The Guardian's 'How to Make' food columnist Felicity Cloake is on a mission to find the perfect recipes for staple dishes, from spag bol to apple pie and from brownies to fish pie, in her first cookbook Perfect – 68 essential reciepes for every cook's repertoire.

How can I make deliciously squidgy chocolate brownies? Is there a foolproof way to poach an egg? Does washing mushrooms really spoil them? What's the secret of perfect pastry? Could a glass of milk turn a good Bolognese into a great one?

Perfect will answer all these questions and many, many more. Having rigorously tried and tested recipes from all the greats – from Elizabeth David and Delia Smith to Nigel Slater and Simon Hopkinson – Felicity Cloake has pulled together the best points from each to create the perfect version of 68 classic dishes. Never again will you have to rifle through countless different books to find the your perfect roast chicken recipe, mayonnaise method or that incredible tomato sauce – it's all here in this book, based on Felicity's popular Guardian column, along with dozens of invaluable prepping and cooking tips that no discerning cook should live without.

Whether you're a competent cook or have just caught the bug, Perfect has a place on every kitchen shelf.

'Brilliant. . . finely honed culinary instincts, an open mind and a capacious cookbook collection…Miss Cloake has them all' Evening Standard

These made fantastic presents for my father in law last Christmas who is still going on about them and cooking from them months later. He’s so impressed, I’m hoping my husband will buy me my own copies this coming Christmas!!

Excellent starter for a beginning cook and inspiration for the more experienced

Very good…I’m certainly going to try to master most of the recipes

First of all I have to confess to not reading the author’s column as many others who have also purchased this book have. Because of seeing this book without reading the columns I have found the text before each recipe to be of just the right amount of information to explain why various ingredients add or could possibly detract from the final result. I think anymore information would be a bit of an overload!

OK, I admit it, I love to cook and I love to get my hands on decent recipes to turn the mundane task of making a meal into an extravaganza for the taste buds. Yet the major problem with a lot of the books out there is that there’s a large percentage of recipes that you really either won’t try and really don’t attract your attention enough to make you want to try them.

This book is brilliant and so well written. There is an excellent range of useful and interesting recipes – they are all dishes that you would actually want to make (or make already, but can now improve!). It is a very interesting book to read and the recipes are all clear and easy to follow.

Well conceived, well written and well executed. Excellent.

found felicity online while recipe hunting – like the book only thing is the first recipe I tried is the chicken soup, list of ingredients includes 750ml of chicken stock, but the method does not say what to do with this? Is there an errata for this book?

Perfect is the appropriate word. The fairy cakes and Victoria sponge are to die for. Some things seem time consuming like the roast pork, but well worth the effort. Everything i have cooked from this book has been great
