Cooking by Numbers takes as its original premise the fact that what we cook is governed by a whole set of specific circumstances, from who are we cooking for and how many people, to when can we shop and how much time to we have to cook. But most cookbooks seem to forget this simple fact. As the title suggests, the recipes are divided by how many people they serve.

What we cook is governed by a whole set of circumstances, not least the number of people we're cooking for. Rustling up a quick meal for one requires a different approach to impressing a dinner party of ten. A speedy supper for two will doubtless differ from a leisurely lunch for six.

Matthew Fort is the food and drink editor of the Guardian. He won the Glenfiddich Award as Cookery Writer of the Year in 2005, and has appeared on the BBC's The Great British Menu and UKTV Food's Market more
