In How to Cheat at Cooking, Delia has sourced a range of pre-prepared foods (from tins, chill cabinets, freezers and store cupboards) to help you short circuit cooking times and techniques. Readily available from supermarkets, delis, online food shops and farmers markets and of the very best quality these recipes using instant time savers will allow you to create fabulous food without the faff. How to Cheat is for people who don't want to cook, who think they can't cook, or simply don't have the time to cook. As Delia herself says, 'Cheating's come on a lot and there's much more available. The way it's going I can't think of anybody who wouldn't want it.'

This is Delia's first book in four years and it's been created with her characteristic attention to detail. Delia is Britain's most trusted food writer and her formidable track record of over 19 million book sold speaks for itself. Comprising over 150 easy-to-follow recipes and with a refreshing contemporary design, the book is a guaranteed bestseller, not least because 2008 will mark Delia's return to our screens with a six-part primetime BBC television series.

About the Author:

Delia Smith is Britain's bestselling cookery author, whose books have sold over 18 million copies. From her first job as a cookery writer for the Daily Mirror's magazine in 1969, Delia published How To Cheat at Cooking, then presented Family Fare for BBC1. Her series How To Cook, was a huge success. In 2002 she produced her Vegetarian Collection, then The Delia Collection - Soup, Chicken, Chocolate, Fish, Italian, Pork, Baking and Puddings. Delia is a director of Norwich City Football Club, where she is in charge of Canary Catering, several restaurants and food and wine workshops. She is married to the writer and editor Michael Wynn Jones. They live in Suffolk.

Review:

"I really see Delia as a sunbeam of rational thoughts, striking through the clouds of food fashion...If any of these ingredients gives you a shudder, just ask yourself, who's more likely to be right: you or Delia? No, you lummox, it's not you." -- Zoe Williams * The Guardian * "Delia's first new book in four years is set to become one of the biggest selling publications of all time...At 66, Delia is the mistress of mumsiness. I salute the queen of ease and an unashamed advocate of instant mashed potato." -- Amanda Platell * Daily Mail * "Like any priestess worth her salt, she has absolved us of our guilt by occasionally employing time-saving devices, from ready-made sauces to pre-grated cheese...Yet when the timer has pinged and the cake has risen, Delia is The One" * The Independent * "With Delia's How To Cheat at Cooking, Middle Britain's culinary saint has turned into a mischevious little devil...Oh, saint Delia. You have sinned and how we love you." -- Richard and Judy * Daily Express * "I love Delia. I love the way she has introduced the pleasure of cooking into so many people's lives....The way I look at it is this. There is a whole world of cooking that lies between soaking your own beans and the microwave-head's instant chilli con carne. Somewhere along that line most of us will probably say 'No, I'm not going to do that - I don't have the time' or 'No, I'm not skipping that bit, it would be cheating the very people I am cooking for'. Somewhere along that line lies Delia's How To Cheat. No, I won't be buying her suggestion of ready-sliced and cooked onions...But I know that there are many people who will find that those canned onions in olive oil and a packet of frozen pastry will mean the difference between making their kids a lovingly home-made pie and giving them a defrosted one from Iceland." -- Nigel Slater * Observer Food Monthly *
