Rated 4 out of 5 by from Back to Basics: 100 Simple Classic Recipes with a Twist I bought this book recently and have tried a couple of recipes. Excellent and very easy to follow instructions. My only criticism is the binding of the book. I don't believe it is going to stand up to much use without the pages coming apart.
