The Really Helpful Cookbook- First Edition; Rare Signed copy

£100.00

Product description

The Really Helpful Cookbook- First Edition; Rare Signed copy

"How often do you come across a really good cookbook, one that you want to recommend to all your friends? The truthful answer is, not very often. The Really Helpful Cookbook is destined to be one of those books, a genuine classic that you pick up again and again. Written by Ruth Watson, one of Britain's best-loved food writers, it contains recipes that are the very best in modern, stylish home cooking, along with priceless information on everything from the best brand of sugar to use for baking to advice on whether it really is necessary to skin tomatoes. With over 150 recipes, the book is divided into Winter and Summer, and dishes range from Cod with Garlic Saffron Mash to Plums on Panettone. When time pressures dictate, cheating - with style - is fine in Ruth's book and there are many ideas for clever shortcuts. Ruth writes with passion and humour, always placing her recipes and advice in the context of our daily lives, making this a book that is as enjoyable to read as it is to cook from."

This copy is in excellent condition throughout. There are are a few small marks to the dust jacket particularly at the top edge on the back. The inside pages are slightly faded but are clean and unmarked. The author has inscribed the first title page in biro and this has made a slight imprint on the next page which is the main title page. As far as I am aware there do not seem to be any signed copies available from online sellers at present. Therefore this would be of great appeal to collectors and obviously fans of Ruth Watson.

Please note -the image shown is slightly different.
