"A Gen Y Nigella Lawson" – Glamour
"UK food writer Hornby’s voluminous compendium of culinary classics deserves to make the short list for novice cooks interested in learning how to make the basics from scratch. Over the course of the book’s 400‐plus pages, Hornby guides readers through everyday favorites like Huevos Rancheros, Lasagna, Paella, chicken wings and blue cheese dip, and apple pie. Though there are the occasional minor variations on classic recipes (a bay leaf is added to milk simmering for mac and cheese), Hornby’s by‐the‐book approach to everyday eating is a terrific resource for those with a taste for tradition. . . a terrific guide." – Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"One of the most heavily illustrated cookbooks of all time – Nothing’s left to chance and everything is beautifully explained – It could just be the best book for novice cooks ever." – Westside"

The pictures make all the difference in my opinion because they truely grab you into doing the recipe which is very easy to follow and very detailed so there is nothing for guessing.
I have tried almost all of the recipes in the book, and everytime I am stuck as in what to cook I am always assured that when I open this book it will jump to me.
I've made about 15 recipes from this book in the last month and every single one has turned out fantastic! In fact, it's so good that I've convinced three other people to buy it too!
