Jill's irresistible recipes and lively writing also appear in Delicious magazine (UK and Australia) and she is a regular guest chef on BBC TV (Good Food Live and Saturday Kitchen). Jill was voted Cookery Writer of the Year at the British Guild of Food Writers' Awards in 2002 for her work on The Times.

Let me first say that the book itself is a real find, with stunning, high-quality photogaphy (my favorite feature of any cookbook). The recipes might seem a bit edgy at first glance, but I urge you to try them - so far, they are incredible (I'd heard about Jill Dupleix's cranberry blondie recipe from a friend who reads her column in the London Times, so I made them first. They tasted terrific, and made the whole house smell lovely!)
The DVD addition, however, makes this book an absolute must-have. It's like having your own personal TV cooking show right in your kitchen. Unlike TV, however, you can actually follow along with this program, since the disk can be paused, re-wound, fast-forwarded, skipped, searched, etc. And Jill Dupleix is delightful to watch. She's made sure to include lots of helpful cooking tips and techniques which can't really be conveyed any other way except by visual demonstration - how to thin-slice veggies, for example.
This was by far the best cookbook purchase I made this year. Get this set if you love watching cooking shows and want a new experience!
