Tells you all you need to know about cooking on/in an AGA.
Having moved into a house where the only means of cooking is an AGA I was a little nervous. I'm considered a good cook and I was a bit worried that I wouldn't get the hang of the AGA and we'd have to get rid of it. The AGA has turned out so far to be wonderful and this book is very useful and reassuring. It explains things very well. It is not a recipe book as such and there aren't any glossy pictures of yummy food. However it tells you all you need to know and sets your mind at rest. One small gripe is that as is usual in a lot of cookery books you get several entries for things in the index and so have to consult several pages before you find what you are looking for. I bought the book second hand. I found it more useful than the Mary Berry book which the previous owners left in the house. I think this is because the Mary Berry book is very heavily meat orientated and I'm vegetarian. I also bought the Traditional Aga book of vegetarian recipes by Louise Walker which is also good. If you are getting an AGA for the first time or moving into a house with an AGA this is the book you should get. I think there are small hints and tips books by the same person. It is better to get the complete book in my opinion.Read full review
Every AGA owner should have one
A great book - a must have for all AGA owners. So many fab ideas and recipes from the King of AGA-Land.
