Comments On Amazon
“Superb book for lovers of canapés. Very easy to follow and packed with great ideas. Excellent for planning a party in advance. Would really recommend this book.” Diana 2015
“I am a cookbook junkie but I have never before made as much use of a single book as I do of this one.” Jane 2005
“This book was given to me as a present several years ago and it is now dogeared and covered in baking remnants! I have made most of the canapes in the book and it has served as a great starting point for creating my own! The recipes are simple and easy to follow, with very small amounts of ingredients – great for keeping the shopping bill down when catering for large numbers.” Natalie 2005

Comments From Amazon
“I bought this book after I noticed my friend had used it for a number of meals that we had enjoyed at her house. It is fantastic, something for every occasion and taste, really simple to use I love the “Diva Do’s” and “Diva Dont’s”, they help to prevent that last minute rush or huge delay between courses and make it easy to prepare stuff in advance if you want to. The best book I have for entertaining!” D Steele
The Cooking Book was published by Dorling Kindersley and is a large ‘essential’ bible to everyday cooking published in 2008 and has since been reprinted a few times and in many languages and formats.
Comments on Amazon
“Best cooking book I’ve ever come across. I’m a beginner cook and I find most cookery books are nice to look at but not very easy to follow. But this book is loaded with practical and delicious-looking recipes. The DVD contains short clips of basic cooking techniques, probably more useful for beginners. The pocket shopping list booklet is very handy when you go shopping, all ingredients and quantities for each recipe in one small book. I think experienced cooks will also enjoy the great variety of recipes covering everything from starters and snacks, mains and sides and cakes and desserts. Well recommended – I’m ordering another one for my niece! ” Serena 2008
