I am a big fan of cookbooks and have a bookcase slowly filling up with them. I Rarely actually cook from them and use them more for ideas but enjoy sometimes taking the time to cook a proper recipe. Girlfriend on the other hand won’t cook anything without the actual recipe.
So what are peoples favourite books?
I have a lot more exciting and colourful books but I think mine is Nose to Tail at Home. Was very useful when I went to the butchers after an afternoon in the pub and came home with a pigs head.
Want to start eating less meat and having more vegetarian meals. Any suggestions for vegetarian cookbooks?
Yotam’s good for vegetarian stuff and for flavour combo ideas. Hot Sour Salty Sweet’s probably my favourite cookbook I own, just a really beautiful book tbh (think it was a @eems recommendation last time we had this thread)
The Good Housekeeping Vegetarian Cookbook is very good for the absolute basics - it’s nothing fancy, but takes you through with simple recipes and gives you enough knowledge to start making your own things:
(other, more tax-payer-friendly retailers are available)
I’ve actually got this and it is really good for when you have a few odd ingredients left from other meals. I need to remember to use it more though. Spent ages flicking through it looking for all the really odd combos.
