This book is ideal for mothers and grandmothers employed outside of the home which results in little time to pass down the knowledge of cooking real food to our daughters, sons and grandchildren. This book goes a long way to teach (or re-teach) those of us who have chosen to abandon store bought processed/corporate food how to prepare real food (preferably locally grown organic food) for our loved ones and friends. The fact that Kevin Dundon is a well-known master chef, accomplished author, restaurateur, teacher, businessman and owner of the Dunbrody Country House Hotel in County Wexford, Ireland adds confidence in selecting this book for purchase. This book makes a great gift for anyone interested in great food and how to prepare it. At the time of purchase, this book was not available for Kindle. However, I did find this cookbook available for purchase/download on a iPad.

Good cookbook. It takes a little while to get used to the metric measurements even though the regular measurements are right there too. But his recipes are easy to follow and are really good. Some I have not made before and it was a pleasure to try something new and have it taste as good as the picture. I will recommend this cookbook to everyone especially a beginner cook.

This guy is the Lydia Bastianich of Ireland...I LOVE him and his cookbooks! Simple, easy recipes that anyone can make--and the results are delicious. With cookbooks like this, people truly have no excuse NOT to cook at home.

I buy a lot of cook books.Saw this man's show on PBS.This is one of the better cook books out thereI have been surprised how well the Irish recipes match our US taste buds.

I love Kevin Dundon's PBS shows and this is my second cookbook written by him. The recipes are easy to follow and the ingredients are also easy to find. I like to watch his show (by the same name) and follow along with him. It's kind of nerdy, but I tend to do that with many of my favorite chef's.

So excited! Good food, keeping it simple! Great cookbook, appropriately named back to basics bible. I haven't cooked in a long time. Kids are gone more than a decade. Miss cooking good foods, plus some new recipes and all the basics that you do when you cook all the time that you do automatically. This book brings you back with confidence.

First of all, I have to say that I very much Kevin Dundon's TV shows. And this book certainly is nicely as far as graphics, etc. But, unfortunately for me, the indexing of topics is pretty darned poor. Almost impossible to find specific topics except by paging through the book. Also very difficult to relate some of the recipes to specific TV shows. So a nice glossy book by a great chef but, for the book itself, a disappointment.

Kevin's "Back to Basics" is a great instructive book. I love his idea for poached eggs. I wonder why other chefs have not discovered his trick.
