How to Cook by Delia Smith

Delia's How to Cook is a simple-to-follow cooking course for people of all ages and abilities. In this comprehensive two-part book series, Delia returns to the very roots of cooking to look at the techniques and the staple ingredients that underline the best traditions of British cuisine. She doesn't want us to forget how to put together a wholesome, nutritious meal that doesn't come from the freezer or is ready-made. Delia knows from her mailbag that some people are not handed down the basics. In a world where there is less time than ever to cook, it is easy to feel intimidated by the thought of cooking.
