I have shelves full of cookery books but this is probably still the one I turn to the most - it has all the basics as well as most of the food and recipes I ate when growing up - it is also my mum's cooking bible! Read full review

About the author (1992)

Delia Smith is Britain's bestselling cookery writer, whose books have sold over 21 million copies to date. She began her writing career over 40 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 Summer and Winter Collections, The Vegetarian Collection and the How to Cook series among others.

After a five-year break in 2003 to concentrate on Norwich City Football Club (where she is a director) and Canary Catering, Delia returned in 2008 with a new BBC TV series and the fastest-selling cookery book of all time, How to Cheat at Cooking. Her Complete How to Cook was released in 2009 to celebrate 40 years of writing recipes and was voted the Most Useful Cookery Book of All Time. Delia's Happy Christmas was published later in 2009, fully updated with 100 new recipes and accompanied by a BBC TV special. She was also awarded a CBE for her services to the food industry. Delia is married to the writer and editor, Michael Wynn Jones. They live in Suffolk.
