If you only use the useful Chicken Pie recipe on page 90, this is worth purchasing at this discounted price. However, there are plenty of other good recipes and ideas. I bought it because I liked the savouries on the front cover but it is on delving in that it gets more interesting. The time plans are super useful and it is good for keeping reasonably up-to-date with current food fashions without becoming too off the wall.
