Publishers Text

The urge to cook comes from developing an understanding and appreciation of good simple food, and then wanting to produce it yourself. Good cooking begins with acquiring the essential knowledge of basic methods and techniques, and these are clearly and simply explained in this inspirational book. The techniques are illustrated by a wide range of exciting recipes. These reflect the fundamental differences in our eating habits since the original "Penguin Cookery Book" was published in 1952. They draw on our increasing curiosity about and acquaintance with other countries and other cuisines. Above all, they reflect the very rich cultural diversity of Britain itself. A healthy balanced diet is important and so is being at ease in the kitchen. Throughout the book the emphasis is on uncomplicated dishes which use good meat in small quantities, new ways with fish, many different vegetables, and fruit desserts rather than rich creamy ones. "The New Penguin Cookery Book" should help you to acquire cooking skills which will enhance not just your table but your life as well.
