New cookbooks?

I love buying cookbooks and haven`t bought any in a couple of months so am having withdrawal symptoms. Can you recommend any? I`m looking forward to Autumn when Delia brings out her Christmas one and as a fan of Rachel Allen, she also is having ne published at that time so roll on Autumn.

If I buy anymore books....

.....I swear Marc will slap me! :)

I really need to trim things down, the new place is so much smaller than the old one so things have got to go. I've taken bags and bags of stuff to the charity shop so far, but more will have to go.

I did a book people order a couple of months ago and added a couple of cook books that I've been enjoying.

"Pizza, calzone and focaccia" by Maxine Clark and a little boxed set of 8 small paperbacks which were only £4.99 (I think the pizza one was £2!)

There is some yummy looking things in the pizza one that I've marked to try and the little set of 8 is really good. I didn't want all of them, but luckily, Mum seems to enjoying cooking the things that I don't like cakes, puddings etc, so she was happy to get the 3 from the set that I didn't want. I've been left with:

hearty soups
easy starters
pizza
brunch
pasta sauces.

There are several things in each that I shall be trying. They are makred at £4.99 each, and I would not have paid that, but £4.99 for the set of 8 was a bargain.

I have also been revisiting Delias How to Cheat, have not looked at it for ages and now have made three or four things from in in the last couple of weeks. I don't always do the cheating bit (like the cauliflower, brocoli and cheese soup - I didn't buy ready prepared veg, I had both in the fridge so used them up) But I still like getting ideas from the book. Im not above a bit of help in the kitchen anyway, and I don't care what anyone says, I LIKE aunt bessies frozen mash!

Talk about going off the point Jim-Bob!

Too many books

Can second the too many books thread and i now order books from the library and make sure that i will use them before i buy although i do make exceptions . I ought to have a good sort out of my books but i keep putting it off,

Far too many

I have. Been doing the same as you just recently Tilly. The library is good at getting in new cookery books and you can reserve them on line now, ...foodie.

Vinegar

Having promised myself to buy no more, I was tempted by one last week in a garden centre - all about vinegar, of all things! Fascinating!

Not lately

My New Years Resolution was not to buy any more cookery books and I haven't given in yet.But in the next week or so I may have to because I have seen one I quite like, but it's only a small one, so maybe that won't count. It feels really strange to go into town and come home without a new cook book.

how odd is that, the book I have seen is also in the garden centre, they have the one all about vinegar, but don't fancy that.

£1.99

Mine was only £1.99, Vi - otherwise I probably wouldn't have bought it!

New books

Bought the following recently:
Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook- got it from The Book People as we got fed up with waiting when Amazon would deliver so we cancelled it & got it from the Book People, it was cheaper as well.

Miss Dahl's Voluptuos Delights- have only made one dish so far & will be giving others a go soon.

Short Cut Rhodes- an old Gary Rhodes book that was recommended by a friend. We were wanting to photocopy certain recipes but it got to a point that we would end up with the whole book so went online to see if the book still exists. we got a second hand copy for 2.76GBP

BTW

Also got BBC Good Food Magazine's 101 One Pot Dishes. I heard that a part 2 will be launched in October so am looking forward to that!

North American cookbook

For anyone on this side of the pond, I was disappointed last birthday to be given a book I knew nothing about but have since found it has some really great recipes and tips. It's the Williams-Sonoma Cookbook - and I am growing to love it!

It's also a very nice looking book.

Williams Sonoma

I love their shops and have several of their "individual" cookbooks - particularly like the photo facing each recipe!

Williams Sonoma

I'm another lover of their shops and love to have a good browse when I'm in North America.

Tannary Cookbook

Got it at Xmas and it's a lovely book but I haven't cooked a single recipe from it. So I know what you mean. Have just ordered Lord Tebbit's "The Game Cookbook" and I know I'll def be using that.

Fay Ripley

I`ve just ordered Fay Ripley`s Cooking for Families. Only £5 from Amazon. It has great reviews so I am looking forward to it.
