I’m that person that lives in fear of the physical book industry dying out. I used my sister’s Kindle once and I wasn’t happy about it.
But I’m not just sad about the potential demise of my favourite fiction; I have a deep love for cookbooks, and while I do spend hours pinning recipes on Pinterest, there’s nothing like having to balance a book in the kitchen while you’re peeling and chopping and all sorts! Here are (just a few of) my favourites at the moment:
Save with Jamie
Who doesn’t love a bit of Jamie Oliver though? This book is a godsend for making the most out of food you already have! Each section starts with a big ‘mother recipe’, if you will, and then all the following recipes show what you can do with the leftovers of said meal.
Yo Sushi: The Japanese Cookbook
That’s right, all your favourite dishes from Yo in one book, eek! I was so excited when I saw this book, Yo Sushi boasts some of my favourite dishes – I’m looking at you, pumpkin korroke! It’s got everything from hand rolls to rice dishes to meat and seafood!
Reader’s Digest 30-minute cookbook
Sometimes the glamorous, shiny covered, celebrity chef recipe books that you need. Sometimes you just need a book that’s full of quick, easy and hearty recipes, and lots of them! This book is packed with family favourites, healthy options and good old classics, and I’ve got quite a few post-its stuck around it.
You can tell from the slight sticky stain on the spine of this book that its seen a fair amount of action! I love making marshmallows, and while I knew how to do it before I got this book, there are so many fun and fresh variations in here, and the cover is squishy too!
Ok, so I’m yet to try any recipes from this book just yet, but from reading it I can already tell I’m going to love it. Duff has been an inspiration since I watched my first ever episode of Ace of Cakes, and I was so excited when I saw this book was coming out that it went straight on my Christmas list! Its full of everything from bread to blondies and it all looks so delicious!
