This book is GREAT!!! It is totally "complete" from how to boil an egg to making delicious desserts. It includes a section on practically everything you need to know as a chef. For instance, it has a chapter about what fruit and vegetables are in season at different times of the year, a fruit and veg calender. Delia tells the reader how to prepare fish and then gives recipes for the fish. She tells us what we should have in our cupboard as a chef,ie.ingrediants and appliences. We are told how to make perfect bread, omlettes, sauces, rice, pasta, potatoes, meat and poultry, and many desserts. A "Waist Watchers" section is also in Delia's "Complete How To Cook" cookbook. I love this book as it is a great guide for beginners aswell as a really good recipe collection. I think this book is worth five stars as it is not only recipes inside but contains advice and all you need to know about fruit, veg, etc. I LOVE "Complete How To Cook" by Delia Smith. Please go to your local bookstore an buy this book. It's well worth it!!!
