About this deal

Her Complete Illustrated Cookery Course provides all you need, and more, for a lifetime of cooking and entertaining. 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. 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. 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.

I do not rate myself as much of a cook: but when we entertain, I reach for "Delia" and sit back to receive the plaudits of our guests - it never fails. 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. Good schools used to teach us how to make all sorts of pastry and cakes, before it became ' technology' on the national curriculum.We know it helped many of our members during the uncertainty of 2020 - never before have we needed the skills and techniques required for basic, good, home-cooked food. Not only are her recipes easy to understand and comprehensive, but she adds all sorts of friendly advice that makes the finished result always something to be proud of. Being retired and single, I cook for myself, and, even saying so myself, have become 'a dab hand' at it! I recommend getting this cookery book as it will explain how to cook your food to make it nutritious and tasty.

I am an avid cook and own many cookbooks but this is still my favourite, so much so that I have purchased it for my future daughter-in-law.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.

No missing or damaged pages, no tears, possible very minimal creasing, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. This book was originally published a long time ago and we bought it, used it and learned how to cook with it. As clear and comprehensive as ever, Delia’s recipes are suitable for beginners as well as more experienced cooks, providing you with all you need for a lifetime of cooking and eating well.We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.
