'Three well-planned and pleasant little resources for the kitchen, all helpfully devoting one page to each recipe, with a background note, ingredients and method ... substantial collections of good recipes to which you will find yourself turning much more often than to the extravagant and showy cookbooks with their glistening colour photos and stylish spoofery.'
