Review: Delia's Complete Cookery Course: Classic Edition

User Review  - RosieJo - Goodreads

The classic cookery book for our age. What I love about Delia is that her recipes always work, and she's a cook not a chef so no fancy terminology, wacky cooking methods or ingredients from the slopes of obscure mountain ranges. Just simple great tasting food. A must for all home cooks :) Read full review
