE WHICH I HAVE HAD FOR AROUND 20 YEARS. IT IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN HER HOW TO COOK BOOKS AND I WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE FROM A COMPLETE BEGINNER TO SOMEONE MORE EXPERIENCED. HER HOW TO COOK BOOKS ARE FULL OF THINGS YOU WOULDN'T REALLY WANT TO COOK AND I THINK ITS TOO COMPLICATED FOR INEXPERIENCED COOKS.NEEDLESS TO SAY I HAVE GIVEN BOTH BOOKS ONE AND TWO OF HER HOW TO COOK BOOKS TO THE CHARITY SHOP AND GONE BACK TO MY OLD COPY OF HER COMPLETE COOKERY COURSE (I THINK YOU CAN STILL BUY THIS).

5/5 stars

Every home should own a copy of Delia Smith's How To Cook (0/0 people found this helpful)

When I first started cooking using recipe books many years ago, Delia Smith had just released her How to Cook books, which were fantastic. What I really like about the Delia books is that every recipe is accompanied with a photograph of what the finished dish looks like. This is great as you can find something you like the look of and get cooking.

The instructions are clear, concise and easy to follow and I have never cooked anything yet that does not resemble the photograph. Even though I would now consider myself to be a more advanced cook, I still go back to the Delia books for simple, tasty and mouth watering recipes.

Strong buildings are always built on good foundations and that is exactly what these books provide.

Books one two and three are an inspiration. My daughter cooked her first Christmas lunch using recepies from Delia, all were a great success.
Delia does the thinking for you and all her recipes work!

Delia really is the best (0/0 people found this helpful)

I already had several of Delia's books, and I didn't really think I needed another. I received this book as a gift at christmas, and like many of the other reviewers have already said, it really is fantastic.
Her recipes are as always easy and simple to follow, written in such a way that inspires, even the most novice of cooks.
