5 stars Review by: Emma, 22 August 2010

'I was attracted to the book because of the helpful pictures it seemed to have, and as it was on offer I thought I''d have it. I''ve now cooked a few recipes from this book and its now my new kitchen ''bible''. Today''s experiment was brioche and they''re so good I''m really not sure they''re going to last very long. I just want to say thank you to DK and the authors for something so valuable - a book with fantastic recipes (and not all for easy things) with instructions and pictures making it possible to cook some great dishes.'

 stars Review by: Georgy Fowler, 01 December 2005

“One of those comprehensive essentials that underpin a kitchen.” The Observer

“Comprehensive “how to” format, complemented by Dorling Kindersley’s typically glossy photographs (the desserts look good enough to pick off the page).” Free Range Magazine

“This book is an easy way to have the experts at hand.” The Independent on Sunday

"All in all, this is a great reference tool for the novice and seasoned pro alike. Every section is explained in simple yet fine detail. Nothing is left to chance and everything is explained clearly. This truly is a book for cooks."

"Fantastic advice and step-by-step instructions from the world’s top chefs" Eve

“This is a book that can be recommended for a good cook who wants to improve techniques..” Times Literary Supplement
