With so many cookery books on the market it is hard to choose one that is best suited to the practicalities of everyday living. Even for the professional chef many recipes are too expensive or impractical for the home kitchen.

Macaroni and Pancetta

How many of us really have the time or inclination to make a veal stock and reduce it to a syrup or ask your local fishmonger (if you have one) for a whole turbot?
