Cooking is both an art and a science but there is no need to be afraid of it!

The science part is collecting ingredients, identifying which work well and blend into amazing flavours to make up your dish. In this way cooking is like a chemical equation. You add all the ingredients, apply heat and you get a chemical reaction.

Artistically speaking, cooking is a symphony of taste, aroma and colour that stimulates the senses. The cooked product appeals to the eyes, if you like how a dish looks; nose, if you like the smell; touch, the texture and temperature; and especially taste, for tasting those luverly flavours!

Don't let the above put off any of you first time cooks though, it's not a difficult process (well it can be but, like anything in life, start out with the easier dishes and as your confidence grows try something a little harder). Most of the recipes in this section are easy, "Cupboard" Chicken Casserole followed by Impossible Coconut Pie would be a meal to make your mum proud and are both really easy to make. Go on, have a go!

At the bottom is a section about recipes from the Second World War, when things were in short supply. Some major, and rather surprising, substitutions had to be made due to scarcity of the proper ingredients.
