About this deal

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 Smith's Complete Illustrated Cookery Course contains more than a hundred stunning photographs that will inspire you to rush into the kitchen and start cooking: many of the classic Delia recipes, from crunchy Roast Potatoes to Christmas Pudding, are here in full colour and spectacular detail. Delia's Complete Cookery Course' is guaranteed to become a go-to recipe book, generation after generation, and makes an ideal gift and treasured tome for anyone who loves cooking and eating. 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.

She began her writing career 50 years ago on the Daily Mirror and since then has presented very many cookery series on television and published numerous bestselling cookery books including Delia Smith's Cookery Course, Summer and Winter Collections, The Vegetarian Collection, Delia's How to Cook and Delia's Happy Christmas among others. There's a full index at the back, for recipes and ingredients, and the whole book is divided into ingredient-based chapters, making it easy to find what you want. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Delia also gives advice on new and widely available ingredients like easy-blend yeast, filo pastry and fromage frais. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.

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. 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. The original glassine wrapper is rather toned and a bit soiled, but the book itself is in very nice condition. Being retired and single, I cook for myself, and, even saying so myself, have become 'a dab hand' at it! No missing or damaged pages, no tears, possible very minimal creasing, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins.

Illustrated with mouth-watering photographs, Delia Smith's Complete Cookery Course provides all you need, and more, for a lifetime of cooking and entertaining.To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the first publication of the omnibus edition and sales of over 6 million copies across all editions, Delia’s Complete Cookery Course has been re-issued with a fresh, new jacket. And Delia Smith makes the best roast potatoes :) She might not have the media popularity of some of the other TV chef personalities, but she can sure cook and teach. 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. 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.
