Which Delia book?

Hi All

I'm new here and want to ask a quick question. I want to buy one of Delia's learn to cook books and want advice about which to go for.

Is Delia's Complete How to Cook a more up to date version of the original Complete Cookery course?

I'm going to order one of them but don't know which one.

I having been cooking properly (ie not ready meals) for the last 2 years. I use recipes and have got quite good at it. However, I couldn't look in the cupboard and knock something up with what's there as I don't really know the concepts and the basics.

That's what I'm looking for, something that will teach me the concepts and the basics so I can confidently make my own recipes.

I'd appreciate your advice.

Delias Books.

Yes, How to Cook is much newer than the complete cookery course.

In my view, How to Cook is Delias very est, and CCC is very dated.

Delia book

Bought my son "How to.." when he left home and has proved a great hit. He can now happily make a meal from what he has in store cupboard and fridge.

you won't regret it - i still find them really useful. Especially for things i don't do that often - like roasting times and temperatures for meat - invaluable

How to cook

I know you posted this a while back Yeti and by now are familiar with this site, but Delia's "how to cook" section here is excellent and don't forget other food sites, which I won't mention in case I get into trouble, have great videos (videojug) oops! Watching step-by-step is so useful and I will watch a video repeatedly until I get it memorised. Of course books will always be invaluable, but having so many books, I sometimes find it quicker to look up a recipe online! Good luck with your cooking - if you have the interest, the skills will come with perseverence.
