Excellent buy for kitchen novices!
This is an excellent book for all those people like me who are not very confident in the kitchen. Tamasin's advice is clear and straightforward and the recipes are easy to follow and delicious. It is obvious she has enjoyed writing the book and sharing her methods and recipes. This is a really good investment - definitely worth five stars.
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.
This is an excellent family cookbook. When I received this book, I was sceptical in a small way, to see if it lived up to the hype that my friends had created!
It does, simple as that.
I have three young children and one way or another I would like to teach them to cook good, nutritious, seasonal food. This book does it completely and is a joy to have in the kitchen.
Any book that starts off with baking biscuits and cakes, especially jam tarts, should be recommended to any household! Buy it, you won't be disappointed.
