      The same recipies featured in the tv show of the same name. I watched the show to get the techniques then bought the book for the recipies. There isn't many recipies in here that I wouldn't use.
      Most of the ingredients are easily sourced and it's written in simple, easy to understand language.

            Best Cook book I have every bought. I have tried a number of different dishes and all have been successful and taste great. There is a great variety of recipes and the book is very well set-out in terms of meat, fish, baking etc.

            The small sub-sections which help with cooking techniques and mastering the basics are also very handy.

              After watching a couple of episodes of the cooking show, I was interested to see whether the book would reflect the information provided in the show - it did! The book contains some cooking basics, which I need.

                    This is an unexpected breath of fresh air... He's ditched the showing off and gone back to basics. The book is written in a matter-of-fact, unpatronising style, but his years of knowledge shine through on every page. He covers everything, from the fundamentals of kitchen kit and how to season a pan, to tips that even experienced cooks might not know... All in all, a long overdue correction to the sweary, shouty, cheffy image. Daily Mail
