If you struggle with cooking or are curious about it, give this book a go. With the easy-to-read layout and with the pictures that accompany all the recipes, you will find it hard to go wrong. The step-by-step photographs that are alongside the recipes are useful for glancing at. This has been my favourite feature of the book alongside the wide variety of dishes therein.
This book covers a wide range of cuisines, e.g. Indian, Moroccan, Chinese, and there is even a section on how to cook a roast dinner with all the trimmings - which has been very popular at univeristy.

The recipes in this book are easy enough to make and all bring something tasty to the table.
Students?
I also think that this book is good for all the students out there! I use it at university and haven't found myself out of pocket. It also teaches you very basic techniques that are useful in later life and also means that you are not simply living off frozen pizza or beans on toast.
Some of the best sections in the book for quick and cheap meals are the pasta, stir fry, salad, mince and breakfast - a wife range so you will not find yourself eating the same thing night after night.

The only downside to the recipes herein is there aren't many that are suitable for vegans or vegetarians.

Sounds useful, but a bit more detail would be good i.e. Which recipes have worked best for you and which not so good?

in food to have a go' - Jamie Oliver. Sixty years
ago food was in short supply and malnutrition
rates were high. "The Ministry of Food" was set up
to teach the public how to make the best use of
the food available to them. Fast forward to the
present day, where we have unlimited choices and
plenty of food, yet we're living in a world of
junk food, additives and preservatives. Our war is
now against obesity, as most people have little or
no idea about how to cook and what makes a
balanced diet. We need to learn from the past. We
need to look back at the way our grandmothers and
great-grandmothers cooked - wholesome,... more »
tasty food that was simple and quick to prepare.
If you're a complete beginner in the kitchen,
Jamie's promise to you is that you'll be making
some great dinners within hours of reading his
book. A little knowledge and a few basic tools can
go a long way, and this book is your first step
