Is it likely that there will be an update to the One IS Fun cook book?



One is a Fun would be great if it was updated- it's nearly 30 years ago since it was first published, and I still use it today. But agree that a few of the recipes would benefit from updating to reflect current tastes and wider ingredient availability. How about it Delia?! Pleeeeeeeese!

There are no plans at the moment to update the book, but I will show Delia your message. She will be thrilled to know you are still using it and if there is anyone not familiar with the book, we have some of the recipes online, you can see them here.


me too

I use it too - since my wife is gluten free due to coeliac disease, I do a lot of 'individual' stuff containing gluten for myself.

One is Fun!

This is THE book by Delia that taught me to cook for myself, properly, in my early thirties. I adored it, used it constantly, cooked for my flat mates and then, later, scaled up many of the recipes and cooked them for boyfriends and groups of pals. I've since used all Delia's other books, of course, but I still cook from One is Fun, and recommend it to anyone starting to cook. The LE Creuset cast iron gratin dishes I bought, on the book's recommendation, are being used tonight...thirty years later...value!
Yes, an update would be marvellous but I pity anyone who tries to prise my original copy away from me! Thank you, Delia.


This becomes a trip down memory lane.

I have almost all Delia's books, she has taught me how to cook and to do it reasonably well.

Rather odd since I'm a yank and live in the USA.

My wife had been to the UK in the early 1989s and brought back, of all things, a Family Circle magazine with a knitting pattern she liked. It had an article about Delia and how to make good chips.

It was a great recipe.

When I visited the UK in 1990 myself, I found the omnibus volume of the cookery course and bought it.

Things are way easier. Ow to get international books - not so much now. I make it a point always to buy British editions as the ?Americanizing of books can leave important stuff out.

So I've been a Delia fan for just about 25 years.

Hi Nate

Would you call yourself a 'yank' even though you live in Montana?
