In every recipe we have included some sections to guide you through the reading.
Ready in: the time required to prepare the dish, from start to finish.
Easy: an everyday course, very straight forward, perfect for beginners
Medium: requires average cooking skills.
High: elaborate and demanding, suggested to those who are confident amateur cooks.
Low: below £3 per person.
Moderate: between £3 and £6 per person.
Expensive: more than £6 per person.
Note on the ‘Cost’: The calculation of the cost is based on mid-range products from Sainsbury’s and Waitrose in the London area. This is thought to be just a guideline as those reading from different areas of the UK and different countries will probably have to adapt the values mentioned above to their own market.
