Book Choice NOT – Delia’s How to Cheat at Cooking

This week my book choice is NOT Delia’s How to Cheat at Cooking.

Normally I would recommend a book of recipes that I have either enjoyed reading or using to cook from.

This book is one I would not recommend.


Well can using frozen mashed potato really be called cooking?

The whole process reminds me of a 1970s cookbook I found at my mother-in-law’s which had wonderful recipes which required white sauce mix, frozen pastry cases and tinned vegetables.

That is not cooking that is food construction.

Delia’s How to Cheat at Cooking is not a cooking book it is a food construction book.

You can get it from Amazon if you want to see how to construct food. They also sell books about cooking as well.
