Delia Smith is Britain's bestselling cookery writer, whose books have sold over 21 million copies worldwide. Delia's first job as a cookery writer was for the Daily Mirror in 1969 - numerous phenomenal best sellers and television series followed including Delia Smith's Complete Cookery Course in 1978 and Delia's Christmas, Summer & Winter Collections in the 1990s. Towards the end of the decade Delia commenced work on a new major project - Delia's How to Cook, publishing three separate volumes and the accompanying TV series. The Vegetarian Collection and The Delia Collection followed. After a five year break concentrating on Norwich City Football Club (where she is a director) and Canary Catering, Delia returned triumphant in 2008 with a new BBC TV series and the fastest selling cookery book of all time 'Delia's How to Cheat at Cooking' - which has sold over 800,000 copies. Delia is married to the writer and editor, Michael Wynn Jones. They live in Suffolk.From Publishers Weekly:
A friendly, encouraging tone and kitchen expressions from across the pond mark this comprehensive revision of British authority Smith's Complete Cookery Course , first seen 20 years ago. Predictable variations on American norms, such as measuring ingredients by weight rather than volume, and a full chapter devoted to ``offal'' seem to go hand in hand with vocabulary differences (a ``liquidiser'' is a blender; ``pulses'' are beans, peas and lentils) and unexpected organizational approaches, as in the chapter ``Pasta and Pancakes.'' A generally looser sense of categorization is represented in the chapter ``Cheese,'' which includes a reference page describing traditional English Derbyshire, Stilton and Cheshire; recipes for Greek salad; pizza; ``fillets'' of sole gratinee; and gnocchi, along with souffles and cheese tarts. American cooks may miss balsamic vinegar, tropical fruits and exotic vegetables and question the emphasis on heavy cream, butter and lard. But Smith's streamlined lists of ingredients and her chatty instructions lend an appealing air to basic, unexceptional recipes. Photos.
