Spiced Lamb Koftas with Minted Yoghurt from Cookery School Book

I've very kindly been sent the Cookery School book by Michelin-starred chef Richard Corrigan.  Richard wrote the book to accompany 'Cookery School' the Channel 4 television series in which he stars along with Gizzi Erskine and is shown every week day at 2.05pm.

Scummy yummy lamb kofta kebabs with a mint and cucumber yoghurt dip.
The book is so easy to follow and as it's title suggests.  Many of the recipes and cooking techniques have step by step instructions with pictures. 
The only thing that the book is missing is a ribbon book mark!  But that's just my suggestion and no big deal at all, as it is of course, easy to use a piece of paper as a bookmark.

The book is well laid out and as I said very easy to follow.  It covers recipes and techniques in different categories, Basic, Intermediate, Advanced and super Advanced.  I think this book is excellent, not only for absolute beginners in cookery but also for people like myself that it always wanting to learn more.

Everything is covered from how to cook clams, down to when to serve a cheeseboard and what it should include.
I say it's a seriously great book for anyone to have, excluding of course, Richard Corrigan himself!
