This was the first cookbook I ever owned and was bought for me by my mother before I left Rotherham to go to university in London. Its step by step instructions helped me take my first wobbly steps in to the world of cooking and dinner parties. I still occasionally make the turkey in cider recipe from it today.

As a teenager I acquired this after the death of a great Aunt who was very dear. To this day it provides me with great, simple recipes-especially baking, that are more foolproof than Delia's! My wedding cake was taken from here!
Not cool, not trendy, not a book many would admit even to using, but I love it. Crucially, it’s utterly dependable. A gift from my late mother before I left for university; she also gifted me a love of food.
For an un-trained cook a thorough and dependable manual is a must for checking exact methods and I think the Good Housekeeping Cookery Book is hard to beat.
My old one from 1976 fell part. It’s a bible. The recent one contains calories. Very important as you get older.
