The Illustrated Kitchen Bible is all quality content-a tremendous resource of over 1,000 delicious, achievable, and international recipes, with sumptuous photography, precise text, and innovative ideas.

This book takes recipes and techniques and puts them under the microscope. How to get the best when shopping? What the preparation and cooking stages are? What to look for? What should it feel and smell like? How to save the day if something isn't right? What to serve with it? What to do with the leftovers (if there are any)? The result is home cooking at its most perfect.

Victoria Blashford-Snell's great passion is cooking for parties large and small. With her dynamic personality and love of food, she runs a successful catering company and is a regular cooking teacher and demonstrator in Italy, Somerset, and at London's Books for Cooks. Known for bold tastes and pairing unusual flavours, nothing Victoria does is in a small way. A true diva, she knows the secret of throwing a great party is to cook, eat, and, most importantly, have fun. Jennifer Joyce came to love cooking at an early age, while growing up in a food-obsessed Italian family of nine children. At the tender age of 10, she was making dinner for 11 people. Currently Jennifer works as a food writer, a teacher at Books for Cooks and other culinary schools, a television presenter and food consultant. Jennifer is passionate about travel which constantly gives her new ideas and recipes. Born in Wisconsin, Jennifer now lives in Richmond-upon-Thames in the UK with her husband Pat, and their two young sons, Liam and Riley.
