What people are saying

Lorraine McLeod"Your recipe book is a godsend. I was stuck in a rut with the same boring meals. Since I began using it my interest in cooking has rocketed. It´s so easy to follow and the results are delicious - really tasty and good sized portions."
Susan Acton, Gerrards Cross

Lorraine McLeod"In my view, speaking as somebody who is only a once-in-a-while cook, Recipes That Really Work', is the way recipe books should be written. For each meal it tells you everything you'll need in the way of equipment, as well as the ingredients, and then steps you through the process in a way that gives you confidence and makes it almost impossible to go wrong."
Neil McLeod, Tetbury

eric-clair-putsman"Recipes That Really Work is the best recipe book I´ve ever come across. No other recipe book gets a look in anymore because it takes all the effort out of cooking and everything tastes fantastic. I´ve never had so many compliments about my food!"
Clare Putsman, Sutton Coldfield

Lorraine McLeod"I´m very impressed with the vegetarian recipes in your excellent book. They´re as good as anything I've eaten at The Gate in Hammersmith, which is arguably London's best vegetarian restaurant."
Nigel Warder, Kingswood

Lorraine McLeod"If I had to choose one dish, I'd go for the Ghurka chicken. You taste that first spicy, succulent mouthful and it develops in your mouth into an even richer, deeper flavour. Delicious."
