Excellent book, showing you the basics from boiling an egg to cooking a chicken. A colorfully executed cookbook with a clean-cut no-nonsense layout, and hints and tips from the author. Great basic cook book for any teen. An added bonus is a section advising on dealing with exams. Also an excellent collection of sauces and dressings at the back of the book. A wide range of recipes to suit anyone. A few of my personal favorites would be mixed up chicks, char sui pork, and lemon drizzle cake, superb!
