This book is great for anyone learning how to cook or even people who have been cooking for a while. Its very neat and the pictures are great. All the recipes include pictures from the start of the meal to the end. Ms. Hornby also took the time to show all the ingredients and what it would look like for the homecook. Most of the ingredients can be found in the supermarket or farmer's market. The recipes are economical and thats great in a cookbook. Here is a list of how the book is set up Introduction: Tips on how to make recipes work for you. Basic kitchen equipment like knives, roasting pan and food processor. Next is ingredients, shopping tips and basic pantry. Breakfast & Brunch: Smoothies, cinnamon rolls, scrambled eggs, muffins, pancakes and corncakes. Light Lunches: Ham Cheese Sandwich, warm goat cheese salad, Spicy vegetable soup, shrimp and mushroom laksa. Simple Suppers: Chicken stir-fry, mushroom risotto, thai curry with beef, lamb chops, penne with tomato and olive sauce. Food for sharing: Sticky BBQ ribs, stuffed potato skins, chicken tikka and raita lettuce cups, pizza margherita and chicken satay. Weekend Cooking: Pan Fried Fish, eggplant parmigana, lasagne, paella, crab cakes, beef stew, chicken pot pie, fish stew, roast pork. Side Dishes: Roast potatoes, rataouille, oven fries, dressed green beans, glazed carrots. Desserts: Apple pie, chocolate chip cookies, frosted cupcakes, key lime pie, lemon tart, vanilla ice cream, brownies and panna cotta with raspberries. Also Ms. Hornby includes tips on planning a menu and basic preparations like cutting garlic, onions and herbs. I did my best to list most of the dishes. I did not list them all. I just wanted to give everyone an idea of whats in the book. This book is great for family and friends. This cookbook is great for any level of the homecook. I am glad I have this book and I will continue to make more of the dishes. Last night I made the spicy vegetable soup. Tonight I made for dessert the key lime pie. I cant wait until its ready.

Bought this cookbook for my 18 year old daughter. She loves the extra pictures showing the layout of ingredients per recipe. The recipes are also very good. This is her favorite cookbook now and she owns over 20.
