Sue Baker's view...

If you’ve never cooked anything before in your life then this might be intimidating. It isn’t themed so you can’t start at page one and the boiled egg stage, you need first to find your recipes, which are not graded in terms of difficulty. However once you’ve found your recipe there are references back to any specific technique – stock or sauce making for example. This is where the book excels; the techniques are, as promised, step-by-step and very thorough including some of my own bête noirs such as boning fish. It is actually quite inspiring in this regard, and once you immerse yourself in the book, it’s easy to navigate, read up on the tips, the does and don’ts and ideas for variations. I’d conclude that it’s an excellent all-rounder, great for teaching yourself new and relearning forgotten techniques but not one for the tentative beginner. A new updated edition from the original 2007 book.
