You don't necessarily get the exotic recipes, though there are some, but what you do get is the basis for doing just about everything. Delia Smith's Complete Cookery Course, the book that has taken the pride of place on everyone's kitchen shelf, has now been completely revised and updated. Illustrated with mouth-watering photographs, Delia Smith's Complete Cookery Course provides all you need, and more, for a lifetime of cooking and entertaining. It includes recipes for all-time classics like Taramasalata, Flaky Fish Pie, Christmas Pudding, crunchy Roast Potatoes, Boeuf Bourguignonne, Gratin Dauphinois and Rich Bread and Butter Pudding.

Delia discusses kitchen equipment, shows techniques such as jointing a chicken, temperatures, dealing with fish and meat, cakes and jams etc. The same year she was presented with a BAFTA Special Award in honour of her outstanding contribution to television cookery and services to broadcasting. I recently had a change in circumstances, and whilst I am a reasonable cook, I needed something to help me diversify in my portfolio.I love her friendly conversational style, she talks you through all eventualities and you feel secure under her tutelage.

As such, Smith augments her recipes with plenty of tips and advice, and provides instructions for performing many tasks, so your confidence builds as you try new things. Delia also gives advice on new and widely available ingredients like easy-blend yeast, filo pastry and fromage frais. No missing or damaged pages, no tears, possible very minimal creasing, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins.Lots of pages were stained but it's harsh to be too critical about that as there are so many volumes in one and it was so cheap. If you were not as lucky to be taught , then this is the best 'surrogate mummy cook' for the nation.

There are few cookery books that one can turn to and expect it to have a stab at almost anything you might look-up, but this one is almost it. Many of us MANY of us were brought up with the 'knowledge', passed on by parents about cuts of meat and fish cleaning techniques. International publishing phenomenon Delia Smith is renowned for her tried-and-tested, fool-proof recipes, and this comprehensive guide to cooking, with recipes that will become kitchen favourites, is no exception. I don't know anyone who has followed the course from start to end, or even used it as a course at all, so I can't comment on whether the course is any good.My life is so much better now that I don't just mash fruit into my mouth and gnaw on raw meat or vegetables depending on the time of year. As clear and comprehensive as ever, the recipes are suitable for beginners as well as more experienced cooks.
