Well if its the combined 'How to Cook books 1,2 & 3' then i would recommend. I have books 1&2 (havent got round to book 3 but might just get the complete now instead) and have found them really useful as the instructions and photographs are clear and easy to follow. I have always enjoyed cooking but its good to try different ways of doing everyday things, I now always do my scrambled and poached eggs 'delia style'

I really like John Torode's Beef Book. I have used it a lot.

The tips for cooking steak are particuarly good and can turn quite a cheap cut into something very good. I never realised before what a difference it made to cook steak properly...

Well I got the Delia one from Sainsbury's tonight (was a quid more than online but meant I could just get it tonight). It seems good and very in depth. I am not sure how many of the dishes I will cook but seems to have a good range in there. I just need to work out how to scale some back for one person

I do like the eggs chapters as there seem to be some good things there that seem simple but tasty and easy to do for one person.
