It does what it says on the tin, and more.'  Kate Colquhoun, ‘The Best 50 Cookbooks’, Independent‘Brilliant’  Heston Blumenthal‘No glossy photos; just 700 pages of wonderful recipes and instruction in basics such as bread-making. And all with the kind of detailed teaching left out of books that give more space to pictures than to text. A classic.’  Guardian‘Truly indispensable’  Nigel Slater
